    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.
