Over at Computex, Intel announced it's working on the first 28-core, 56-threaded desktop processor. This future Core-X series processor is presumably part of the Cascade Lake-X platform, it will run at a 5GHz Boost clockspeed and is expected to hit retail shelves towards the end of the year.

During the chip giant's keynote, Intel's Greg Bryant ran CineBench R15 and demonstrated how the chip achieves a score of 7334. That's over double as much as what Intel's current fast Skylake-X chip delivers! The Cinebench session showed the chip running at 5GHz on all cores for a couple of seconds.
