If this table is to be believed, Intel’s X299 CPUs will offer some impressive boost clock speeds when compared to their Broadwell-E counterparts. The two highest end models, the i9 7900X and the i9 7820 are listed as having a turbo boost 3.0 clock speed (single core boost speed) of 4.5GHz, which is huge for a CPU with such a high core count.
At this time this report cannot be verified, though it matches some previous rumours. Intel’s X299 platform is expected to launch within the next month, so we should know whether or not this is true soon enough.
