I feel temptation to replace my 7940x for 10980x... but the price is so steep for just 4 more cores and maybe somewhat better clocks, oh well - i am running mine at 4,1GHz all-core, cause at just 4,3 the temps under sustained load go beyond 95C on some cores...which i am not OK with. I guess things might be better with Cascade-Lake, being new revision, refined process node... but still i suppose waiting and saving for another year or 2 for 10nm or whatever AMD competition at the time would be better course of action.

B&H Photo now listing "Expected Availability: Mid Feb. 2020" Of course this is just one retail outlet.

However to me it is a bit depressing that this seems to have been yet another paper launch. What boggles me is how they initially 'delayed it until Nov 25th' supposedly because they wanted to maybe consider how the ThreadRippers were going to price and compare and then perhaps tweak the price or w.e and still launch them. But I see no availability through any major retail outlet, and those that list them have no availability estimate whatsoever. Was the truth more akin to them just wanting to see how many pre-orders are made just make/output solely that amount seeing as they wont be able to compete in most things against Ryzen3/TR3 and hope to only produce just the quantity that met initial demand and bail from the CL-X series immediately? Or am i reading too much into it and it might just be a symptom of lack of production capacity in general in the sector and specifically Intel 14nm?

Whatever the case it sucks to have mobo and ram ready and waiting for a CPU for over 3 months after "launch". Of course I am only to blame but SMH at you intel, SMH...

I think at this point Intel's only hope is CPU Jesus Jim Keller. AMD have passed them far too quickly and easily this generation. The performance gap between AMD and Intel is going to get big next year and will be a massive chasm in 2022.

Crazy times after such a long time of Intel dominance, kind of reminds me of Apple surging past Nokia.

Yup - just posted this in another thread. I don't even know where to begin. I can't believe a huge company like Intel is doing this; really disappointed with them.



I think I'm going to just return everything - I'm in the same boat, I have the RAM, MoBo, NVMe SSDs, HDDs ready to go but no CPU.

It's painful to watch this unfold. Even with all of the praise for AMD right now, I was ready to grab a 10980 for this new build that I was hoping to get completed before the end of the year. I have everything sitting here ready to go except for the MB and CPU, and I almost bought the MB too. Sadly, the alternative of a 3960 isn't in stock anywhere either, so all of this equipment sits collecting dust.

Any technical/performance downsides to getting a 10980 (or any CLX) and turning it down to say 8 cores to get a higher overclock and have the cache/pcie-lanes/less heat etc.. ?

Considering this over the neutered mainstream cpu's.

Its mesh architecture is higher latency than the ring bug of the 8 core mainstream parts.
