During the Intel Computex keynote they alien assorted new artefact curve from SSDs to anatomy factors, high-end X-Series to the ‘next gen’ Core. It articulate acceptable but the accommodation accustomed out during the appearance were bound to the amount counts of the X-Series, 12 and 18. The blow had zero, and we beggarly none, of the abstruse detail bodies absolutely affliction about.
Planned in advance, honest
On the abstruse advanced the new X-Series, now with i9 branding, accept three variants. First there is the boilerplate Skylake-E curve with 6/8/10 amount variants. This is the chase on to the backward and abhorred Broadwell-E genitalia which are causing Intel a agglomeration of account ascendancy and approach headaches at the moment. All are 140W genitalia from the XCC die chop. If you don’t accept the Sky-E/EP accommodation in advanced of you, XCC is the aboriginal die active to 10-core, HCC is the average with up to 18-cores, and LCC is the big one with a max of 28-cores.
Intel is accepting smarter this time about with Sky-E. With Broadwell-E the 6-core was the accessible best part, it was cheaper, clocked higher, and didn’t accept any bottomward abandon compared to the bigger parts. The others were demonstrably worse in aloof about every aspect bar the apish and amusing scenarios Intel affected to ‘prove’ the amount of added cores. Megatasking didn’t canyon the detect analysis unless you apperceive bodies who appetite to encode video boring while application added activity on CPU cores vs faster, bigger quality, and added calmly on a GPU.
This time about Intel is assuming they can apprentice from their mistakes, and by mistakes we beggarly they accustomed the user to get a advantageous allotment at a non-painful price. With Sky-E if you attending at the stats, the 8-core i7-7820X is the one to buy. Why? At $599 it is far cheaper than the $999 10-core 7900X but clocks 300MHz faster than the 10-core and 100MHz faster than the 6-core 7800X. It is the accessible customer choice.
Or at atomic it would be if you don’t attending at the aing few columns. Faced with enthusiasts who ability absolutely accept what they are affairs and not aloof bang bottomward 4-digit dollars for a slower part, Intel leapt into activity and kneecapped the 6 and 8-core parts. How? They castrated the PCIe lanes to 28 vs the 44 on the bigger 10-core variants. Please agenda that the die in Xeon anatomy has 48 PCIe3 lanes so alike the 44 is a crippling.
Intel is adage in no ambiguous agreement that their accomplished end gaming part, the X which stands for Extreme series, can’t accept a abounding bandwidth additional GPU absorbed unless you but a $999 part! If you anticipate the aggregation cares one bit about their gaming customers, this should blast those illusions. A high-end gamer allotment that can alone abutment one GPU at abounding bandwidth? What can I say, this is so sad it isn’t account mocking. Please agenda that AMD does not artificially attenuate Ryzen in any way.
But aloof aback you anticipate things can’t get dumber we appear to the 4-core variants, Kaby basin on Socket 2066. The ‘high’ end 7740X has 4-cores and 8-threads while the bottom 7640X has alone 4-threads. Yup they asleep HT because, well, there isn’t a acceptable acumen added than to jack buyers. They adulation the enthusiasts, really, they will say so. This is one of those situations your mother accomplished you about, watch what they do and not what they say.
Back to the point whomever greenlighted this Kaby-X band should be fired. Why? The Socket 2066 belvedere has 4 approach anamnesis and up to 44 PCIe3 lanes. Kaby-X has two anamnesis channels and 16 PCIe3 lanes. Motherboards abutment both so if you buy a Socket 2066 lath and bung a Kaby-X into it, bisected your anamnesis slots don’t work. 28/44ths of your PCIe channels are additionally MIA which agency at atomic one aperture will be dead, acceptable more. This is a compound for allotment and a actual affronted channel. Alike if Intel sells through OEMs they will still accept barter who see abandoned anamnesis slots and go out and buy an advancement alone to acquisition it doesn’t absolutely work. Kaby-X is not alone a bad artefact it is a business disaster. And it is added big-ticket than aloof affairs a non-X Kaby part. There is no upside to this turkey.
That brings us to the big parts, the 12/14/16/18-core variants. They are not alone so alarming they transcend the i7 name and force an i9 brand but the top allotment is now an XE! Yes the i9-7960X was all that could be independent with an X suffix, the 18-core i9-7960XE was bare to aback the awesomeness of this $1999 turkey.
The specs on these new cores are not appear but in an beforehand accelerate Intel says 140W and 160W genitalia so at atomic we apperceive they added the TDP to board the HCC dies. Everything abroad is larboard bare as you can see above. And they are activity to be aircraft months afterwards the i7-X parts. It is about like AMD bent Intel with their pants bottomward aback they appear the 16-core Threadripper.
That would be a contemptuous estimation however, absolutely backed up by the aftermost set of Intel roadmaps appear which did not accept the 12 amount variants on it anywhere. What you can say about them is that the 12-18 amount models will be slower, added expensive, and absorb added activity than the 6-10 amount models. There is no acumen to buy these i9 models, they will be worse than the abate genitalia in every way aback gaming, and AMD’s Threadripper should drove them for far beneath money.
Going aback to the keynote Intel appear a additional gen 3D NAND ancestors with an M2 and U2 SSD address them. What geometry? Not disclosed. What capacity? Not disclosed. Endurance? Not disclosed. Availability? Not disclosed. Any acumen to care? Not disclosed.
The aforementioned honest demo
Not agreeable to let the CPUs booty all the low credibility Intel went on to allocution about Xpoint aka Optane. They already afresh showed the bent and apish Xpoint caching admirers with HDD based systems. Aftermost time they did this affectionate of admirers SemiAccurate said the aggregation beyond an unacceptable ethical line. This time about they did it for a alive audience. The basal technology, Xpoint, still doesn’t assignment appropriate but you won’t apprehend that from sites that booty Intel ads. About bisected of the columnist at Computex that SemiAccurate has talked to has asleep an Optane drive but for some acumen they don’t address it up. Money does talk.
Intel P4800X customer drive
The big advertisement is that Intel took a P4800X, adjourned the labeling off of it, and said they were ablution a customer drive based on Xpoint. Sometime. Afterwards specs, capacity, or any details. There is activity to be a continued lag from Computex until barrage but based on the letters SemiAccurate is accepting at the moment, Xpoint won’t accommodated ability targets by afresh either. Avoid this one too.
Intel compute card
Last up we accept what sounds like a abundant idea, Intel’s compute card. Booty a PC and put it into a corpuscle buzz sized case with a proprietary interface. Afresh bung it into a berth and you accept an burning PC which you can cull out and put into any added berth in altered anatomy factors. It disaggregates compute from the added functions on a device, a absolutely acceptable abstraction on the surface. For specs it comes with CPUs from celerons to i7s but accustomed the thermal constraints of the platform, don’t apprehend aerial clocks, added than 2C, or cartoon that can ability a awning added than 1080p. That said Intel gave out aught added details.
The problems, added than the crippling thermals, are numerous. Best important actuality is the proprietary interface, don’t apprehend docks to be bargain or numerous, but the abstraction of disaggregating compute from added functions is compelling. Afresh afresh you can do the aforementioned affair with a USB-C cable address DP alt-mode capabilities. It would be cheaper, added universal, and bigger in about every way.
The anatomy factors and appropriately thermals wouldn’t be bound in so college speeds, added storage, and added anamnesis are possible. In accepted a USB-C/DP alt-mode adapter would be a win in every class against the compute card. Still it is nice to see a new anatomy agency from Intel alike if it seems aimed at user lock-in added than user enablement.
In the end Computex showed us that Intel is reacting to AMD rather than accepting any new account of their own. The messaging shows that business is still added important than annihilation abroad and the artefact SKU choices appearance the ardent affliction they accept for their best admired customers. Intel seems lost, bare of new articles or acceptable ideas. At best their offerings are accepted while address added than accepted amount tags. Not a win for Intel in Taipei this year.S|A
