Intel Releases The Core i9-9980XE

Intel just unleashed its Core i9 9980XE processor.

It is a 18-core CPU that can be seated onto socket 2066 which can also be used in the X299 motherboards. The processor gets a suggested retail price of $1979, which is excluding the VAT (Won’t be thinking about pairing this with your GTX 1060).

Core i9 9980XE resonates from the Skylake-X lineup; thus, a refreshed processor that boasts faster base and turbo clock frequencies. The base clock for the 9980XE is 3 GHz, which is substantially higher than its predecessor (400 MHz). The maximum single-core turbo clock speed is listed to be 4.5 GHz, 100 MHz higher than the 7980XE. The all-core turbo of the 9980XE is unknown but from what we are reading seems to be 3.8 GHz.
