as horrible as this product is , i still want a 10980xe as an upgrade from my existing 9900x. there is no AMD option if i want high core count with huge ram capacity in an itx form factor. unless 32GB rgb sticks are more readily available. that said i've already invested way too far into x299 since skylake x first launched.
Reviews for the new Cascade Lake-X processors are set to go live today. We are delaying ours by a few hours, until the embargo for AMD’s new Threadripper processors also lifts. Not only is it odd to have both companies launch their HEDT products on the same day, but originally they were set to launch at the same time – Intel since moved their launch forward a few hours, but we’re going to wait until AMD’s embargo has also been lifted so we can provide graphs with all the CPUs together in their respective reviews.
