[VideoCardz] Intel preps dual-core i3-7360X for X299, but why? - Page 9

post #81 of 109
X299 is used for dumping the low end Xeons ( Bronze/Silver are 4C / 6C / 8C / 10C ) with some leftover mainstream chips. It would be nice if they were released at the same time on the same chipset.

You don't get it. Those chips were only initially supplied to OEMs to begin with who were supposed to make custom systems out of it. They instead turned around and sold bare chips on the market for approaching $1K. Do you really think AMD was selling factory OCed 83xx series chips to partners for $1K?

I think they were selling to OEMs for their official retail package MSRP in October for $320 and OEMs were trying to rake massive margins off scarcity of a chip that is really directed at enthusiasts with proper knowledge and cooling. That $600 markup alone on bare chips over AMD's official retail launch is enough to pay for a custom loop on the 9xxx series of chips.

Yes, I'm cynical, and will place the blame of an absurd price for a chip that wasn't actually supposed to hit retail markets outside OEMs on those same OEMs trying to shark cash their way in on 'easy' money from a non-retail chip.

Call it whatever you want, but the 9590's official MSRP was NEVER >$350.

Dunno if desperation, or just too greedy.

Also, Intel inside... You know whats outside.

"Intel is the aging, but not quite old, alpha male in this monkey colony. One that has become rather complacent and comfortable being the Alpha after being relatively unchallenged for the last 10+ years. The Alpha, Intel is accustomed to it being easy to stay in place as the king of the desktop CPU jungle canopy. But what's this? The longtime beta male AMD is coming about again. And he's being flirtatious and even impressing some of the consumer female monkeys. Intel is finally taking notice of AMD again. Now that the beta male AMD has taken a halfways decent step in the right direction towards being competitive and threatening Intel's dominance, he has a rash, panicked, and aggressive reaction. Intel is freaking out, running about screaming "Look at what we can do that you can't!?!?" and flinging poop everywhere. Poop, like this, an 'Enthusiast class X series' badged i3. No rhyme or reason other than flailing about and overreacting to AMD, Intel is desperately trying to assert his dominance with a grand spectacle of nonsense.... But... will the longtime beta AMD blink? Will he stand his ground? Will Intel's overreaction cost him?" ....fade to commercial....

That's all I got, but it seems like a valid metaphor to me.

i'm proud of you and your high moral standings. being able to stand up to such an evil corporation is the first step to enlightenment and becoming #woke

Wow, this absolutely reeks of desperation, and it's not even a very good attempt.

Like everyone else here, I can't think of a single reason that justifies the existence of this CPU. It's a 'meh' CPU at an absurd price point on a platform it has no business using. What was Intel's thought process when creating this thing?; "Hey guys, let's release an entry-level CPU that performs worse than our competitor's, at a higher price point, and stick it on our HEDT platform where it can't even utilize all the features of whatever motherboard it's on. That'll really wow them, I'm sure of it!"

I get that Intel obviously became complacent, and Ryzen/Threadripper really caught them with their pants down, but these panicked, rushed products are really only drawing more attention to that fact. It's honestly embarrassing. X299 will likely go down in history as Intel's biggest brain fart at this rate.
