PSA (not a deal) - Intel 10980xe in-stock (really)

Recommended Posts

i9 10980xe is Intel's latest 18-core socket-2066 CPU

 

We've waited a ****long**** time for these things to actually be available.

We have them... as do others.

 Seems like you would need a hefty power supply.

@Jim Roseberry Have you run any tests on these yet? What is the biggest benefit for having this CPU? Just raw power? Or helps in a mix?  Or is it all about low latency?

Will it make my mixes suck less??

It will suck funds from your bank account.  Those 1000W PSUs are pricey too.  Unless you are making money off what you do the investment is not worth it.

With something like that I would go with the whole 256 gigs of RAM.

It seems like a dream for those in video editing.

Hi Michael,

 

It's a slight improvement vs. the prior generation socket-2066 i9 9980xe.

Cost is about half that of the 9980xe.

 

The 10980xe will be popular with folks who are more "hard-core" composers.

With 18 cores, the 10980xe will be good for heavily multi-threaded scenarios (large scale projects).

The advantage vs. Threadripper will be better performance at smallest ASIO buffer sizes (because higher clock-speed).

Threadripper is amazing at heavily multi-threaded scenarios (video rendering)... but its Achilles-Heel is trying to work at extremely low latency.

 

ie:  Say you have a Presonus Quantum... which lets you work at 96k using a 32-sample ASIO buffer size.

That translates to 1ms (measured) total round-trip latency.

Working at such low latency is not something that lends itself to being heavily multi-threaded (spread across multiple cores).

This is where clock-speed is critical.

The 10980xe is a more "balanced" choice than Threadripper.

You've got good multi-threaded performance... AND... good ultra low latency performance.

 

The new 10900k (socket-1200) is turning up the heat on all the above.

  • 10 cores
  • 20 processing threads
  • 5.3GHz clock-speed
  • Runs quiet with quality air-cooling

Yes looking at that now. I was wondering about that. I remember when those other XE processors came out. Whoa!! I thought they were nuts asking that kind of money for a proc.

Answered another question I had. I've been reading that the new Threadrippers were beasts also. Was wondering how they matched up to Intel's best.

I was looking at this! Not much more ($469) than what I spent on my i9 ($429).
