Intel's upcoming 12-18 core X299 CPUs are now available to Pre-order at overclockers UK, though sadly the retailer has listed no ETA or shipping date. 
 
Intel has stated previously that their i9 7920X would be available on August 28th and that their 14-18 core models would be available from September 25th. These dates may have changed since their initial publication, though we have received no update from Intel in this regard. 
 
The specifications of Intel's whole X299 CPU lineup is listed below, alongside the current UK pricing for each CPU.

We can see that even with increased core counts, Intel has been able to offer some high turbo boost frequencies on their high core count CPU offerings, offering Turbo Boost 3.0 speeds of 4.4GHz, which is a high boost clock speed for any modern CPU. Even so, the base clock speeds of higher-end models do see a downward trend as core counts increase, especially after Intel's CPUs reach a higher TDP of 165W.

I'm rather shocked that AMD has such better base clock speeds. Kinda impressive tbh. I'd like to know which CPU holds the edge at Max OC though.

And just popped in my head, I'd like to see power consumption numbers. Intel says it's lower, but has more cores and higher boost clocks. Would be interesting to see how they compareQuote

Well considering AMD's are lower in price AND is soldered, which has much better heat transfers than TIM, I am so disappointed in this lineup from Intel.Quote

The 18 core intel CPU will probably overclock better than any of the Ryzen CPUs.

Already seen the 10 core 7900X doing 4.8 so I think the 18 core version will manage about 4.3 or 4.4.Quote

I know they're not the same but considering how much we paid for Xeon E5-2699v3's (which is essentially the same spec as the Core i9 7980XE) then these are a steal.Quote

With AMD being so much cheaper, why would anyone bother with these unless they really needed the 18 core variant. Even then, save an extra £200 and get yourself 2 threadrippers!Quote
