Intel's 28-core Xeon W-3175X listed for £4000

That's a lot of cores for a lot more money...



Read more about Intel's Xeon W-3175X 28-core processor.

Can someone explain to me why corporate and industrial use would require overclocking?

1. it reduces longevity
2. it produces chances of instability

Imagine housing a server for banking or data ID verification, and your CPU has difficulties at a higher than necessary clock speed, thus crashing. Automatic or not, I dont see the need.

Throw in the fact that this increases consumption, something of which business would conscious about.

Intel are muddling this CPU up with gaming CPUs. I mean, I can see why you would want to overclock a workstation (to get encodes etc done faster) but like you say it won't happen in server world.

Intel just seem to be very, very dazed and confused after the Ryzen bomb dropped. I think they genuinely weren't expecting it to do anything at all.

I agree, I don't think intel know what to do with this. As we have seen with threadripper, to many threads and gaming performance falls off a cliff so this is not a gaming chip and overclocking on server platforms is like running a butchers stand at a vegan event, though im sure these would fly in servers, whilst they last. They justify the price by calling it a Xeon, this is simply a show of force to assure investors that they are not falling behind... even though anyone with real tech knowledge knows intel are pooing themselves right now, especially with the next version of EPYC round the corner and then Zen to follow

I don't think they were. One of Intel's big heads said in late 2016, "[they aren't] expecting significant disruption from AMD's new Zen architecture."

https://www.dvhardware.net/article65603.html

All evidence I know of points to either them lying to save face, knowing they were in for a long few years—which is not likely because I don't think they knew how bad 10nm was at the time—or they were genuinely clueless—which is more likely because again I think they didn't know how bad 10nm was going to be and how affordable Zen was going to be. What proves is it what he says about 14nm being for power efficient notebooks. Since then, 14nm has been refined so many times and has been used in monster chips, not just small notebooks. In fact, their smaller chips have now begun fabrication on older generation process node. What will 14nm go down in history as? Not a small notebook fabrication process. It'll be the '5Ghz process', or the '$4k 28c process'.
