Intel Company intends to bring to market a new line of high-performance desktop processors by expanding the list of available episodes. Soon consumers will be available with Intel Core i9.
At the moment, series Core i7 includes performance processors for a mass segment (performed LGA115x), and for high-level systems (and with connectors LGA1366 LGA2011). It would be logical to divide the series and leave the Core i7 name for the mass segment, Core i9. But Intel decided to go another way. Along with the release of the new platform, and the new processor socket LGA2066 Company creates chips in two series: Core i7 Kaby Lake-X with four cores and Core i9 Skylake-X, which may be 6, 8, 10 and 12 of cores.
