Intel's 12-Core i9 CPU May Clock Well below AMD's Threadripper

Specifications included in a leaked price list suggest that Intel's 12-core i9-7920x has lost the megahertz war to AMD: the $800 12-core Ryzen Threadripper 1920X is clocked at 3.5GHz, while the $1189 i9-7920x only runs at 2.9GHz.

Intel's 12C/24T Core i9 7920X will apparently run with a base frequency of just 2.9GHz, which is 400MHz lower than the 10-core 7900X.

Of course, what Intel hasn't revealed in these pricing details is the Turbo speed of the 7920X.

For example, if we look at the 7900X, as mentioned it has a base speed of 3.3GHz but Turbo to 4.3GHz (and a single-core boost even further to 4.5GHz). AMD recently said it will launch its $1,000 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X at 3.4GHz, and its $800 12-core Ryzen Threadripper 1920X at 3.5GHz. And even beyond having the core specs, we can't truly judge anything until the Threadripper and Core i9 processors are fully put through their paces by testing and benchmarking.

KitGuru Says: CPU clock frequencies aren't everything when it comes to measuring speed, IPC will also play a big role.
