    Considering the 18 core 9980XE is just under USD $2k and the W-3175 is a 28 core CPU, I would estimate USD $3k to $3.2k

    Which would be silly as you would just choose a 32 core Threadripper.

    depends on the workload. the intels spank it sometimes, and vice versa. when you buy these its important to examine your particular application.

    the W-3175 beats everything so if you need 'beats everything' which is a rare requirement, then you would buy it. :/

    Usually every intel HEDT platform get two refreshes. Is X299 getting Skylake-X twice and that's it for X299 or is any more refresh coming for X299 any one knows ?

    19% higher base clock, 55% more cores than 7890xe

    the arch is mature, so no surprises in store. hardware sites say the same basically. so again, whats the drama?

    if you have any other questions, let me know.

    Regards,
    Intel


    ps btw i think amd are releasing updates for 2990wx that might make it handle numa better. that should be interesting.

    So that's a no then?

    28 core vs 32 core. You might want to rephrase your "beats everything" comment.
