Intel announced Intel Cascade Lake-X 10th-Gen high end desktop processors lineup which will launch in November. In addition, team blue’s core-x processors will start from just $590 for its model Core i9-10900X. However, the Core i9-9900X will cost around $989. These prices as compare to previous Intel’s HEDT model offers better price/performance ratio. As for AMD’s Threadripper third gen team blue’s announcement of it 10 gen HEDT processors will give a relief.

INTEL CASKADE LAKE-X FEATURES

We will post a review after the launch of Intel Cascade Lake-X processors in November. The 10th-Gen core-X processors have higher turbo boost and higher clock speeds, supports faster and high capacity RAMS. Above all, Caskade Lake-X also have higher number of PCIe lanes. Unfortunately, increased PCIe lanes will not provide support for Gen 4 SSDs and Graphic cards like AMD’s 5700 series. It will be based on 14nm and Skylake architecture.

The rise in boost and base clock frequencies will result a TDP upto 165W for high threaded applications. Intel Caskade Lake-X will not support PCIs gen 4 but it will support X299 platform consuming four more lanes. Moreover, this will give AMD’s processors advantage over Intel’s lineup on PCIe gen 4 support.

The increased performance of memory goes upto 256Gb and DDR4-2933 frequency. It will also support Wi-Fi 6 and 2.5G’s Ethernet. Other features includes upto 4.8 GHz CPU frequency, deep learning boost and 72 platform PCIe lanes on all SKUs.

Moreover, it will support performance maximize software auto overclocking feature. In addition to that will also have a new feature per core overclocking so you can adjust frequency better per-core. Above all, Intel claims 1.74x to 2.09x increase price/performance as compare to AMD’s HEDT processors.

However, the above new feature’s Intel lacks PCIe gen 4 support and still short in core count against AMD. Further more its on 14nm process. In conclusion  we will see more when Intel launches Caskade Lake-X this November. Let us know what you think below in the comments section.
