    Curious timing, what with AMD's Infinity Fabric Threadrippers on the horizon.

    Has Intel mentioned which future Xeons will be incorporating this technology? Will Skylake-EP generation have it? Or will it be Kaby Lake/Coffee Lake/CannonLake?

    I wonder if they've licensed something from AMD, I doubt it's infinity fabric directly, but some patents maybe. Perhaps this is where the rumours of Intel licencing AMD's graphics IP has come from?

    Unlikely as this mesh architecture was first used in Knights Landing IIRC.

    In other words, panic attack time. Time to finally acknowledge how outdated the Intel architecture is and how obsolete monolithic Intel silicon dies are.

    Just announce something, anything, even if its vapourware, like the i9 18-core. Gee, wonder when it will come out? LOL

    I remember reading about the development of mesh architecture 5 years ago, its great to see it finally making headway. posters like troll preter are clueless.
