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


Gaming benchmarks (GTX 1080 Ti): GTA V

In GTA V, the 7900X performs similar or a bit better than its predecessor 6950X, depending on the settings. The results are fine, but the higer clocked quad-cores like the Core i7 7700K and 7740X perform even better. One reason appears to be that GTA V taxes just about every core, but not very heavily. The Turbo mode hence remains offline, due to which clock speeds remain relatively low. The 7740X performs like the 7700K: excellently.
