Intel finally admits that their 28-core CPU demo was overclocked - confusing marketin

Intel's hasn't explained anything about their 28-core CPU well. They "forgot" to mention that the system was overclocked and that the PC required an industrial liquid cooler to function.



Read more about Intel admission that their 28-core CPU demo was overclocked.

It's honestly like April Fool's day in bloody June.

If you even stopped for one second to think about the logistics? it's close to impossible. I don't mean you with that, Mark, but you would need a 360 rad just to cool the CPU.

I don't see the big deal, we all knew the CPU would be overclocked and you need water to do it justice.

I would use a lot more than that just to be safe.

My 7980XE uses 3 x 480mm rads because that was what happened to be in the system I used, having said that the CPU does run quite cool when oced.


The point with this 28 core intel CPU is it will have special requirements but that won't bother anyone who wants to buy one.

Word of caution, mesh on the latest intel CPUs is crap when it comes to driving GPUs, far better to get a 8700k.

I read somewhere that the water cooling unit consumes over 1000 watts and the mobo had a 1300 watt PSU. 2300 watts!
Imagine adding an SLI setup on top of that!
This was all a "Hey look we not falling behind cos we have this unworkable concept"
I want to put a threadripper 2 on that cooling system and see what happens

Thing is this thing required a chiller to reach sub ambient temps to be able to overclock, That's not looking good IMO.

Would be interesting to see how far it can be clocked on water without reaching insane temps though.

Yup it will guzzle leccy. Plus it will also generate a ton of heat because in principle it is the same as a AC unit. And those things get hot as heck on one side.

It was really daft of Intel to do this. It literally took even the slowest of reporters about two hours to realise that Intel had pulled the wool over their eyes.

Pointless willy waving is pointless.

I see Intel is continuing the knee jerk reaction crap from last years show.

I cant imagine anyone not automatically assuming it was a 5ghz demo. If you thought you could get a stock clocked 5ghz 28 core today you must not have ever tried to overclock an i9. I personally thought it was a great demo, with a 2.7ghz base clock the max all core boost will probably be 3.4ghz or so, I have not looked up the Xeon counterpart but maybe expect 100-200mhz over that.

Great demo but misleading to non-enthusiast I suppose.

the really sad think is that most youtubers and tech websites just reported intels claims without using a single braincell....

Intel to launch a 28-core monster CPU running at 5GHz later this year


.....


Intel revealed this CPU with a demo at Computex, and Anandtech reports that a system powered by the processor hit a score of 7,334 in the Cinebench R15 benchmark. The chip giant also announced that this monster CPU would be out in the final quarter of this year, so this isn’t something for way down the line.

Nope. Looking around it is clear that certain websites still absolutely love Intel, because they were immediately saying AMD were screwed.

It's things like this that make me thankful I don't have a website. Because then I can't be a cringe worthy cheese helmet.

You'd think people would actually be able to see the woods for the trees these days, but nope. They literally can't wait for Intel to start gaping them again.
