Guys over at TweakTown snapped a picture of Intel’s Cascade Lake-X 28-core CPU.
ASUS ROG DOMINUS
The motherboard shown in the photograph is clearly not meant for gaming enthusiasts. This server-grade hardware designed by ASUS was used during the 28-core HEDT CPU Cinebench presentation. The motherboard has enough space for two sockets, but it had to be modified specifically for this CPU.
To give it a gaming taste, the system was equipped with custom water cooling and GSkill Trident Z memory. Speaking of memory, this motherboard has 6 slots, does it indicate 6-channel support? Probably.
The purpose of this demo was to tell us that upcoming HEDT CPU from Intel has more cores and clocks higher than Ryzen Threadripper. Meanwhile AMD is planning to give us an update on 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper tomorrow.
