    Phoronix: Intel Core i9 7980XE Linux Benchmarks: 18 Core / 36 Threads For $1999 USD

    Besides the embargo expiring this morning on the Intel Core i9 7960X, the Core i9 7980XE Extreme Edition processor is also now fair game. Here is our look at the Linux performance for this 18 core / 36 thread processor within a single 165 Watt package.

    Could you add a performance/dollar chart too?

      Intel wouldn't want bad light on their newest overpriced overreaction..

        How to determine the peeks in consumption at which test they occurred?

          It might be the new absolute performance king, but definitely not in the perf/dollar category. Damn, 2k, I wouldn't spend that much.

            Indeed, that would be interesting. It appears that the 7980XE would even fall significantly behind the 7980X in there...

              And the 2k is just for the CPU and you still don't get ECC memory support for that money. With the Ryzen thermal monitoring now in place it might be interesting to see how would a decently overclocked TR measure up against the Intel competition.

                2K - this must be a joke.
                Considering that you will also pay additional because it adds more to your electricity bill...

                It's 2K + the most power draw.

                  These processors have a stupid amount of power. It's just amazing how many cores they pack in these, though you sure as hell pay for the cores you get. Seems like a bridge between the more mainstream i7 and Xeon processors.

                    Not interesting at all, overpriced, no ECC, then there are the ongoing security issues with their Intel management engine blob and I don't need a new heater 😂
