AMD demonstrates 32-core new gen (Threadripper CPU), Intel creates headlines with imaginary 28-core CPU!


What’s the rumor all about?


Let us have a detailed view of what these two powerbombs have to reveal.   


At this year’s Computex, AMD dropped a bomb by revealing its all-new 32-core Threadripper CPU, trying to seize all the attention from AMD, Intel created a diversion by showcasing imaginary Cinebench numbers from a rumored 28-core 5GHz CPU that’s not even an actual product.

After such demanding week at Computex 2018, if we look back at the event, there were not many big declarations, but possibly one of the most awaited and exciting revelation was the upcoming 32-core, 64-thread Threadripper 2nd-gen CPU that is to be expected in a few months.

Intel’s announcement?

Just a day before AMD’s press event at Taipei, Intel called out and announced its imaginary 28-core CPU processing at 5 GHz on each core, creating headlines all over the internet.   

After which it seems that Intel was pointing towards a future product, that’s what they had to say about the product, but then it's all about how things work in the real world, people believe in what they see not on rumors.

It’s worth knowing about this CPU and Intel’s declaration as it shows the difference between AMD and Intel’s current top of the line desktop systems. While one organization is just talking the other one is all set to deliver the actual consumer hardware. Here Intel seems to demonstrate ridiculous garbage that serves no purpose other than creating headlines.

Intel 28 core

So, let us look back at Intel’s initial exposure of its 28-core 5GHz CPU. Intel in their Computex 2018 keynote demonstrated this massive CPU running at 5 GHz on all 28 cores, and they also figured out ways to run a Cinebench multi-threaded process producing an appropriately huge score.

People went insane about this, making headlines everywhere, which is exactly what Intel planned on doing, knowing very well indeed that AMD would be overshadowing them with its 32-core Threadripper the next day.

The News!

Initially, when the news came out, we were quite confused about how exactly Intel succeeded to get the 28-core CPU running all cores at 5 GHz.

It can never be a consumer product, as it was never meant to reach the market, at least not at the frequencies Intel showcased it on stage.

Intel did mention that the CPU demonstrated was a prototype and would be launched in Q4, but we will get to that later.

After Intel's exhibit, different outlets like Paul's Hardware headed toward the Gigabyte suite and uncovered the Intel’s test system in front of the audience.

Red Flag!

Also, the CPU is referred to is cooled utilizing an enormous air conditioning system that is bringing the liquid cooling technology to sub-encompassing levels. That is warning number one.

Attachments being used…

At this point, if you take a glimpse at the motherboard they use. It's a monstrous undertaking motherboard utilizing the LGA3647 socket, which is typically used for Intel's best end Xeon processors.

Also, at the highest point of the board is an incredible 28-stage (or something like that) VRM arrangement with a colossal heatsink and extra cooling, plainly equipped for conveying gigantic measures of capacity to this model CPU. That is warning number two.

Now when you consolidate the spots it ends up evident this is just the current best end Xeon processor (like the $10,000 28-center Xeon Platinum 8180), tossed into a load up fit for extraordinary power conveyance, joined to exotic cooling, at the same time overclocked to without a doubt the most extreme.

Probably this Xeon chip was likewise binned to an absurd degree with the end goal that a 5 GHz all-center overclock could be accomplished.

Reality Revealed: The insight.

Later on, Intel affirmed to AnandTech that the exhibit was utilizing an overclocked CPU and was expected as an overclocking demo… not that the company mentioned that on stage.

Overclocking attempts using exotic cooling systems are breathtaking and something we see tech geeks doing all the time, yet it's entirely deceitful to state this CPU is going to the market in Q4.

There is definitely no chance we're getting a 5 GHz 28-core CPU as either a desktop system or server part.

Possibly we'll get a 28-core CPU that hits 5 GHz as a single core Turbo frequency. However, 5 GHz all-core when the present flagship Xeon Platinum 8180 tops out at 3.2 GHz all-center? No doubt that is not happening.

What Intel did at Computex is what might as well be called an i7-8700K is a 7 GHz CPU.

Without a doubt, it can hit an overclocked speed of 7 GHz on a high-end top of the line motherboards with a powerful cooling system like LN2, yet no user purchasing an 8700K is achieving 7 GHz in regular situations.

They will have the capacity to overclock it over Intel's evaluated details, yet not to the extremes conceivable with chillers darted on to the CPU.

This is an obvious difference to AMD's declaration for Threadripper 2. Their 32-core CPU is a genuine item, and it's probably coming to market in August.

It will be accessible for buyers, they will have the capacity to place it in existing X399 motherboards, and they'll have the capacity to accomplish the execution AMD presented in front of the audience.

AMD's demo had the CPU timed at a 3.0 GHz base and 3.4 GHz all-core boost, running on air cooling with the Wraith Ripper.


That is a sensible design for tech geeks and workstation users of AMD's Threadripper platform.

The 32-core CPU model had a TDP of 250W, while Intel's 5 GHz 28-core CPU could without much of a stretch have been 500W, or even 1 kW with the overclock speed they were running on.

It's not even in a similar ballpark:

AMD's Threadripper 2 dispatch was an impression of the real world; a genuine CPU with genuine specs that you will have the capacity to buy. Intel's 5 GHz, 28-core CPU exhibit, was unreal.

Additionally, this is where things currently sit with Intel and AMD’s HEDT platforms. AMD had the ability to push up to 32 cores with Threadripper 2 on the current TR4 attachment and X399 stage.

All things considered;

AMD as of now have 32-core epic CPUs available, so it wasn't precisely troublesome for them to convey that innovation over to HEDT.

They didn't have to reconsider anything: they basically increased the number of dynamic passes on Threadripper from 2 to 4 - and blast - there's a 32-core desktop CPU.

AMD's pass on approach to the Infinity Fabric interconnect makes this hop from 16 to 32 cores clear; their advancement to take a shot at the Infinity Fabric is currently proving to be fruitful, ready for picking as staggeringly elite desktop CPUs.

Then again, Intel for all intents and purposes has their situation is dire on the HEDT section.

Their best end Core i9-7980XE pushes 18 cores on the X299 and LGA2011 platform, stretching that platform as far as possible concerning core count.

Their server chips top out at only 28 cores in a single go, massive die with low yields, on a totally extraordinary attachment and platform, at costs exceeding $8,000.

In the competition to Threadripper 2, Intel would be forced to tear out the LGA3647 socket from their Xeon server line and push it into the top of the line high-end desktop motherboards. Then take their super-costly Xeon 28-core chip and possibly push clocks even higher, all while staying focused on estimating.

But then, will they do it? Or on the other hand, do they need to?

Last year when Intel responded to Ryzen by offering competitive processors across the board, we were pleasantly surprised, but also, we are curious to know what Intel does with their HEDT line by the end of this year.

Whatever it is their “5 GHz 28-core” CPU really moves toward becoming for purchasers, we don't anticipate that it will approach what they exhibited at Computex.

Until further notice, unmistakably Intel needed to make a redirection and take away some of AMD's thunder a day before, demonstrating Cinebench numbers so ludicrous that Threadripper 2nd-gen didn't look as threatening.

But then again, when the time comes, and only one of the two companies delivers the goods you can actually buy, then you’ll be able to vote with your wallet.

We can't say we loved the misleading demo, but hello, the wars of CPUs are back, and that is just incredible news for buyers.
