Intel Core i7-7740X Skylake-X Processor Review

Intel Core i7-7740X

While we’ve already had a lot of fun testing a bunch of X299 motherboards, as well as the flagship Core i9-7900X, we’re now cracking on with the new Core i7-7740X. The flagship CPU was fast, faster than anything we’ve ever tested, but how many people have £1000 to spend on a new CPU? Not many I would bet. However, the new quad-core 8-thread Core i7 looks set to please the masses, with a much more reasonable £330-ish price point. That’s an interesting price for a quad-core Intel CPU right now. Let’s not forget the 8-Core Ryzen 1700X is the same price, and I’m eager to see where the two stack up in a head to head battle.

Check out our reviews of the i9-7900XGigabyte Aorus Gaming 9 Motherboard and ASUS ROG STRIX X299-E Gaming Motherboard.
