OK lets get this out in the open right away, Intel’s Ice Lake-SP CPU is a dog, it loses at just about everything but a few benchmarks that heavily use it’s already deprecated AI instructions. For anything real world it is badly outclassed by both AMD’s and Intel’s own offerings, at times by multiples not percentages. Intel should simply not launch it, the damage it will do to their reputation, customer relations, and investor confidence far outweigh the meager marketing halo they will attempt to grab.
Last week we told you about the clocks for Ice Lake-SP, now lets take a deeper look at how well it will perform.
Not a subscriber, so I can't see the numbers... But that's a pretty bold headline. I dread to think how much Ice Lake has been neutered to get it out the door.
