Intel's most expensive consumer processor in a very long time is nearly here, with the Core i9-7980XE boasting its 18C/36 of CPU power, beating AMD's current Ryzen Threadripper 1950X flagship CPU with 16C/32T.




There are now early benchmarks on the new Intel Core i9-7980XE processor, with 'Coolenjoy' releasing their data on the ASUS APEX motherboard, with the 18C/36T clocked at 4.2GHz on all CPU cores... impressive stuff. Intel has its new Turbo Boost Max 3.0 letting the Core i9-7980XE boost all CPU cores up to 4.4GHz.


Still, just look at these benchmarks... Intel's new Core i9-7980XE is a megatasking BEAST. Priced at $1999, you'll need to sell a kidney or two, but I'm sure it's worth it.
