Some rumours have been floating around regarding Intel's X299 platform, with reports of an upcoming Skylake-X refresh with higher core clock speeds and a soldered IHS for enhanced cooling potential.
It is believed that these parts will offer core clock speed improvements of 150-200MHz in the base/boost clock speeds for each SKU, with the soldered IHS offering enhanced overclockability over the company's original Skylake-X series of CPUs.
Kaby Lake-X will not be receiving a refresh, likely due to disappointing sales for Intel's entry-level X299 SKU. It seems like nobody wanted to buy a higher clocked Kaby Lake-S CPU with a more expensive motherboard with a limited feature set that lacks an integrated GPU.
Cascade Lake is reportedly delayed until 2019, creating space for a refreshed Skylake lineup within the CPU market.

HardOCP has also reported that Intel may be working on a high-TDP (275-300W) version of their 12 and 14-core Skylake-X CPUs, offering extreme levels of single-threaded and multi-threaded CPU performance, though these CPUs will no doubt be limited to select high-TDP capable motherboard designs.
