Woo! Meanwhile.... I won’t say it again.
Not much of a surprise, the -X/-XP variants always turned up around a year (one gen) later than the desktop version. With 10nm slated for late 2019, that would put the big Xeons at late 2020 unless Intel wanted to put a lot of risk into them (which makes no sense for their target market, who take reliability uber alles).
I wonder if AMD can steal some of the server market with their 7nm chips before then?
From what i read they already are, we're not talking massive swings but i seem to remember reading how there's been a 3% swing towards AMD in the enterprise space.
EDIT: Managed to find the article and i was wrong to say 3%, it was 1.3%.
Even though that's a tiny swing it's swinging in the right direction (imo) as it's gone from a 0.5% swing a year ago, to a 1% swing last Qtr, and 1.3% for Q2 2018.
