I am only guessing here, but I would think that there will be very few reviews of that chip. In no situation is it the fastest Skylake-X chip (see the image below), so Intel has no incentive to send out free chips for reviewers to test. Reviewers have a lot more important things to do with their time and money than to buy this chip for a review.Well, 28. august is here, no reviews of 7920x? Or we are still waiting for exact hour of the day?
The cheaper 7900X is as fast or faster than the 7920X in all core counts, except for the 11 and 12 core use cases. But, the 7940X is as fast or faster than the 7920X in all cases, including the 11 and 12 core situations. So the 7920X sits in a bad location. Intel doesn't even price the 7920X low enough to make it a worthy buy. If you are already spending $2000+ on a system with the 7920X, just spend $200 more for the much better 7940X.
