Intel Core i9-7900X reviews are coming in and it seems that hardware enthusiasts are pretty happy with the performance that they are getting from the chips. The CPU is priced at $999, which is high but this is a price that enthusiasts and companies will have to pay for the additional cores and threads that the Intel Core i9-7900X brings to the table.
In this Intel Core i9-7900X review roundup, we are going to take a look at what enthusiasts and hardware publications have to say about the Intel Core i9-7900X and whether or not it is worth the heavy price tag. The Intel Core i9-7900X is a 10-core, 20-thread processor that can overclock to 4.6 GHz with ease. The CPU has an unlocked multiplier so you can go crazy.
The Core i9-7900X supports quad-channel memory and has a TDP of 140W which is impressive keeping in mind the CPU has 10 cores and 20 threads. According to Bit-Tech:
“The fact that you can get a 10-core CPU to 4.6GHz with relative ease at less than 1.25V with a decent cooler is remarkable, and we have no doubt that it’s the lack of solder between the heat spreader and core that’s holding things back. Thankfully, the Core i9-7900X still represents a big leap in performance in many real-world tests, especially video transcoding and rendering both at stock speed and when overclocked despite thermals limiting overclocking.”
