The I7-7820X is the second of three new Skylake-X HEDT (high end desktop processors) released by Intel as part of their core X series (the others being the flagship 10-core i9-7900X and the 6-core i7-7800X). The 7820X is an 8-core, 16-thread CPU which will amply satisfy all but the heaviest of multi-threaded use cases. The 7820X requires a relatively expensive X299 (Basin Falls) motherboard, which costs upwards of $250. The 7820X is listed at $599 which is about $200 more than AMD's current flagship 8-core, 16 thread Ryzen 7 1800X. In addition to better IPC, the 7820X is higher clocked with base and max boost clocks of 3.6/4.5 GHz respectively, compared to 3.6G/4.0 GHz for the Ryzen 7 1800X. The additional $200 (50%) buys you around 20% more performance in both single and multi core workloads. Intel have also released several Kabylake-X HEDT CPUs: the 4-thread i5-7640X and the 8-thread i7-7740X and will shortly release of even higher spec Skylake-X processors. It's probably wise to hold off purchasing until the eagerly anticipated 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are launched later this month. [Jul '17 CPUPro]

The 8 core, 16 thread 2700X is AMD’s second generation Ryzen 7 flagship following in the wake of the Ryzen 7 1800X which continues to offer excellent multi-core value for money. This new Pinnacle Ridge processor features the Zen+ architecture with 12nm lithography compared to 14nm previously. Whilst there is no increase in the number of cores, the stock base / boost clocks appear to have received a bump up to 3.7 / 4.3 GHz from 3.6 / 4.0 GHz. The 2700X is compatible with both the new 400 series and 300 series of motherboards. Early benchmarks indicate that the 2700X has a slightly greater effective speed than the 1800X, although further benchmarks are necessary to quantify this. The expected launch price of $329 includes a Wraith Prism cooler and is in the same price bracket as the 1800X and Intel’s Coffee Lake i7-8700K. Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users. [Apr '18 CPUPro]
