    " From a pure price perspective, this jump from the top core count part down to the one just below it is sizable, although Intel does have a history with this, such as the E3-1200 Xeon line where the top processor, with a 100 MHz higher frequency than the second best, was 30%+ higher in cost."

    Must be nice having a monopoly.

    That's not a monopoly thing as, by definition, they provide very, very strong competition to themselves :) Some customers are presumably truly price insensitive for whatever reason. Reply

    If all you care about is upfront costs, then yes, Intel's high-end parts are expensive. But if you run a data center where "performance/watt" is critical, then the cost of the top parts are reasonable. Reply

    I'm confused how 4 cores less but 600Mhz less per core on base frequency and all turbo is "better performance per watt" while being almost 1400 USD more per processor. Reply

    "Must be nice having a monopoly."

    Well anybody that states Intel has a monopoly should rethink that, even Apple could be consider a Monopoly because they don't allow others to manufacture products on iOS - but the one that comes to mind the most is Qualcomm with recent announcements of Windows 10 for ARM - which only works on Qualcomm.. Can we say Windows 10 for Qualcomm - sorry no thanks

    But the real thing that make Qualcomm a real monopoly is it telecommunications.

    I guess you can argue what a monopoly is, but Intel is irrefutably abuses their dominant position in the marketplace. The former is not a sin, the later is illegal. Intel is repugnant. Reply

    "Living on the Edge"
    Right on.
    Will it work? will it get infested due to the various sec. holes? will it get bricked like their C2000 cousins?
    You can never tell what's going to come tomorrow when you use intel.

    I think you are trying to referred to Atom bases servers - they have been replace with C3xxx versions like 16 Core

    But if these new D series Xeons have lower power - I could see them replace C2000 cousins. or this Atom based server

    Looks like only 14 D2xxx CPUs (in all the tables/charts) not 15 as stated in the section header. Reply
