    The XE10980XE is not even in the same performance/price group as the 3960x and 3970x which both perform miles ahead of it. Intel has no HEDT counterparts to respond to both these CPU's. The closest comparison is the 3950x. Both these CPU's are competitively comparable.

    If anything I feel sorry for those who couldn't hold out and wait for the 10980XE and purchased the 9980xe in the meantime.

    Has anyone seen any 10980XE out in the wild? They seem to be sold out or with ETAs for next year.

    A member here told me he canceled his 10980XE back-order as he was revised to the 20th of Jan...

    The only people buying these CPU's are the ones who want a drop in upgrade for their existing x299 system. I had a 7820x myself so saw value in being able to drop a 10920x in without having to build an entire new system and the performance improvement has been pretty solid. I did a few before/after benchmarks for comparisons sake so somebody in a similar situation might be able to make a decision for themselves. I mostly wanted faster video rendering times but gaming performance improved more than I expected it to, which was nice.

    Where are all the 10980xe?

    Ive been wanting to upgrade from my 9900x.

    I guess at this rate i may as well wait for a 10990xe or pickup a 9980xe.

    Reduce prices then limited stock then drive up artificial demand. Just wait more stocks in shop.

    Fair few were in stock last few days. Did anyone grab one because they out of stock again apart from 1 on fleabay atm ???

    I want to see someone post some scores with 10980XE. I doubt it can keep up with my 7980XE but I am interested to see OC results and binning. :thumbup:

    Is it anticpated they'll be fairly easily overclocked to 5Ghz all cores like one of the other ones they released?

    I cant remember the names of the last few Intels...18 core at 5Ghz would be damn nice though.

    I dunno about "fairly easily" but easier than the older revisions but keeping the temps tamed is going to be your biggest issue since soldered its major headache to delid or run direct die which the 7980XE doesn't have that issue.

    My 7980XE could do 5GHz at 1.36v which is very good. An equivalent 9980XE would go 4.9GHz at 1.27v but another good silicon equivalent 10980XE will be able to do 5GHz at 1.25 - 1.26v due to being better binned again but you will run hotter due to the less surface / contact quality of heat transfer so you gain and you lose. The LM delid chip will always be better than solder and direct die contact cooling will be significantly better again and those two options will now be crazy high risk to the point where you wouldn't bother.

    Most should do 4.9GHz okay though. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I always thought solder would have been better than the toothpaste they were using before! 4.9Ghz isn't anything to sneeze at. Id be super happy.

    I still havent bothered trying to OC my 3900X though so...id prob stay stock anyway lol

    Solder is better than toothpaste TIM for sure. The toothpaste is good because you can easily remove it and replace it with LM. Lol

    Yeah 4.9GHz is good, most people should be able to get there.
