Charlie, owner of the blog Techtoniks delves into Intel's HEDT roadmap and what their plan is for the future of HEDT processors. He explains how Intel could turn their fortunes around by designating two distinct lineups of chips to compete against AMD's ThreadRipper series and more. It is a very well written blog post and full of interesting information for the tech enthusiast to digest. Highly recommended. The 'A' series parts would compete nicely against AMD's WX Threadripper parts (2970WX and 2990WX) while the 'X' series would compete against AMD's X Threadripper parts (2920X and 2950X), not only would Intel have an IPC advantage, clock speed advantage, latency advantage, but they'd also be able to offer more models at varying price points, and as I said before, the HEDT market is diverse - such a simplified product stack would be welcomed by all I feel.
