Intel Core i9 7900X Skylake-X & Core i7 7740X Kaby Lake-X review: rushed release raises the bar

Intel reinforces lead and introduces most unnecessary CPU ever


Benchmarks: web-browsing and Microsoft Office (Word and Excel 2016) 

In Chrome version 58 we run the Jetstream benchmark in order to determine how fast the processor can perform Javascript-calculations. We also run two tests using Microsoft Office 2016: in Word we convert a document of 1000 pages to a PDF-file. In Excel we run calculations in a complex sheet that predicts the future value of a stock portfolio based on the Monte Carlo algorithm.

The Chrome- and Word-benchmarks are primarily single-threaded workloads. Again TurboBoost 3.0 helps the 7900X matching the socres of Intels fastest quad-cores. Excel is very multi-threaded and therefore the red bar of the Core i9 ends up at the top.
