    DDR4 support and DDR5 support suddenly made this more interesting for me.

    If it's 10nm it's DOA unless they sacrificed enough green badges to the Foundry Gods.

    Their 10nm superfin is pretty solid. Wouldn't write it off just yet.

    They promise "up to" 20% higher ST performance. That means there is variability either based on IPC improvement for different workloads or variable clock limit in different workloads.

    So, maybe they improved IPC a lot on some parts, but lost clock.
    Either way, 8x PCIe 4.0 for chipset is very good.
    And PCIe 5.0 for graphics is great. As well as DDR5 support.

    What I would wory about is proper and "latency-free" workload switching from/to Golden Cove to/from Gracemont cores.
    And I am interested in actual size differences between those 2 types of cores.

    Probably why it says hardware guided scheduling for multicore performance, so it seeks make best use of available cores without windows input

    I would only buy a cpu WITHOUT the small cores... cause it's bound to cause issues, and the small cores wont benefit gaming performance at all, which is all i care about.

    Fortunately it does look like intel is aware of most gamers feeling like that.

    I have no performance expectations, I'm just glad they're finally releasing something really new. There's no way in hell however that I am getting onboard 1st gen tech. I'm still salty about Willamette and RDRAM.
