Intel XTU Beta Release Improves Intel X299 Support, Final Release Coming Soon

Here’s a quick update regarding the latest release schedule of the Intel XTU benchmark app. The app is getting closer to offering full support for the latest Skylake-X / X299 platform. With a full and final 6.30 release due to be officially available from Intel sometime in the next week, we can offer point you in the direction of a beta release which seems to have ironed out many of the bugs that end users may be experiencing on the new platform.

The latest beta version is is available for download on this HWBOT forum page. Although version initially offered Intel X299 support there were a few bugs which may well have prevented benchmarks being made (platform not recognized being one of them). Intel is clearly working hard behind the scenes to get things sorted with the new platform, with making significant strides towards full X299 support.

We expect a full release to be available on the Intel Download Center in the next few days. Until then this beta release should give X299 overclockers the chance to bench on XTU. We will keep you updated regarding the availability of the full release when it arrives.
