I’ll be posting the Skylake-X i9-7900X and Kaby Lake-X i7-7740X reviews in the near future (I just received what I hope will be ‘final’ firmware for the test board). In the meantime, I wanted to talk specifically about Kaby Lake-X, as it can be a rather confusing part. What is Kaby Lake-X, and do we really need it?To start, LGA2066 with the X299 chipset is Intel’s latest ‘enthusiast’ platform, offering the potential for up to 18-core processors. (The LGA115x series of sockets have been Intel’s ‘mainstream’ platform for the past eight years.) Previously, the bottom of the enthusiast platform started with 6-core parts (for Haswell-E and Broadwell-E on LGA2011-v3), but Intel also has a couple of lower tier parts this round, the i7-7740X and the i5-7640X.
