Intel Core i9-7980XE 18 Core HEDT CPU Review

The flagship model of the latest Intel range - the i9-7980XE - has finally arrived and we see how it compares to the similarly high end AMD Threadripper.

God damn. I should hope this thing is good, considering it costs 2.5 times what the Threadripper costs here in Germany.

That is a really impressive CPU. It exceeds what I thought it would be. It's actually slightly more efficient than the 1950X as well, and with its overclocking headroom it is definitely the most powerful CPU to get. I can't wait to see builds with it installed.

Have you seen the prices for pre binned Skylake X's on OverclockersUK??

The 7980XE pre binned to 4.6 GHz is £2199.95 that's near on £400 over the regular price for a non binned 7080XE which are £1799.99

Intel seem to have taken "Shut up and give me your money" as a business model on these.

I dont think its intel who is binning them. I may be wrong but its normally an aftermarket place and they add $$4 to the price for their time and guarantee.

No point getting a lotto ticket for me as I couldn't win a free trip to the loo, even if I had the money I still don't know if I'd buy one of these
