Isn't Intel going with large numbers of Golden Cove cores with Sapphire Rapids? I may be wrong, but weren't there rumors of 14, 28, 42, and 56 Golden Cove cores. That means HEDT chips could be made on the fully functioning 14 core version or a partially functioning 28 core version.Which means that going for higher core counts with Golden Cove could be problematic, especially in their target market. But their competition is able to add up to 16c in consumer CPUs and get good perf/watt doing so. Intel needs to be able to do the same.
