The unique Xeon W-3175X model became famous thanks to the same dramatic demonstration on stage alongside a unit Cooling Commercial - will likely be priced at $ 3,900 when officially launched
Intel's main response to the leading Threadripper 2000 processors is approaching launch, it appears, with a number of European online stores To the dreaded Xeon W-3175X.
The processor that has 28 processing cores, the largest number it offers Intel Today, in all areas and categories, it is designed for highly advanced professional workstations based on the LGA3647 chassis of the server world, with a massive 255 Watt enclosure, and of course an open product and acceleration support that does not exist in any processor Xeon (With the potential to boost the unit's power consumption beyond the kWh in extreme situations).
The Xeon W-3175X Enjoy six channels of memories DDR4 With 2,666MHz basic speed and maximum 512GB (and error correction), 3 L38.5 cache, 48 3.0 PCI-Express only from the processor to be used for connection graphic cards Or means storage Advanced NVMe standard - and operating frequencies between 3.1GHz as base for all cores to maximum 4.3GHz for Core The unit is supposed to enable it to compete and probably win most of theXeon The others.
Four different stores that viewed initial pages for the Xeon W-3175X provided us with price levels equivalent to about $ 3,900 to almost $ 5,000, not including VAT - so if we rely on this information and a little optimism we can assume that the formidable model will rise About 2 times The Core i9-9980XE is the core of the 18 cores, Or slightly less than 4,000 dollars in Uncle Sam's land.
Compared To the leading ThreadRipper 2990WX Of the big competitor, which includes 32 physical processing cores at an official price of $ 1,800 "only", the answer of Intel It will be disproportionately expensive - but on the other hand it's hard to ignore that the apparent price for the 3175X is also about $ 3,000 or $ 4,000 lower than the price of the most accessible Xeon processor currently offered with the same amount of cores. For a particular layer of consumers who are interested in the maximum number of processing cores and only from the product of Intel, This special model that combines the home world with the world of servers may be a very significant line.
We hope to receive all the details that are officially missing as soon as possible.
