Intel officially released the most of its new X-series processors in June 2017. We only have general information, like core count and prices, about the upper tier models above the i9-7900X. At the same time, AMD’s Threadripper CPUs are ready to step into the enthusiast market.

Recently (July 14), Intel reveals the i9-7920X processor’s pricing and base clock speed in its CPU Price List. The CPU will have 12 cores, 24 threads, paired with 16.5 MB of cache. It will be running at 2.90 GHz. No Turbo clock speed is announced.

When comparing with other processors, the i9-7920X seems to have a lower base clock speed. Its 10-core variant, i9-7900X, has a clock speed of 3.30 GHz, about 12.2% higher (+400 MHz). The 12-core Threadripper 1920X is clocked at 3.5 GHz, about 20.7% higher. A lower base clock speed may slightly reduce the i9-7920X’s single-core performance.
