Intel Core i7-7740X Processor Review

Just the other day we published our review of Intel's Core i9-7900X Skylake-X processor. It was our first review of a processor in Intel's new Core X Series, and now today we have the Core i7-7740X Kaby Lake-X processor. This processor is based on a different micro-architecture than the other processors that sit above it in Intel's X Series product stack. With the i7-7740X you have Kaby Lake cores and it is the first time we've seen Intel launch two generations of processors at the same time (Kaby Lake-X / Skylake-X). The i7-7740X is a quad-core processor with a base clock speed of 4.3 GHz, boosts up to 4.5 GHz, 8 MB of cache, 16 PCI-Express lanes, and a 112W TDP. Intel is pricing this processor at only $339, not a bad price to get into Intel's HEDT platform. If you are building a new system should you be looking at the Core i7-7740X? Read on as we find out!

Intel Core i9-7900X 10-Core Processor Review

2017 will go down as one of the more interesting years in the CPU market. AMD released their Ryzen CPUs earlier this year and now Intel has the brand new Core X Series, which is solely aimed towards gamers and enthusiast. This high-end desktop (HEDT) series is quite interesting as when completely released there will be a total of nine processors, stating with a quad-core Core i5 ($242) and going all the way up to a 18-core Core i9 ($1999). Another new thing we are seeing here is the Core i9 Series, which is reserved for the highest-end Intel processors. Intel will release five out of the nine Core X Series processors on June 26th, and today we have the Core i9-7900X up for review. This processor right now is the current flagship until the other processors come out, and it is quite a beast! Rocking 10-cores, 20-threads, a 3.3 GHz base clock, max Turbo Boost 3.0 of 4.5 GHz, 13.75 MB of cache, 44 PCI-Express lanes, and a TDP of 140 watts. You get all of this for $999. Let's jump in and see what the i9-7900X is all about!

AVADirect Affinity HTPC System Review

AVADirect is a custom PC maker located in Twinsburg, Ohio, which is basically between Cleveland and Akron. It is great to see a rather large custom PC maker so close to us and in the mid-west. So many PC builders are on the west coast. AVADirect offers all different types of custom PCs from high-end gaming PCs to the home theater variety, which we are taking a look at today. The home theater PC is something that really has evolved over the past few years. So many people want to play their PC games in the living room and AVADirect's Affinity HTPC System will definitely allow you to do that. At the same time the system will look like it actually belongs in your home theater and it will be nice and quiet. Let's take a look at this Affinity HTPC system and see what it can do.
