Intel Cascade Lake-X HEDT processor appears on SiSoftware's Sandra benchmark database
It seems a Cascade Lake-X HEDT chip has been recently tested on the Sandra benchmark. The full database record name states “Intel GlacierFalls HEDT platform (SKL-X/CLX-X)”, with SKL-X standing for Skylake-X and CLX-X standing for Cascade Lake-X. Glacier Falls is the codename of the platform expected to replace the X299 (“Basin Falls”) PCH for high-end enthusiast products.
The chip in question is simply labeled as “Genuine Intel(R) CPU 0000%” but there are some facts and figures offered for this mysterious and probable engineering sample. This HEDT processor has 10 cores and 20 threads, with a CPU clock rate of 4 GHz with a turbo up to 4.6 GHz. The Cascade Lake-X series is not believed to be bringing massive upgrades over the 9th Gen Skylake-X HEDT chips that were released last year.
Other data offered includes 10x 1 MB L2 cache (1 MB per core) and 19.25 MB L3 cache. This puts this potential Cascade Lake-X sample on a similar footing as the Intel Core i9-9900X, although with a considerably improved base clock rate. SiSoftware’s official live ranker places the chip in 467th position (higher than 99.72%) with an “excellent performance”.
