    Conclusion:

    <But then again, if you're looking at the Intel Core i9-7980XE and price is a concern, you're entirely missing the point.

    This is a premium product. Extremely intensive cherry picking of the very best of Intel's silicon yield gives a product which runs at relatively low power, low temperatures, and can be overclocked very heavily without requiring anything like the voltages you might expect for such a core heavy processor. We achieved about the best we could expect on our setup without needing to go over 1.2v on the vCore. Remember we're using just about the base possible motherboard and some middle-of-the-road memory to achieve our results.

    It is something of a cliché to use cars as comparisons, but it is difficult to look at the results we attained from the i9-7980XE and not come away with the words "Rolls Royce" ringing in our ears. But, the performance is mind-blowing too, whether at stock or overclocked.

    If you demand the very best and will settle for nothing less, and have the budget necessary to surround the i9-7980XE with suitably high-end parts throughout your build, then clearly this is the processor for you.

    For the rest of us for whom a quad-core CPU is more befitting our financial status then only one recourse is possible; Dear Santa...>

    Intel Arbitrarily Breaks Coffee Lake Compatibility With Z270 Forcing Users To Buy New Z370 Motherboards-Wccftech.com

    Intel Representative via VCZ
    "Getting the max out of 6 core processor <required> changes to our motherboards, specifically to provide improved power delivery to new 6-core processors.

    We also took the opportunity to improve our overclocking capabilities by improving the package power delivery to the CPU. This is an another change that <required> motherboard changes.

    We increased memory bandwidth on processor up to 2666 MHz that <required> another improvement on the motherboard layout."


    Why This Makes No Sense
    "Truth be told the only apparent reason Intel is breaking compatibility with existing motherboards is that they’re simply after your money. Intel is a company trying to make a buck after all. If you’re upgrading to Coffee Lake from Broadwell or an older processor this doesn’t really affect you." @Eurocom Support
