It would be cool. Too bad it's an OEM part. I'd love a gaming rig with more PCIe lanes but I don't need 24+ cores with the current TR.

Was interested in these family of new CPU's, but too bad they are available for OEM only. Was curious to see what the motherboards would look like too.

You can still get OEM cpus, will be harder but one could source. That said, I can see why they are limiting these to OEM channels, these chips in the wild would impact their other lines especially allowing end users to skip OEM client solutions. And getting into the high end workstation space is their purpose to begin with.

I saw this last night.
It would be an option for those of us that can benefit from the build but cannot justify white boxing a workstation under any circumstance.

I kinda wonder what the 12/24 thread would cost. Would love more pci-e lanes over my 3900x, but my 3900x is sufficient cpu-wise.

Maybe when games will give a damn about 8 channel memory I'd take notice. As it currently stands even quad channel memory is all but pointless for game only applications.

my guess probably around a grand if you're able to find a single cpu but not sure how long lenovo has exclusivity rights to it so may be a while before you find a board that supports it.. in a prebuild with bare minimum addon's i'd venture a guess some where between 3-5k depending on addon's based on their prices for xeon workstations.

hm, $1k-$400 = $600 diff

24 (?) vs 128 pci-e lanes = 104 lanes, or $5.76 per pci-lane. This doesn' include any case/motherboard/power supply upgrades I'd need....at $1k I think I'm gonna pass :-/

Does kind of highlight how few pci lanes Ryzen has that. With storage going to that bus too they need to sort that at some point. Red and blue.

Then again I’d definitely have been more likely to 3950x if I hadn’t known I’d end up limited by that so it doesn’t make business sense as I’m very much non-consumer in my use cases.

Even before the PS5 did what it did I/O was gonna be the next frontier, it’s so f’ing hard to keep processors fed, core counts being what they are.
