Intel Core i7-7820X

Are you excited about all these insane CPUs that are hitting the market? I’m sure many of you are, but there’s one particularly big problem, their price. The flagship i9 is currently close to £2000/$2000 and that’s quite literally freaking bonkers money for a typical consumer. Sure, there’s a market for it given its performance, but what’s Intel got for everyone else? The new Intel Core i7-7820X of course!

Equipped with a mighty 8 core and 16 thread design, this is a nice middle ground between being a big upgrade from the last generation, without being as over the top as the i9. On paper, it still looks like it’s going to be a mighty CPU for rendering, workstation tasks, and more. Of course, we also have high expectations of its gaming performance.
