    So it's a port of existing Cascade Lake to the new socket and platform originally intended for 10nm Ice Lake?

    Are the high core count chips still glued together dies that only exist in a special platform that can handle the power delivery for massive 250-400W TDP? That would be partitioned and disjointed indeed.

        By the way Cooper-Lake is a misspelling, the CPUs are called Copper-Lake as it will need tons of Copper to get the current to and the heat from this CPUs

          Shoving 56 cores into a single package at 14nm (even if its 14nm+++, as Intel marketing calls it) that dissipates 350+w is one giant package that will be glued to one giant heat-sink. In many ways 4 way Xeon 82xx makes far more sense.
          Something tells me this CPU will be limited to 3U and above and most server vendors will simply ignore this CPU and limit themselves to the 28 core parts.

          Hopefully AMD will be able to take advantage of Intel's lackluster 10nm (and below) performance in the last two years and carve a major market share for themselves.
          (Like they did in the AMD Opteron days)
