And I thought my i7-7820X was power hungry. Does the ring bus architecture cause any issues with 10 cores (traditionally Intel utilised the mesh architecture for higher core parts)? Wouldn't effect the gaming but could cause a few issues (increased core to core latencies) in production workloads?
Of course X299 offers a little more than just opportunities to have a high core count processor (more PCIe lanes, AVX512 etc) so whilst it isn't pretty to see the 10980XE being pushed by its little cousin, it had already been previously schooled by Threadripper (and to some extent Ryzen 3950X) from AMD.
