Intel Core i9 7900X & Core i7 7740X Review

Our friends at Overclockers Club have pit the Intel Core i9 7900X against the Core i7 7740X today in a showdown for the ages. Well, probably not the "ages" but its still pretty damn interesting to see how the two compare.

These new processors are designed and built to be used in Intel's latest X299 High End Desktop socket 2066 platform. The Core i7 7740X is basically the same silicon we looked at on the Seventh Generation Core i7 7700K review earlier this year, but packaged to run in the 2066 pin socket.
