Intel totally pulled one over AMD today as they unveiled the new Core X-Series Processors (Code named - Basin Falls) at COMPUTEX 2017 with the flagship processor having a massive 18-cores and 36-threads, that too for a lucrative price of $1,999. Up until now, AMD seemed to have the better SKU (according to rumours) with the Ryzen 9 1998X which is supposedly a 16-core 32-thread ThreadRipper processor but with this release Intel sure has leapfrogged over AMD in the CPU core race. This new processor series will stand right alongside the existing lineup from Intel and will use the new LGA 2066 pin socket which will be present on X299 motherboards. Compared to the previous Broadwell-E processor from 2016, this is a massive upgrade in terms of the number of cores being delivered for much better price point.
