    175w Christ, makes sense though for 4 / 4.5 GHz on 10 core, Intel must be scared on AMD if they are pushing chips this hard, without Ryzen this would have been a 3.4 / 3.9 odd GHz 140w chip

    Makes sense, Intel can't compete on treads per dollar or performance bang for buck so only option is to push MHz to heights Ryzen can't go but at the cost of TDP.

    Sounds like they just clocked it up due to AMD's stuff, and figured nobody would blink over 175w. If this info is correct, I'd say Intel is pretty nervous. Too bad AMD's bottom line doesn't show that they are gaining anything from this yet.

    High megahertz power hungry chip, sounds like netburst again. I am looking forward to BTX motherboards making a comeback...

    Intel, selling old overclocked CPUs as new ones... Let AMD keep the pressure on.

    175W...TF!
    Intel you are ridiculing yourself.

    Not sure if sarcasm was detected or not.

    I am looking forward to how AMD's 16C CPU's will stack up. Hopefully Ryzen will have some evolutions by then to tempt me more.

    I guess for workstation users a high TDP isnt such an issue. Think i'd still go for the ripper if it were me.

    Definitely detected

    It just seems very odd to me that we are moving back to very high power systems as the drive recently have been to make everything consume less. I guess we are reaching the limits of the core architechture in terms of performance returns vs power.

    Before the workstation argument comes into play, i use a highly parallel workstation at work and have what would appear to be the eqivalent at home (12+HT @2.4ghx vs 6+HT @ 4.5ghz) and there are very few workloads which i use in which the slower highly parallelised computer is slower than the faster lower core count faster PC. Unless the software is poorly optomised that is, but even this is much better now than 3-4 years ago. Although that being said i dont game on the machine at work.

    Re: Intel Core i9-7900X Skylake X processor spotted in database

    I guess the question is do you get lower power draw when you're not using all of the power. Or more likely, what's the overhead you pay for having that power available when you need it.
