The issue isn't just the CPU performance but the entire platform. There is more to it than just the chip and Intel knows that. It is one of the main aspects Intel has over their competition in the consumer market is that their platform evolves faster and in the Data Center market the platform always needs to be top of the line.

Renee James, Intel’s former President, from what I understand is running the show at this new chip company:

https://techcrunch.com/2018/02/05/former-intel-president-launches-new-chip-company-with-backing-from-carlyle-group/


techcrunch (and hence, Yahoo!,) is trying to make it sound like the tech is completely brand new... at least to those who don't know about the buyout of the underlying tech.

It's not that simple... This is a really bad pamphlet instead of the article! They aren't aiming at HPC but cloud data storage & generally network IO one's & the team has much more interesting person's than former Intel president.

There you have a good interview all do a bit boring.

In fairness to Lucian, the article didn't state anything about HPC and did specifically reference the data center market.

The Yahoo/TechCrunch articles look like they state that these "new" CPUs have a TDP of 125W. Other details were indeed missing.
