Intel's X299 series of CPUs/motherboards may launch sooner than expected

 
Intel's upcoming X299 series of CPUs/motherboards may launch sooner than expected, with newly leaked roadmaps stating that the production samples will be available in late June. 
 
Right now we have no indication that Intel is planning to release Skylake-X before Q3 2017, though there is a chance that they will move forward their release schedule if they find no issues with their LGA 2066 motherboard platform.  

 
With Skylake-X QS samples being available on week 22 of 2017, there is a chance that we will be seeing some early performance numbers at CES 2017, or at least see some upcoming motherboard designs.

Intel's Skylake-X series of CPUs will come with between six and ten CPU cores, with support for quad-channel DDR4 2667MHz memory out of the box, which is an improvement over Broadwell-E's support of quad-channel 2400MHz memory.  Hopefully, this will allow Skylake-X to support higher memory speeds though overclocking, allowing speeds of 3200MHz and over to easily be supported. 

Kaby-Lake X will be coming in quad-core models, with TDPs of 112W and no iGPU components, these CPU will be limited to dual-channel memory support and up to 16x PCIe 3.0 lanes from the CPU.

At this time the exact clock speeds of Intel's upcoming X299 CPUs are unknown, though they are likely to be higher than Intel's current Broadwell-E offerings. 

The largest changes that Skylake-X will offer is an increase in motherboard/platform features, supporting more PCIe lanes through the chipset and their DMI interface, like Intel's current Z170 and Z270 motherboard offerings.
