They want to be careful not to price it too cheap.True but >$1700 is still pretty high if you want to sell actual volume.
Otherwise they'll undercut their pukka Opteron line.
This X399 will have to have some limitations relative to Opteron. Its a delicate balancing act.
It is my understanding that this will be based on the SP3 socket and is indeed essentially a rebadge of the 16C Opteron (which is supposed to come in 16C and 32C variants).Intel HEDT CPUs are identical to their Xeon parts. This hypothetical Ryzen chip is not a Naples reject it is a separate design, an MCM of 2x Ryzen so not a complete new design but sure there is some work involved to get it up and running,
Possibly. But def not as low as $700 for 12C and $1000 for 16C.My guess is the top 16-core version will slot it at $1300. A bit more than 2x 1800x but not too much to prefer 2x1800x rigs over this. The slowest 16-core will then be $999 and fastest 12-core obviously less probably $849.
