Well the tagline isAnd extra leaping:
"As impressive as those generational numbers are, they really only help to somewhat narrow the Grand Canyon sized competitive performance gap we’ve had to date, and the 40-core Xeon 8380 still loses out to a 32-core Milan, and from a performance / price comparison, even a premium 75F3 costs 40% less than the Xeon 8380. "
If Apple were to move to AMD that would be great for Apple and pretty terrible for everybody else as Apple could single handedly consume 100% of the supply.Or, another reason why Apple is ditching Intel. I can't imagine the company updating the iMac Pro or Mac Pro with these and facing the barrage of "but Threadripper/Epyc is faster with fewer cores" criticism. It's good that Intel is moving on to 10nm at this level, but it should've been there ages ago.
The way Apple gets first dibs on everything TSMC, I am sure TSMC would "magically" find extra capacity for Apple at the expense of everyone else.If Apple were to move to AMD that would be great for Apple and pretty terrible for everybody else as Apple could single handedly consume 100% of the supply.
“Ice Lake SP is an impressive and major generation leap for Intel’s enterprise line-up”
As impressive as the new Xeon 8380 is from a generational and technical stand-point, what really matters at the end of the day is how it fares up to the competition. I’ll be blunt here; nobody really expected the new ICL-SP parts to beat AMD or the new Arm competition – and it didn’t.
