So when Intel glues together two $10k CPUs and makes a giant one that isn't socketed and is only available in OEM servers, they achieve 23% higher performance at the cost of 60% higher power. I'm not sure why they would want to point that out to anyone. Seems like a very roundabout way to say they're still losing. Anandtech estimates those Xeon 9282's run $25k+ and I'm sure AMD would be happy to sell you the top Rome SKU for a quarter of that.
