Intel better keep both eyes on whatever mainboard manufacturer wants to release a board for that 28 core chip, because when oc'd that chip is going to melt any board that dares to take even the most minor of design shortcuts in the VRM...
I'd be amazed if this thing has anything more than an extra 100mhz or so left in the tank for (all core) overclocking.
Like the Ryzen 2xxx CPU's they're probably already running near flat out from the factory.
Toms managed to track down the board and cooling solution Intel used for the 28 core chip...
4x 8 Pin power connectors
Balls to the wall VRM setup
VRM cooler design that actually does something and still needs 4 fans
The CPU itself was cooled with a water chiller
Big surprise on the water chiller... expect 4.5 daily at best. That’s if you can stomach the undoubtably high price.
"this is said to start June 7th 2018" - wow, they have developed control over time too...
Considering the rumoured pricing of the 8086K it better grant control over time
Limited Edition ? you mean cherry picked.
Yes. It is a cherry picked 8700K with the limited edition SKU attached.
