Intel’s Next-Generation ‘Cascade Lake-X’ HEDT CPUs Due in Octoberby Anton Shilov on September 4, 2019 4:00 PM EST

Intel said Wednesday that its next-generation codenamed Cascade Lake-X processors for high-end desktops will be revealed next month. The company says that the new CPUs will provide a significant boost in performance per dollar when compared to its existing codenamed Skylake-X products, which gives some idea regarding improvements of the chips.
Intel naturally does not disclose specifications of its processors that are at least a month away, so instead it demonstrated a slide showing relative performance per dollar in content creation applications. According to Intel’s internal testing, its Cascade-Lake-X processors will provide a 1.74x – 2.09x relative per-dollar performance improvement when compared to Skylake-X.
Trying to figure out exact core count or price points of Cascade Lake-X CPUs from one performance diagram is certainly not a good business. Meanwhile, from Intel’s launch of its 2nd Generation Xeon Scalable products we know that the company offers either a higher frequency, or more cores at the same price when compared to the prior generation products. So, it is reasonable to expect Cascade Lake-X to provide similar advantages compared to Skylake-X. Also, Intel has launched the Xeon W-3200 series based on Cascade Lake, which will offer some similarity to these parts.
Intel’s Cascade Lake-X processors will use LGA2066 socket and will be compatible with Intel X299-based motherboards with appropriate BIOS and features.

deil - Thursday, September 5, 2019 - linkThey moved from pure performance gain to performance per dollar, so its 30% cheaper at least :)
they used statistic that was AMD domain for years.....
So they are not ahead in performance per vat, pure power or any other meaningful metric.
What's next performance per ramstick ?
SanX - Friday, September 6, 2019 - linkPerformance per RAM channel. The bigger the better :)
YB1064 - Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - linkIs there a need for a giant Intel banner in this blurb?
jcc5169 - Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - linkIntel Propaganda machine kicks into high gear to convince us that they still matter
Dug - Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - linkAnd threadripper 3rd gen should be releasing about same time.
I'd be curious how well Ryzen 3950x would do which apparently is out this month.
nicamarvin - Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - linkNo, Zen 2 based TR will be released in first quarter 2020
shreduhsoreus - Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - link10980XE that's 5% faster than the 9980XE but for $1099. That's what that sounds like to me. If you actually need the cores AND they need to be as fast as possible...that's actually not bad.
I returned my 3900X and have an X399 board to drop a new TR in(to replace my 1900X that I bought as a placeholder). Zen 2 is an improvement over Zen+, but it was definitely over hyped. Never mind the driver issues because AMD hasn't been able to do a proper launch in years. I'll pay a little bit extra for a processor that actually works correctly. The past year with AMD has been a nightmare.
Irata - Thursday, September 5, 2019 - linkOK, this is confusing. From your description, you have a socket TR4 board but also two Socket AM4 CPU.
Also, the timing seems a bit odd - since you are talking about the past year, I would assume that you had an older Ryzen+ (so 2xxx) and board, then got a 3900x which you returned because "the last year with AMD has been a nightmare" / you were disappointed.
So disappointed in fact that you decided to go for AMD's Threadripper platform (same company, same core, just more expensive) ?
Whatever floats your boat, but it sounds a bit odd.
AshlayW - Thursday, September 5, 2019 - linkProbably paid to trash-talk Ryzen 3000. The sad thing is, it's actually something that happens a lot. We have to remember how Intel play dirty when they had an inferior design to Athlon 64.
Mr.Vegas - Friday, September 6, 2019 - linkWOW, your a real life nut case, i bet you have a collection of tin foil hats
