Today at Computex 2017, Intel announced… well, I’m not actually sure what I can call it. It’s not a chip family, because there are three different architectures involved. When writing the headline for Intel’s latest product announcements, I picked the “Basin Falls” platform to cover it all in one go, because this is by far the most confusing launch Intel has ever orchestrated. Also announced today, but launching later this year, are the new Intel X299 motherboards that had been rumoured for months, along with the brand new Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X high-end desktop processors to combat AMD’s Ryzen and Threadripper products. There’s a lot to talk and think about with this launch, and I’ll have it all ready for you after the jump.
