The Skylake-X-based Core i7-7820X offers strong multi-threaded performance and a lower price point than Intel’s Broadwell-E equivalent. But we did experience some performance regression in a few game titles and applications. Core i7-7820X delivers the highest possible multi-threaded performance from an eight-core processor, provided the application can utilize its resources effectively.
