Intel Core i9-7900X Review: Meet Skylake-X

If you want the lowdown on Intel's upcoming Core i9-7900X processor, head on over to Tom's Hardware for the complete rundown. When it comes to CPU reviews, those guys know their stuff!

Intel’s new Skylake-X processors span the Core i5, i7, and i9 families, but all drop into the same LGA 2066 interface, enabled by the X299 chipset.
