Intel to Launch New X-Series CPUs this Fallby Ian Cutress on May 28, 2019 2:00 AM EST
Today at the Intel Keynote at Computex, SVP and GM Gregory Bryant announced that Intel is set to bring new X-Series CPUs to the high-end desktop (HEDT) market during Fall/Autumn, so around Q4. No other details were presented, but these are likely to be based on the new Cascade Lake silicon we’ve seen launched for the Xeon Scalable market in Enterprise later this year.
Core counts for Cascade Lake go up to 28 cores, however the previous generation X series went up to 18 cores. It will be interesting to see what Intel does with these new processors regarding socket support. Intel did state that there will be increases in memory support, CPU frequencies, and Turbo Boost Max beyond two cores.
More information to follow.
