As anticipated earlier, Intel withdrew the non-disclosure agreement on Core-X reviews yesterday. Not just that, the Core-X CPUs and the X299 motherboards are now available in retail stores for preorder. The actual availability of the much-anticipated products will commence on June 26, 2017.

Intel is splitting the Core-X series into three distinct parts. These include:

  • Intel Kaby Lake-X (4 Core CPUs)
  • Intel Skylake-X (6, 8, 10 Core CPUs)
  • Intel Skylake-X Xtreme Core Count (12, 14, 16, 18 Core CPUs)

As it has been known for some time, the initial launch would start with the Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X chips. The Kaby Lake-X lineup includes two variants, both priced below $350. Meanwhile, the Skylake-X family comes with as many as 10 cores and it will cost you up to $1000.

And finally, there is the XCC, acronym for Extreme Core Count. The XCC models will flaunt up to 19 cores. They will be priced considerably higher and will cost up to $2000 once they hit the store shelves sometime during Q3 2017.
