    What I found most interesting is

    1. 20+ hour battery life in Laptop - It looks like Intel is acting of Vaporware - Windows on ARM

    2. 28 Core EMIB - does this mean we have 28 core laptop coming in the future. One thing it surely means is that EMIB is the future - maybe even in desktops.

    Such an amazing event thanks https://www.anandtech.com for sharing the review

    After looking into Intels 28-core 56-thread CPU .. it looked like Intel scrambled to put something together rather than have something readily available. A closer look reveals it uses the same socket set as the 8176 and 8180 Intel Xeon Platinum Socket LGA 3647 at 28 Cores and 56 Threads. It's basically a Xeon overclocked to 5Ghz and rigged with an extreme cooling solution (Chiller) to keep from frying the chip. Considering this socket type and CPU this will be a very niche market for people that want to spend $7,000 to $10,000 on a server CPU alone versus maybe $1700 to $1900 for the new Threadripper 2? I also found it sketchy at best that Intel wouldn't show the physical processor where AMD gladly displayed it's product. Does Intel really have a next generation processor to compete with AMD or is this a smoke screen to buy time for Q3? It seems apparent that Intel does not have real consumer grade processor to compete with Threadripper 2 as of yet.
