RIDICULOUSLY expensive when you can get 64-core (multi-core) performance only 30% more but 4X as expensive than AMD.

It´s too expensive and the performence doesn´t justify it´s price. Just look at the Ryzen 9 3950X.

The refreshed i9-7980XE (which in my opinion is one of my favourite CPU from Intel even with slightly bloated pricing), comes with soldered TIM which can transfer heat from die to IHS better but overclocking enthusiasts disappoints as the solder itself transfer lower heat than metallic thermal paste such as Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut and can complicate relidding.

Lol with the new weighting of UserBenchmark (10/08/19) this is about equal to the ryzen 5 3600... As much as I am an AMD fanboy, this is a bit iffy and the weighting sould be corrected... 3600 = 9980XE is a bit unrealistic.
