During National Day,The new HEDT platform's flagship Core X processor, Cascade Lake-X, was officially released. It is still based on 14-nm technology and Skylake architecture, with a maximum of 18 core 36 threads. In addition to continuing to increase frequency, the upgrade focuses on memory, PCIe, AI artificial intelligence, network and other aspects, while maintaining a new look.LGA2066 interface, continue to match the X299 motherboard.
The flagship model Core i9-10980XE, 18 core 36 threads, three-level cache 24.75MB, the reference frequency maintained at 3.0GHz, the maximum acceleration frequency of Core 2.0 single core increased from 4.4 GHz to 4.6 GHz, the acceleration frequency of Core Max 3.0 increased from 4.5 GHz to 4.8 GHz, and the full-core acceleration frequency increased from 3.8 GHz.
Although the latest Core X processor specifications have not changed much, prices have plunged by 50%. The most expensive Core i9-10980XE costs only $979, up from $1799.
In addition to the price surprise,It's also worth noting that Intel upgraded the network card from 1 Gbps to 2.5 Gbps, and the new platform integrates the main control of Intel i225, which can replace the current i219-V gigabit network card for only $2.4..
According to the latest information, Intel not only pushes 2.5Gbps network card on HEDT platform, but also on Comet Lake and 400-series chipset which will come out in Q1 quarter next year. That is, it will take 2.5Gbps network card as an important selling point and vigorously promote the popularization of 2.5Gbps network.
The network speed of 2.5Gbps is 2.5 times that of wired network at present. Although the external broadband connection does not need such a high-speed network, the demand of home networking is also very high. The network speed of 2.5Gbps LAN interconnection is also very convenient.
