Intel Core i9-7920X overview

  • 1Description

The Intel Core i9-7920X LGA 2066 Processor provides computing performance for a desktop system by offering twelve cores, which operate at a stock speed of 2.9 GHz, for editing videos, composing soundtracks, and other demanding workloads. The best performing cores can run at speeds of up to 4.4 GHz utilizing Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0. The Core i9-7920X is equipped with Intel Hyper-Threading technology that enables each core to handle two instruction threads, providing the ability to handle up to twenty-four threads. If you need even more performance, this Skylake-X processor is unlocked, which lets you overlock the processor over its maximum speed. This Core X-series processor does not include a heatsink or fan and requires a sold-separately CPU cooling solution to function at these levels of performance.

Aside from processing power, the Core i9-7920X provides 44 PCI Express 3.0 lanes to multiple graphics cards and PCIe-based M.2 SSDs. The processor is compatible with motherboards offering an LGA 2066 socket and has an average power requirement of 140W. When installed in a motherboard, the processor supports DDR4 2666 MHz memory modules, running in a quad-, dual-, or single-channel configuration. In addition, a total amount of 16.5MB L3 cache memory is available for its twelve cores.

The Intel Core X-series processor is designed to scale to the desktop's needs by using the fastest cores at higher frequencies when performance is required. The Intel Core X-series processor family is unlocked to provide additional headroom. Its features include the ability to overclock each core individually, AVX ratio controls for more stability, and VccU voltage control for extreme scenarios. With tools such as Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU) and Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP), you'll have access to modify the system for maximizing performance.
Intel Smart Cache
All cores now have access to the entire last-level cache, pre-fetching data before requests are made. Intel Smart Cache also offers a power-saving feature that dynamically flushes memory based on demand or during periods of inactivity, ensuring your applications keep up with your demands.
Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 identifies the processor's fastest cores and directs the most critical workloads there. With improved single-threaded performance, you'll get the best performance possible out of your computer.

    Intel Core i9-7920X reviews

    Core i9-7920X X-Series 2.9 GHz Twelve-Core LGA 2066 Processor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sings I mean it is pretty hard to tell the difference when using regular household applications. New box got this for new ('18) Adobe versions that were complaining on so nice Win7 machine. 3DSMax will render faster too when back at that. Also gave new Asus 2066 mobo its full 128Gb. Video converter times are definitely faster. Not a pro but I am getting that "stayed at a Holiday Inn last night" feeling a lot more regularly now. Most satisfying on Windows 10 - (drag that it is by default) - is finally getting the Win 7 (adult) desktop look back, and then disabling all of the Win10 GUI animation features, window fade in-out transitions. Brain like sensation of absent milliseconds.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Performance Doesn't Justify Price Just search for "i9 processor waste heat" on google, and you'll see why this is not a good processor for the money. Intel decided to cut costs and couple the processor core to the lib with thermal past instead of the more conductive tin-indium solder. The result is that, past a certain point, you can't cool this thing down no matter what kind of cooler you use. If you plan on operating this at the stock speed, you'll probably be OK. If you go the slightest bit beyond that, forget about stability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Easy Install After about a week of use, my computer is very fast. The install was easy. Packaging was protective without much waste.
