Skylake-X 28 Core

NEW YORK -- Intel today announced a 28-Core chip based on its Skylake-X architecture, the Intel Xeon W-3175X. That surpasses its old record of 18 cores with the  i9-7980XE Extreme Edition processor. It will begin shipping this December.

The chip unlocked chip will go up to 4.3GHz and offers 125GBps of memory bandwidth. This is, essentially, an overclocked server chip, so it will go into server-class motherboards rather than an X399 chipset.
