    So has there been any further leaks then from the 2nd May Intel's closed door press meeting on x299 platform ?

    Idling at 70? That seems quite excessive.
    Sounds like the CPU is not dropping down to idle conditions?

    WTF is wrong with the marketing team? This is unseemly, naming such a product after "oooh shiny." It's tasteless somehow

    I don't get the complaint. This is a pretty common naming structure for tiers of products. It seems lot simpler and more intuitive than what existed before.

    You must hate power supply efficiency ratings and most rewards programs.

    I do, yes. I wish they'd just list the peak and guaranteed minimum efficiency.

    Is this editor an idiot?
    It is illegal to sell Engineering Sample / Inhouse / Internal distribution CPU's without the expressed permission from Intel.

    Infact Intel asks their partners when they are done with the cpu, that they destroy it, and remove it from public circulation.
    That is why i have killed so many cpu's back when i was active, because my sponsor told me to destroy them when i was done.

    Ive known quite a bit of people who have gotten emails from intel security, requesting the illegally obtained cpu back or they will pursue legal on them.

    Infact even my sponsor has asked me to return a couple of the cpu's back because intel wanted them back to trace where the leak was coming from.

    Yea, because "Xeon E7-8891 v4" is so much more professional and easy to remember.

    The PC Gaming Show is returning to E3 2017
    Intel joins our E3 showcase of new games and hardware, hosted by Sean 'Day9' Plott.

    www.pcgamer.com/the-pc-gaming-show-is-returning-to-e3-2017/?utm_content=bufferc9818&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=buffer-pcgamertw

    So this is where they will launch Core X (Basin Falls). Hopefully Intel showcases the capabilities of the CPUs (Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X) and platform for gaming. :)

    And here's Core™ i5-8250U, 1.6 GHz (base).

    https://gfxbench.com/device.jsp?ben...l&hwtype=iGPU&hwname=Intel(R)+HD+Graphics+620

    I wonder where CFL-U with Iris (4+3e) fits in their product stack. If KBL-R is 8X50, then CNL-U might be 8X00. New brand?

    By the way, there's a Coffee Lake GFXBench entry as well:

    Just imagine i7 i5 and i3 each with these metal levels.

    You'd have i7 Bronze, i7 Silver, i7 Gold, and i7 Platinum and you'd know instantly which was the fastest chip and how they relate.

    Core X Platinum (12C/24T), Core X Gold (8C/16T, 10C/20T), Core X Silver (6C/12T HEDT), Core X Bronze (KBL-X).

    Seems straight forward enough. E7 is the top tier Xeon (compare E3/E5/E7 to i3, i5, i7), 8000 series means multisockets, v4 means Broadwell uarch.

    That is the problem. 8000 means (a) more sockets possible, (b) much more cache, (c) faster bus speeds and (d) turbo boost 2.0. You only mentioned one of the differences.

    So, someone with a 4 CPU server may only be looking at the E7-4820 v4 which has 10 cores and 20 threads. But, that person may be better suited with four of the E7-8891 v4 (which also has 10 cores and 20 threads) because of nearly triple the cache. But Intel was finding that people weren't considering the 8 CPU series enough for 4 CPU servers.

    Most people don't buy these chips, businesses do.

    I am not a business, I do not care... what is the interest in these chips, spreadsheets? Server farm? Or just simple side discussion..?
