    How does it make sense to have no proper mount retainer thing for the cpu?

    The max temps being over 100c..is that normal for these high end Xeons ? Because that seems bonkers.

    Big workstation Xeons have always kicked out a lot of heat, but that does seem a bit high for a working temperature.

    Those are some insane temperatures to be dealing with. Right on the thermal limit...

    In my humble opinion, 107 degrees is at least 8 over the limit.

    In my humble opinion, I do believe you are correct good sir!

    This chip has a thermal limit of 120 degrees.

    I guess when a CPU is pulling power that can be measured in horsepower (it can pull 500W which is about 0.7hp to save you looking that up ) you need that.

    Re: Intel Xeon W-3175X processor released, costs $2,999

    DWU, did they change the physical design of the CPU to reduce the likelihood of damage from heat? The point of a 95°c limit is to protect the hardware, yes? Arbitrarily deciding to bend the rules and push the maximum temp up seems.. not very $3000 ish.

    iirc the thermal limits tend to be defined by the junction temperature, which I assume is the point where there's a risk of the die physically separating from the substrate due to the solder softening. That strikes me as something that they could change fairly easily just by using a different composition of solder.

    I can remember when Intel made chips that ran cool, were reasonably priced, and FAST. This chip is like advertising your failure to innovate, and frankly taking your customers for fools.
    What has happened to Chipzilla??

    Sorry, but which fast and reasonably priced processor are you thinking of? The fastest chips Intel make have always been stupidly expensive.

    At least this processor is hot running, expensive but stupidly fast. During the Pentium 4 fiasco they made hot running, expensive and very mediocre chips.

    The highest performing chips have always been expensive and power-hungry. You want fast and cool running, buy a T-spec Core i, which are 35W versions and aren't really that much slower. Or get one with fewer cores, since most people don't really need more than 4 anyway.

    Intel are a manufacturing company first and foremost. If their packaging and foundry guys are told to make something that can withstand 120C, I have every confidence that they can do it.

    I will conveniently ignore the original Pentium III 1GHz model which they rushed out as basically a factory overclocked part which reviewers found didn't actually work, that was a long time ago and a consumer part. If they trashed the Xeon brand with something that lame it would do considerable damage to their company so I would expect them to get this right.

    But can you not remember back to the P4 days when Intel made chips which ran hot, were unreasonably priced, and SLOW?

    I'm assuming these come with the standard 3 year warranty, if temperature is related to the rate of degradation i wonder how much 120 degrees nibbles into the expected lifetime.
