Core i7-7740X dan TUF X299 Mark 2

Platform LGA 2066 yang dirilis oleh Intel pada Agustus 2017 lalu merupakan platform high-end desktop (HEDT) terbaru yang diposisikan untuk menggantikan LGA 2011-v3. LGA 2066 diusung dengan chipset X299 yang menggantikan X99 pada LGA 2011-v3. Pada platform HEDT Intel terbaru kali ini Intel mengandalkan arsitektur Skylake untuk prosesor dengan 6 core atau lebih dan arsitektur Kabylake untuk prosesor dengan 4 core.

Kali ini, Hexatekno berkesempatan menjajal prosesor Core i7-7740X yang diusung sebagai prosesor berarsitektur Kabylake tercepat yang dibuat oleh Intel. Core i7-7740X memiliki spesifikasi yang mirip dengan Core i7-7700K namun dengan prosesor grafis bawaan (IGP) yang dinonaktifkan, clock dasar yang lebih tinggi (4.3 GHz vs 4.2 GHz), dam dukungan memory yang lebih kencang (DDR4-2666 vs DDR4-2400). Core i7-7740X juga memiliki TDP yang lebih tinggi dibandingkan sepupunya Core i7-7700K yang berada di platform mainstream desktop (112W vs 95W).
