5ghz waterchiller told! Anonymous 06/07/2018 (Thu) 07:21:40 [Preview] No. 12773
Intel CAKES their pants in 28 core 5ghz fiasco!

Crosspost from 8ch
>Intel hosts cringey as fuck presentation before AMD presentation
>Ends it with announcement of new 28 core CPU that will be stock 5 gHz
>Shows off a short cinderbench demo at 5 ghz
>Says will be available at end of 2018
>Doesn't specify price or what cooling it uses
>AMD announces Threadripper 2 right after with regular air cooled heatsink
>Next day Intel pulls demo units from show before press could dig into the specs
>Press manage to take photos of the mobo/cooler and some benchmarks
>Asus and Gigabyte used 1KW water chiller and custom loop to keep the chip at -10 at idle
>Commenters figure out it must be one of the Xeon Skylake X chips that Intel rushed for the show to have some desktop answer for TR2
>Anadtech mentions that they couldn't see one of the demo's at 5 ghz because there wasn't enough power to run the rig and the chiller at the same time
>Commenters conclude that the chip must be pulling over 600W at full 5 ghz

Fuck sake, endchan didn't post the images.

Anyway, this is another serious blunder from Intel, after all the exploits that came out from their corner cutting for speed.

>We confirmed that Intel was using a water chiller in the 5 GHz demo, a Hailea HC-1000B, which is a 1 HP water chiller good for 1500-4000 liters per hour and uses the R124 refrigerant to reduce the temperature of the water to 4 degrees Celsius. Technically this unit has a cooling power of 1770W, which correlates to the fact that a Corsair AX1600i power unit was being used for the system.

>Intel's demo didn't tell the full story. Many in the press mistakenly assumed the new processor runs at 5.0 GHz at stock settings, but we carefully analyzed video from the event and spotted a few obvious signs that the processor was overclocked. Intel was apparently running some sort of closed-loop cooling that required insulating material around the tubing. This turns out to be a water chiller hidden under the table. As expected, all of the components are properly shielded to avoid excess condensation from the chilled liquid.

>The one-horsepower Hailea HC-1000B is a beefy water chiller that can dissipate tremendous amounts of waste heat, but it also requires more than 1,000W for operation. We were originally going to witness the demo first hand, but there wasn't enough power handy to run both the chiller and the system simultaneously

Why is intel not prepared?
They must have a huge R&D advance, from all of this years without any real advance an breakthrough, against an AMD which was nearly none existence.
This demo seems like they took a random card on their desk, plugged some cooling and tapped this together.

That's weird. Maybe intel is in a bad shape, even though that's hard to believe with the money they're making for so much long time. I would like to read more about this.

Intel have been too busy losing their server market due to all the vulnerabilities in their chips because they cut corners to beat AMD in speed. I think Intel has been struggling to keep ahead of AMD for a long while now. This should be a spectacular shit show as they fall down hard in the coming years. I personally can't wait to see what new levels of low they can attain after this.

Their R&D has been in Yidsrael for a while now. They probably can't keep up with AMD and have been using fraud and pipe dreams to buy a little more time for years.
