01:49AM EDT - Usually one of the bigger press events of Computex is Intel's Keynote. This year it will be hosted by Intel's Gregory Bryant, and we will be all-ears to hear what Intel is going to say about upcoming products.

01:50AM EDT - Ian and Anton here to bring you the news

01:51AM EDT - As with previous years, this presentation starts 10 minutes early with Taitra

01:51AM EDT - TAITRA organize the Computex show, so they get to decide some of the schedule

01:51AM EDT - As always, the Intel keynote tends to be well attended

01:52AM EDT - Internet connectivity can be a bit hit and miss

01:52AM EDT - So the first 10 minutes here is about TAITRA and the show. As well as the obligatory 'Intel is great' for being a top sponsor

01:54AM EDT - We've been writing up some quick news posts for later today from our meetings that started at 8am this morning

    AMD Threadripper 2 event just got rekt.

    Go troll on wccftech or somewhere else.

    It's nice to see Intel showing off what its fabs are actually capable of.

    As for the rather ignorant comments that a 28 core part "has to be EMIB"... maybe if the people that wrote this "blog" had bothered to pay attention to the Skylake launch last year they'd know that 28 core parts on a single piece of silicon aren't anything new for Intel.

    Some companies learned how to put more than 8 cores on a chip a long long time before the fanboys acted like AMD invented the number "8" in 2017.
  • III-V - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - link

    It's not a matter of "can they make a 28 core chip," dumbass. It's a matter of cost. If they can make a 28 core chip with EMIB stitching together dies, performs well, and costs less than a monolithic die (which it almost certainly would), why would they opt for a single die over a MCM?

    Both Ian and Anton have been in the business for a long time. They're well aware that Intel can make big dies. It's pretty hilarious that you are calling them ignorant.
  • CajunArson - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - link

    Once again we see the usual assumption that because GloFo can't get its act together to produce a chip with more than 8 cores that Intel must be operating under the same constraints because of course Intel is full of a bunch of idiots.

    Or not.

    Intel is fully capable of producing a single die 28-core part cost effectively since these are clearly aimed at the halo-end of the HEDT segment. Stop pretending that GloFo's limitations are a roadblock to Intel.
  • tamalero - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - link

    I'm unsure why are you blaming glofo for this. The usage of "glue" by AMD has been a success for them. Why would you risk yourself with low yields when you can use a clever design?
  • FullmetalTitan - Thursday, June 7, 2018 - link

    Per all my colleagues who left intel in the last 5 years:
    It IS full of idiots.

    AMD strategy of designing a simple core design and modulating perf/cores for different market segmentation to improve ROI was a massive boon in FY2017 in case you missed it.

    Intel is NOT capable of producing a single 28-core monolithic design cost effectively or the Xeon parts with >24 cores wouldn't be in such limited supply and cost $10k+ list.
    I guarantee the yields for the HCC and XCC parts is significantly lower than LCC/consumer parts because that is just an inherent issue with large die designs. No matter how tight your designs, defective limited yield issues are die-size dependent.
  • ilt24 - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - link

    "why would they opt for a single die over a MCM?"

    Because it performs better.
  • witeken - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - link

    Do you follow me on Twitter, bro:)?
  • CaedenV - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - link

    We all know that Intel can do great things. The question right now is availability. How many of these will be pushed back to 2019, and will we see more than 2 of each of these new products available for the whole world to fight over.
