At present, the processors that DIY players can buy are mainly the 8th and 9th generation of Core Rui. The top platforms are Core Rui X series, including the first generation of Core Rui i9-7900 series released in 2017 and the second generation released in 2018, namely Core i9-9900 series.
Both generations of Core X processors use Skylake-X architecture, but the first generation products are now retired. Intel has announced that the first generation of Skylake-X processors will be decommissioned from May 29. The final order date will be December 27, 2019, and the final delivery date will be June 5, 2020.
Processors involved include Core i7-7800X/7820X, Core i9-7900X/7920X/7940X/7960X/7980XE, etc., which means that Core i9-7980XE with 18 cores and 36 threads will also be retired, but there are better Core i9-9980XE options.
In addition, during the Taipei Computer Exhibition, Gregory Bryant, senior vice president of Intel and general manager of client computing, revealed that this autumn, a new generation of Core X series fever processors will be launched, covering Core i9 Extreme, Core i9 X, Core i7 X and Core i5 X.
The next generation of Core X series architecture will use Cascade Lake-X architecture as well as 14-nm technology. The main changes include increasing CPU frequency, expanding cache capacity, increasing memory frequency, supporting proud persistent memory, enhancing ghost fuse vulnerability patch, adding AVX-512 VNNI instruction set and DLBoost machine learning acceleration.
