During the pre-show festivities for the PC Gaming Show at E3, Intel revealed the launch date for its Core X series of CPUs. The first Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X chips will go up for preorder Monday, June 19, and shipments will begin "the following week." The products launching at that time range from the four-core, four-thread Core i5-7640K all the way up to the 10-core, 20-thread Core i9-7900X.
Folks with a hunger for more cores will have to wait, however. Intel says the 12-core, 24-thread i9-7920X is expected to begin shipping in August, while the i9-7940X, i9-7960X, and i9-7980XE aren't expected to be available until October. Stay tuned as we learn more from the PC Gaming Show at E3.
