In an updated CPU pricing list, Intel has revealed the base clock of their upcoming i9-7920X CPU, which will release with 12 CPU cores and a total of 24 threads. 
 
This CPU will come with a base clock of 2.9GHz, which is 400MHz slower than Intel's 10-core i9-7900X, though the company has not revealed the CPU's boost clock speeds at this time.  
 
The i9-7920X will no doubt be compared to AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper, which will also come with 12-cores/24-threads and come with base/boost clock speeds of 3.5GHz and 4.0GHz. AMD's Ryzen CPU will also come with a lower price of $799, with the i9 7920X costing around $400 more. That being said Intel's Skylake-X CPU will likely offer a much higher boost clock and increased overclocking headroom.

Intel releases the base clock of their i9 7920X 12-core CPU  

At the time of writing, Intel's i9 7920X is expected to release in mid-late August, with Intel's higher-end 14-18 core i9 processors being expected to release in October.

Base is 100 faster than the 14 core I just bought for £369. Will be interested to see how this performs stock, and what it will cost.Quote

Me thinks they are not going to be able to compete with AMD on performance or price Quote

Performance they are going to win. Only because their CPUs clock higher than 4ghz, and IIRC Skylake X has a edge over Ryzen (which is around Broadwell EP speeds).

However, whether there's a motherboard on the market that could hold those clocks at, let's say, 4.5ghz? that's the big question. There is a reason why Intel have set the stock base clocks so low. Probably because when all 12 and 24t are going at it the VRMs get taken on a bobsleigh ride to hell.

So if it throttles? then yeah, if the AMD 16 core can hold its clocks at 4ghz then they might just win.Quote
