Corsair Launches $3000 4,000MHz 192GB Memory Kit for Intel's Xeon X-3175X

That's a lot of memory... and a lot of money...



Read more about Corsair's $3000 4,000MHz 192GB 6-channel DDR4 memory kits.

Honestly i hardly see the point of this platform being on the consumer market.


All this will do is encourage more of this insanity, we don't need it in general, and the people willing to spend this much for this level of equipment would do so at a specialist anyway.

The point is because Intel wants to appear to be the best for as long as possible. 32-core Threadripper scared them, and this was their response. That's my thoughts on the matter.

To which AMD could respond easily with Zen2 if they want to go all out and put a 48 core on the table, or even 64.


Regardless, it quickly comes down to silly levels, but competition even on this level is good i suppose.

Intel's competition to Epyc2 will be upto 48-core MCM based designs (2x24 core chips) so I think that's pretty likely yeah.

Yeah, but that design is basically changing what would have been a 2-socket server layout into a 1 socket server. Useful for some use cases, but nothing revolutionary from Intel, especially when AMD has 64-core chips on the way.

(Some info about Intel's planned 48 core CPU)

Interesting product, but in my eyes its just Intel trying to hold out as long as possible until they can actually do something about AMD's core advantage. It will be very interesting to see how EPYC 2 impacts the server market.

I think as we move into the future the line between server/workstation hardware and PC hardware will become a lot murkier. If, as I believe we are, we are headed into a new dawn of highly threaded gaming and etc then I think the two would cross paths.

Back in the late 90s and mid noughties I always bought workstation hardware in cut priced sales. It got you a butt load of extra performance back then, because the Xeons had quadruple the cache of a regular CPU and it was full clock speed cache.

That seemed to change with AMD's first FX range (the good stuff) and the Tbird and so on. It was cheaper to buy desktop hardware.

However, thinking about it now? not much has changed. I still run a 14 core server CPU as it was the same price as the Ryzen 1800X and about 25% faster when threading (due to clock deficit and the fact it doesn't overclock past 3.2ghz on all cores).

I just find stuff like that, especially used, is just so much cheaper than "gaming" product.

But yeah, I would guess and say with the core war raging it won't be long before you see mad core counts. I mean, we've already got 32 in HEDT.

I think it temporarily is quite murky but the gap will widen again now server chips are generally going beyond 16 cores.

Going beyond 16 cores even on a 95% parallel workload requires doubling the core count to see (theoretical maximums of, assuming memory bandwidth and thermal throttling and everything doesn't impose further limits) ~20% gains, so you really need to be feeding 16+ core processors with entirely independent or embarrassingly parallel workloads to get the most out of them, which gaming could never be. I guess the limit of what companies will sell as a gaming chip is the number of cores they can fit into a package without having to reduce clock speeds/single threaded performance though so maybe there will be some crossover chips for streamers and stuff making a little murkiness.

Audio is similar tbh. It's quite easy to get to 130db but then for every subwoofer you add you only gain something daft like 5db. And as you explain it gets lower to the point where another sub will only add 2db.
