The race between to monopolizing processor giants in the industry of desktop computing might have its tables turned for Intel's favor with the Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X i9 variants. At stake will be the highly lucrative high-end PC gaming chip market. If the leak is genuine (and that's a fairly big if) the new Core i9s will replace Core i7s as Intel's top-of the-pile PC chipset range.
The specs for the top-end 12 core Core i9-7920X is unknown.
At the end of the day, Intel's goal is quite simple: It wants to try to get consumers to buy a richer product mix to boost its processor average selling prices and ultimately increase revenues/profits in a challenging overall personal computer market. If this is true, the new Core i9 chips would definitely build a strong lineup of top-of-the-line desktop CPUs.
The number of PCIe lanes in the eight-core Core i9-7820X and six-core Core i9-7800X is reduced to 28, and the boost clock speed of the latter to 4GHz. This unit, however, will have a base clock rate of 4.3 GHz and it will make a 0.2 GHz jump when user step on the Turbo 2.0. The higher-end Core i7-7740K has two threads per core enabled, while the lower end i7-7640K has just one thread per core enabled. It will also feature 16.5MB of L3 cache and 44 PCIe Lanes.
Core i7-7740K: 4 cores, 8 threads, 4.3GHz base, 4.5GHz Turbo, no Turbo Boost 3.0, 8MB L3, 16 lanes of PCIe 3.0. It will clock at 4.0 GHz normally and 4.2 GHz when boosted.
Donald Trump's hit a new low
Trump's support remains stronger among GOP voters. 42 percent of self-identified Trump voters approve of his performance. Similarly, 35 percent of voters say Trump's decision was appropriate, down marginally from 37 percent earlier last week.

Xiaomi launches its first router in India - Mi Router 3C
Xiaomi Vice President and India Managing Director, Manu Jain said, "Redmi 3S was one of the most popular smartphones a year ago ". Xiaomi had launched the two budget-friendly smartphones, Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Prime in China in November a year ago .
The Core i9-7900X, with 10 cores, will have 44 PCIe lanes, a 3.3Ghz base overclockable to 4.5Ghz. For the last six years, all the way back to the 3960X, Intel has offered 2-2.5MB of L3 cache per CPU core in the HEDT family.
The Skylake-X processors are described as Core i9. No word on clock speed, base nor boosted, but it has 16.3 MB allocated for cache and it is rumored to be the one unit to reach 160W levels of heat.
A forum member at AnandTech posted what is purported to be an internal slide outlining a new crop of Core i9 processors.
According to Digital Trends, Intel will release four versions of Core i9 chips, giving you plenty of options according to your needs and budget.
