Remember Intel’s 28-core Xeon W-3175X that we talked about earlier this year? Well it looks like it has been listed at a few different retailers in Europe, with prices ranging in around the $4000 mark! These prices have not stabilized just yet as there are a limited number of these parts available currently.
The Xeon W-3175X is build on Intel’s 14nm++ manufacturing process and has 28 cores and 56 threads with HyperThreading. The base clock is 3.1 GHz and it boosts up to 4.3 GHz, has support for hexa-channel DDR4 and offers 44 PCIe lanes. The TDP of the chip is 255 W.
Comparatively AMD has their Threadripper 2990WX with 32 cores and 64 threads, quad-channel DDR4 support, 64 PCIe lanes, and a TDP of 250W for only $1799.
Besides the cost of the Xeon W-3175X you also have to factor in the cost of the platform, with the LGA3647 motherboard, which have some of the most insane power delivery components we’ve seen.
