    Ice/Comet still the same elementary arch, rehashed yet again with maybe a die shrink. Still, thanks to the ever ticking IPC clock a modern chip could give away a 1000mhz handicap and still beat the 2nd gen stuff.

    I wouldn't trust an Intel press release or roadmap at this point that has anything to do with 10nm.

    Interesting to see if the 9900KS comes out at a premium price point, they can probably pitch that on gaming performance.

    I expect there will be the usual early adopter tax so waiting just a couple of months for the usual suspects to buy up, bin and sell the not-best at discount would be wise :D
    AUD is gonna hurt a bit but the 10's should still be a whole lot cheaper per core & ghz than the current HEDT offerings.

    Really hope so, I am still rocking a 6700k but really want to take it to 8 or 12 cores. Unfortunately Ryzen isn't an option otherwise id have upgraded already :(

    Yes HPE, Dell, SuperMicro, everyone have it all wrong and should be using overclocked watercooled whiteboxes as servers instead of xeons with ECC support, we get it.

    Is your system uptime record 15 minutes?

    18 points of possible failure. Be fucked if I'd trust that. pH coolant I'd be checking it every month with that much copper

    To be fair I have had 2 systems with water cooling loops with automotive that have been sealed for 4yrs and never serviced / never leaked but yeah fk running that in a vertical stack without some serious engineering.

    Fixed.

    No way I'd ever trust a retail consumer processor for mission critical. 2x evenings of mild OC 9900KF = dead as a door nail
    :rolleyes: Junk ... you need a 3 year warranty for sure.

    Yeah, cos' Cray are sooooo middle end.

    For the n00bs here: Cray have been liquid cooling systems longer than many of you have been alive. I'd trust that they have a skerrick of knowledge on the engineering required to do this.

    Oh, I dunno. Don't AMD support ECC memory across a vast swathe of their lineup? Bugger that Intel non-ECC desktop for a lark.

    Impressive stuff!

    This is a feature of Apple. They don't design products to last past warranty expiration. At the end of the day your $6000 imac is a consumable.
