After it has long been very quiet around the much criticized presentation of a 28-Kerners on the Computex by Intel , there is now again a new sign of life. From unspecified press material Videocardz has released a photo of a motherboard from ASUS, which should be one of the platforms for the new high-end desktop processors from Intel. On Computex briefly issued and referred to as ROG Dominus, the model name is still unknown.
On the photo you can not see the level of development of the Computex anymore, because the motherboards were still clearly to be regarded as prototypes. In the background is the socket LGA3647, which is also used in the server segment for the Skylake SP processors. Right and left of the six memory slots to see – framed by the special DIMM slots for the corresponding DIMM.2 riser cards from ASUS . Behind the base, a large radiator can be seen, which apparently covers the entire power supply of the mainboard.
In the meantime, a large heat sink or a cover between the PCI Express slots and the rest of the mainboard is visible in the foreground. The power supply of the motherboard is apparently over 2x 24-pin and on the basis of the size ratios can be easily foreseen that we have a motherboard in E-ATX format in front of us.
Intel was criticized in June by the way the preview of a 28-core processor in the HEDT segment, because they presented a system at 5 GHz CPU clock, this value came only due to a very complex cooling to conditions , Of course, Intel wanted to oppose the Ryzen thread ripper processors with up to 32 cores at least medially. This shot should probably go backwards, because at that time and even now it is not clear when and in what form Intel will introduce the new platform.
Whether a possible Core i9-9980XE based on the Skylake architecture will appear or whether you already bet on Cascade Lake, will show. Intel is hosting a livestream for an event this afternoon. Whether there will be any details about the HEDT platform remains to be seen.
