The Intel Core i7-7800X is an entry level Skylake X processor featuring 6 cores and 12 threads. The chip comes with clock speeds of 3.5 GHz base and 4.0 GHz boost and ships with 8.25 MB of cache. The processor features support for quad channel DDR4 memory with speeds rated at 2400 MHz (OC+) and includes 28 PCIe lanes. The chip is compatible with the new LGA 2066 socket based X299 motherboards and will feature a TDP of 140W. The chip is expect to cost $389 US which brings us to its competitor.
Since this is a 6 core chip, we want to compare it against AMD’s flagship 6 core offering, the Ryzen 5 1600X. Although the chip is $120 US cheaper than Intel’s part and ships with similar specs along with a lower TDP and clock speeds of 3.6 GHz and 4.0 GHz, we wanted to get an idea of what the performance looks like on both AMD and Intel 6 core parts.
