    Yay, another news outlet sharing the very slide that indicatively shows how bad for money Intels previous lineup(s) were.

    It's a turnaround for Intel because they have crippled the sales of their previous lines for sale and resale but you can have a previous gen chip at half the price now!

    They're just turning the crank handle now, aren't they...

    Do they support ECC*? ThreadRipper does.
    *Of course they don't. Why would Intel give for free what Intel can make extra money on.

    I haven't seen anything on ECC support yet but STH said it supports up to 256GB of unbuffered memory, is this ECC Unbuffered or standard memory unbuffered, there is no clarification.

    Good. These prices will help to keep AMD honest in their leading position (and hopefully their Threadripper prices sensible).

    Edit: Always assuming you can actually buy one of these at the listed prices.

    Re: Intel launches 10th Gen X-Series HEDT processors

    if an x299 board only supports 128GB then is there a way a UEFI update can add support for 256GB?

    HAHAHA... "Relative performance per dollar" Haven't heard this from Intel in... forever. Can't wait for TR release, then let's see that chart again, and what happens to prices.

    unlocked** and the small print says "see disclaimer on slide 16". What is that disclaimer? I wouldn't be surprised if it says "Only unlocked for a fee for multinational corporations on signing an exclusive use of intel products for 10years agreement" or similar.

    Yup. So even Intel admit that Threadripper was far better bang-for-buck.

    And this is all thanks to? AMD.
    So, if you can, purchase AMD. Because, Intel lowering prices, it is just beginning.
    We need to go all the way. This is also for AMD vs Nvidia.
    Buy AMD whenev it is close call.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Re: Intel launches 10th Gen X-Series HEDT processors

    I said last year it wouldn't be until this year that we see the arena really heating up. And now it starts, Intel is fighting back.

    Computer is five years old now (Haswell-E), so due for an upgrade, but is running just fine. Hopefully in another year or two the space should be pretty competitive.

    Re: Intel launches 10th Gen X-Series HEDT processors

    Still can't match the old TR models on performance - remember when new intel CPUs had a flurry of world records being set in various benchmarks? It'll be fun to see them try and undercut AMD while using a monolithic die, there's only one way that can end and it's not good for intel. 64 core TR (/baby epyc) will be one hell of a rig.

    The PCIe lanes is nice, they've got a small advantage over TR (and nice to see them not fusing off so much functionality on most SKUs). I wonder if the 8 channel TR models will have the usual epyc 128 (PCIe 4) lanes?

    an "overclocking disclaimer" sounds like the usual "we won't guarantee overclocks"

    The problem here is the 72 lanes Intel quoted are the available IO lanes+PCH. Once the PCH has been separated out, the actual usable is 48 lanes, still a far cry lower than TR2.

    Frankly, unless you need Optane tiering, persistent DIMM or you really need Intel because the Software is heavily optimised for it, why would you buy these ranges of products?

    But if it's usual why devote a presentation slide to it? I'd be interested to see what that slide says.
