    Best part, it is completely free of the Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) security nightmare.

    Intel is showing signs of desperation again. Just announced an 18c/36t i9-7980XE CPU in order to compete. These are compatible with the X299 motherboards. 165W TDP.

    haha! They were so holding out on us too, and not going to give us anything bigger than 12/24 count for consumer market. This is why I think we all need to buy and build at least one big AMD rig later this years as a thank you for the competition. Yeah, I've heard the argument that it doesn't matter, Intel cranks out new stuff anyway, etc . . . but I guarantee they don't crank it out near as fast or give the consumer sector everything they could when they have no external competition!

    Re: AMD Threadripper

    Exactly. Intel really has been screwing us over for the past several years because there was no competition from AMD. It's also 100% true Intel was only going to give us a max of 12c/24t with the X299 platform. Might ought to build a large AMD rig anyway because it'll likely still be much cheaper than an equivalent Intel system.

    Sure, but the point was if AMD didn't release anything strong, then Intel would have held out on us AGAIN and only given that power to their $$$ making high-end corporate market.
