Intel Core i7-7740X X-Series Kaby Lake-X CPU Review

TweakTown has published a review of the Intel Core i7-7740X today that is certainly worth the click to go check out.

There has been a lot of discussion about Intel's simultaneous launch of its Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs on the X299 chipset. Much of it surrounds the purpose or use case of the i7-7740X and i5-7640X. The two CPUs offer the same PCI-E lane count and dual-channel memory controller as the 7700K and 7600K, and can't take advantage of the X299 platforms' quad channel memory support and expanded PCI-E lane options.
