Intel’s 10th generation Core-X CPUs will launch on October 7th, will be available for sale in November

The specifications and the prices for Intel’s 10th generation Core-X series CPUs have been leaked online. According to the leak, Intel’s Core-X series will much cheaper than the previous generation. And to be honest, this is something we need to thank AMD for. After all, its cheaper Threadripper series basically forced Intel to drop the prices.

Intel will be offering four CPU models; Core i9-10980XE, Core i9-10940XE, Core i9-10920XE and Core i9-10900XE.

The Intel Core i9-10900XE will feature 10 cores and 20 threads, whereas the Core i9-10920XE will have 12 cores and 24 threads. The Core i9-10940XE will sport 14 cores and 28 threads, and the Core i9-10980XE will have 18 cores and 36 threads.

All of these CPUs will support up to 256GB of quad-channel DDR4-2933 memory. Also do note that these CPUs will be based on 14nm tech. In other words, these aren’t the next-generation CPUs we mentioned in a previous article.

Intel plans to launch these new CPUs on October 7th, and they will be available for sale in November. What this means is that we’re looking at a paper launch, meaning that we’ll be getting the first reviews on October 7th.
