Intel is preparing its next-gen Cascade Lake-X family of CPUs with the new flagship Core i9-10980XE being leaked and detailed in some new juicy benchmarks.

Intel's upcoming Core i9-10980XE will be a beast CPU with 18C/36T of power with boost CPU clocks of up to 4.8GHz, as well as what we should expect to see as 24.75MB of L3 cache, and 18MB of L2 cache.

The new Core i9-10980XE leaked benchmark is courtesy of Momomo_Us, who teases the beasty 18C/36T chip with some Geekbench results. The Core i9-10980XE utterly destroys the AMD Threadripper 2950X (and the higher-end 2990WX) in Geekbench v4.2.2 single- and multi-threaded benchmarks.

AMD hasn't launched its third-gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs just yet, something that should see the HEDT market light up between Team Blue and Team Red later this year.
