Yah ok

I've seen algorithmic trading done with threadRipper for the first time this year

The xmas party was huge.
No details, no specifics, just a rehash of a single vague use case and a typical unproven anecdote.

Yah ok.

It's frustrating when the shoe is on the other foot isn't it? You can't give too much detail or risk divulging trade secrets.

I'd assume high freq trading. Traders will shell out top dollar to shave milliseconds off a trade.

Anandtech updated the article with additional comment from Intel

Quote:
Update 1/17: Intel has sent us a second comment, confirming its existance, the target market, and the reasons for the auction:

“The Intel® Core™ i9-9990XE is designed specifically for the financial services industry because of specific customer requirements. Because the Intel® Core™ i9-9990XE was built with unique specifications and high frequency to meet the workload needs of this targeted industry, it can only be produced in limited quantities and will not be broadly made available. The part will be offered through an auction to ensure fairness in supply distribution.” – Intel spokesperson

HFT here means "high frequency trading". It's a financial business scheme where you try to make money out of the smallest changes happening at a stock exchange, foreign exchange, etc. (anything that can be traded). Programs are tracking the changes in a stock or other financial products. They then buy and sell within a split-second trying to make a profit. This happens automatically, humans are only involved in programming the machine and then watching it and hitting some emergency button if things go out of control and it starts losing billions of $ suddenly. The businesses that try to make money this way seem to go to extremes, they worry about anything that influences latency. The ones that can get their orders in faster at the exchange can use their speed to make more money than the competition.

It's the one thing they have a leg up on against AMD, do you really think Intel will just give it up like that?

yeah when its no longer effective, e.g. AMD's are supposedly at 5Ghz too.
why do you think they got off Netburst and not just solve the clock speed barrier?

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Well, not much they can do when their new architecture is stuck with 10nm, and we all know the troubles they had with it.

The 5GHz Ryzen is still a rumor at this point. IF it turns out it's not an "Intel 28-core 5GHz" then yes ok Intel is heading into some serious trouble. However, I'm more realistic and believe Zen2 will top out somewhere around 4.5-4.7, so Intel will still win the jiggahertz (and hence ST speed) war this time around.

Personally, as long as what AMD demoed at CES can reach 4.5 at non-crazy volts and is priced right (hopefully <$330), it's pretty much a 100% buy for me. Yeah sure the 9900K might get me an extra 10-15% performance in ST-limited scenarios, but that's most definitely not worth an extra $200. That's like an extra 1TB 860 Evo right there I could put to good use with that money.
