Intel is replacing all sockets. Get over your socket hate.

I still find it strange that they using older Nehalem based core for these latest top end chips. If I was paying that much for a CPU I'd like to think I was getting their latest and best technology.
Still, if they do a cost analysis, I'm sure it'll work out for them.

I don't quite think I need that many cores just yet. My i7 does what i need it to do.

but can it run crysis

anyway, this cpu will be great for anyone want run there own webhosting/datacentre, it will be capable of running multiple virtual machines.

As it does for almost all of us. Having said that, some of my colleagues would love that for some of the weird FEA/rendering they do.

EDIT: Haha, it supports 8-chip configurations. 160 threads, anyone?

130W TDP for a Deca-Core? good effort!

Imagine the TDP on a Sandy/Ivy based Deca-Core Xeon.. 80W? lol

130W seems a little too optimistic, methinks. I'd find this figure much easier to accept if it was typical draw rather than peak draw... So, are you guys @ BT labs going to test a specimen or two?

That's TDP - the typical load heat output, not power consumption per se.

I'll be speaking to Intel about it this very morning. Though I think it would only be fair to test four, not two

That's TDP - the typical load heat output, not power consumption per se.
The TDP is the Thermal Design Power - the amount of energy the CPU will output, the amount of energy you must design your coolers to be able to absorb - it's the maximum the chip will output. With Intel CPUs, this is done at full load - the chip will only emit a maximum 130w of heat no matter how heavily loaded it is.

That is also the power drawn from the wall by the CPU.
