The most expensive HEDT processor ever announced yet still not for sale was benchmarked by some tech enthusiasts, giving us an idea on how the monstrous 18-core / 36-thread CPU will perform.
A Korean tech-site ‘Coolenjoy’ releases early benchmarks of the Intel Core i9-7980XE 18-core / 32-thread CPU running on an ASUS APEX motherboard and clocked at 4.2GHz on ALL CPU CORES. The new Turbo Boost 3.0 lets the i9-7980X boost up to 4.4 GHz.
Well, if you aren’t a fan of AMD Threadripper or anything within a budget – you might want to consider this, too, although the price of this multi-tasking beast is a whopping $1999 (~PhP101,9K) which you can obtain if you’re filthy rich, or willing to sell at least one of your precious kidneys.
We gladly attached the benchmarks and screenshots below, you’ll be the judge.
