    MartyG

      Hi everyone,

       

      You may be aware that a new Extreme Edition processor range has been announced.  The chips come in Skylake and Kaby Lake architecture, referred to as Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X.  The 'i' speed value goes up to 'i9' in this new range.

       

      The chips come in a variety of core numbers to support all budgets, from 4 cores up to a huge 18 cores.  The Skylake-X processors are the most powerful chips, whilst the Kaby Lake-X is the value-price chip with 4 cores.

      In February 2017, Intel support member Yermi confirmed that the X Series chips would be compatible with RealSense cameras.

      Edit: in further chip news, it has been reported by Intel that the 8th generation Coffee Lake CPUs coming this year will have a 30% performance increase over the 7th generation Kaby Lake.
