The AMD Naples Pricing & Availability
You may wonder why AMD compared the Naples CPU against the 22-core Intel Xeon E5-2699A v4, instead of a more powerful processor like the Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4. We suspect it is because they are going to price the Naples CPU against the Xeon E5-2699A v4, which costs US$ 4,938.
Imagine how well it will sell if it’s priced at the same or slightly lower price point than the Xeon E5-2699A v4, while offering 45% more cores, 60% more I/O capacity and 122% more memory bandwidth. If we have to guess, we would think that AMD will finally price the Naples CPU at around $4,000 – a 20% discount on the Xeon E5-2699A v4.
More importantly, AMD appears to be on track for a Q2 2017 launch for the Naples CPU. We will keep you updated![adrotate group=”1″]
