Intel recently announced its Xeon W-3175W processor, a beastly workstation chip based on Skylake-SP with 28 physical cores and 56 threads of computing muscle. It's big, it's burly, and of course it's expensive—$2,999 when buying in bulk (that's the price per chip in 1,000-unit trays). What about an accompanying motherboard? ASUS launched its ROG Dominus Extreme, and as you might imagine, it's not cheap either. "The W-3175X normally runs at 3.2GHz with a Turbo frequency of 4.3GHz. However, during our overclocking exploits, we successfully pushed the CPU to a stable 6.5GHz on all cores using LN2. ROG is one of only two companies selected to work with Intel on motherboards for this monstrous... Read more...
Back in early October, Intel officially announced its Xeon W-3175X processor, which is SKU intended for high-end workstations. If you need a refresher, this is the 28-core beastly processor that Intel first displayed at Computex running at an impressive 5GHz. However, Intel was only able to achieve that massive clock with some heavy-duty cooling hardware in order to blunt some of the "awe" that was bestowed upon AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper family. Following its official October announcement, it now looks as though several retailers are ready to start selling the Xeon W-3175X. The processor has appeared at four European retailers (1, 2, 3, 4)... Read more...
Last year, Intel threw down the gauntlet with respect to HEDT processors with the Core X-Series. Available with up to 18 cores (36 threads), these chips provided a stiff challenge to AMD's first-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors (albeit with much higher MSRPs). Now with AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors making the rounds, Intel is ready to counters with its latest family of Core X-Series processors. There are seven processors in the new Core X-Series family, with the Core i7-9800X ($589) positioned as the entry-level offering and the Core i9-9980XE ($1,979) serving as the flagship. These new processors are built on a refresh of the existing Skylake-X architecture,... Read more...
