    hmmmm, intel showing off such a 28 core monster can only mean that AMD indeed plans to up the core count on the TR2 chips. could mean that they would either release a 24 core TR2 based on semi-defective, but high clocking EPYC skus or theyd just bin already existing EPYCs on 12nm and clock them as high as possible with 32 cores.

    BUT (and a BIG BUT(T) at that! :p)

    can u imagine how FREAKISHLY expensive such a 28 core chip would be? lets take the jump from last gen as an example:

    6950X when introduced had an MSRP of around 1700 USD. thats 170 USD per core. in comes the 7980XE at around 2000 USD, which equates to 111 USD per core. thats a price decrease of around 35%. so if intel continues this with the 28 core chip, we will be looking at around 72-73 USD per core = 2033 USD.

    WELP! i didnt expect this! o_O :eek: :D turns out they could actually offer this 28 core monster at the same MSRP as the current 7980XE... dayum! but would they do that? hmmm.....

    I'm 100% sure they will charge quite stiff prices if AMD can't compete with next Ryzen Threadripper. But even without competition from AMD this one won't be cheap:D

    guys, u know... im actually getting sweaty hands and my heart is racing. why u ask? because i am reading computex news LOL (thats what i call being a PC hardware tech nerd :D :rolleyes:)

    32 core TR2, nextgen Nvidia GPUs end of july, 28 core intel monstrosity oced to 5 ghz, 32 GB sodimms with Samsung chips, nextgen Noctua D-type cpu air cooler.... OH GAWD! please someone donate me 10k so i can built a proper system this year!!!!! :D:D:D:p

    Wait for next year if going TR3!!! This year we might get PCIe 4.0, but with the delay in seeing boards with it AND with PCIe 5.0 being published next year, you might have a little more future proof board. Plus, that 32 core count could grow. Also hoping for an AM4+ and TR4+ which supports either additional PCIe lanes or memory channels at those levels. Granted, dreams at the moment, but a man can dream!

    haha i couldnt even afford a laptop upgrade atm, let alone a brand spanking new HEDT desktop system :p still, excited AF about the tech progress :) imagine computex without AMD having come back into the performance CPU biz! we would MAYBE have gotten the 7920X out of Intel, but thats about it....
