This is the same skylake-x in a different package so power consumption will be astronomical.
plus the power consumption of a 1 HP water chiller required to reach 5 GHz. :p

Base clock for a reasonable TDP (say 250W) will have to be below 3GHz .
Yup..agree on it!!
plus the power consumption of a 1 HP water chiller required to reach 5 GHz. :p
Think about 28 cores running at 5GHz..thats a massive power dissipation!! Even using the above config to a run a good server with 1 HP chiller is insane:banghead:

This article is by Antony Leather from Forbes Magazine.

Intel has revealed what could be a major challenge to AMD's Threadripper 2 processors in the form of its most powerful desktop CPU ever. The yet unnamed CPU was revealed at the Computex trade show in Taiwan and during the presentation, the CPU appears to be able to sit at a massive 5GHz across all cores too and is due for release in Q4 this year.

The fact it can reach 5GHz at all is incredible, but across all cores will mean it's not just very powerful but also one of the first CPUs in Intel's line-up to reach 5GHz, with the first being the Core i7-8086K Anniversary Limited Edition.
The move will mean that Intel is introducing a 10-core, 20-thread jump from its current most powerful desktop processor

seems you are late to the party. this is old news and they were using aquarium chiller for this and it was stupid.

Intel's demo didn't tell the full story. Many in the press mistakenly assumed the new processor runs at 5.0 GHz at stock settings, but we carefully analyzed video from the event and spotted a few obvious signs that the processor was overclocked. Intel was apparently running some sort of closed-loop cooling that required insulating material around the tubing. This turns out to be a water chiller hidden under the table. As expected, all of the components are properly shielded to avoid excess condensation from the chilled liquid.

And btw, Threadripper 2 just broke the cinebench world record
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX CPU and the AMD Ryzen OC team achieved the highest benchmark score in the single socket desktop CPU category in the following benchmarks:

System configuration:

  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 32/64T CPU
  • ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME X399 motherboard
  • 4x8GB Gskill DDR4-3200 memory (running at DDR4-3400 CL16-16-16-36)
  • AMD Radeon RX 460 Graphics Card
  • Liquid Nitrogen CPU cooling, -196C
  • 512GB M2 NVME drive
  • 1600W Power Supply

BTW, small tidbit, I recently came to know that splave is nephew of my colleague who sits across the desk from me :)
