Intel quietly announced the base frequency of its yet unreleased 12-core i9 processor.

The Core i9-7920X, the only 12-core processor from Core-X series, has been added to the official price list. The listing reveals that the base frequency of the CPU is 2.9 GHz, which makes it 400 MHz slower than 10-core i9-7900X.

The CPU is also listed with 16.5 MB L3 cache. No other specs were revealed by Intel.

This means that Intel’s 12-core i9-7920X base frequency will be lower than AMD’s 12-core Threadripper 1920X by 600 MHz.
