Intel said Wednesday that its next-generation codenamed Cascade Lake-X processors for high-end desktops will be revealed next month. The company says that the new CPUs will provide a significant boost in performance per dollar when compared to its existing codenamed Skylake-X products, which gives some idea regarding improvements of the chips.

Intel naturally does not disclose specifications of its processors that are at least a month away, so instead it demonstrated a slide showing relative performance per dollar in content creation applications. According to Intel’s internal testing, its Cascade-Lake-X processors will provide a 1.74x – 2.09x relative per-dollar performance improvement when compared to Skylake-X.

Trying to figure out exact core count or price points of Cascade Lake-X CPUs from one performance diagram is certainly not a good business. Meanwhile, from Intel’s launch of its 2nd Generation Xeon Scalable products we know that the company offers either a higher frequency, or more cores at the same price when compared to the prior generation products. So, it is reasonable to expect Cascade Lake-X to provide similar advantages compared to Skylake-X. Also, Intel has launched the Xeon W-3200 series based on Cascade Lake, which will offer some similarity to these parts.

Intel’s Cascade Lake-X processors will use LGA2066 socket and will be compatible with Intel X299-based motherboards with appropriate BIOS and features.

    This is because they are cutting the price by 35-50%? Because we all know they aren't getting a 2x performance increase out 14nm+++++++++++!

    Well cutting prices would be good thing! It would mean that amd Also should cut prices and consumers would win... but because this is intel, I have some doupts... Reply

    Why exactly should AMD cut prices? because Intel cant overcharge anymore? though they will and have for a decade. Reply

    You miss the point. People assume that AMD should have less expensive products because they are better, but Intel still has the general public fooled into thinking that Intel is still in the lead?

    If AMD products have a higher level of performance(or have more cores), then there is no reason why AMD should lower prices. Intel is also looking at the products from last year, when everyone is waiting for Threadripper third generation.

    Intel should lower prices because it is NOT the leader anymore, but AMD is already offering more for the money, so doesn't need to cut prices to remain competitive, even if Intel does lower prices.

    " Because thats how competition works. " yes.. in intels case.. intel cant way over charge for its cpu's any more.. but there is no need for amd to cut their prices as well... Reply

    "no need for AMD to cut their prices as well" there is no such thing if competition can out value your products and your sells decline you will cut prices to keep sells coming. again we need to see the products to believe those claims but there always place for price cut especially in HEDT where margins are high and AMD can sure lower prices a lot or release better products that give more value for the same price.

    still no need to.. AMD is already offering more for the price.. its intels pricing that is way off.. and BTW, its sales, nor sells :-) Reply

    I'm seeing 9900KF parts going for ~$400 USD now, even with the 3900X being quite hard to get and very new. If they get pushed down to the $350 range near the 3700X,would it make more sense to get a 9900KF or the 3700X Ryzen? Reply
