Three questions (well okay, four because Q2 is a two-parter):
- Does this finally have enough hardware mitigations for specultaive-execution attacks? Without them, all these hyperthreading improvements are meaningless because the vulnerability patches hurt performance and for a secure system, HT needs to be disabled in its entirety.
- Why do we need a new socket? It's still using DDR4, not DDR5 (that's AMD's excuse for changing to socket AM5) and it's still using PCIe 3.0. Is Intel unable to physically fit more than 8 cores on a package at 14nm?
- Is 10C the upper limit or are there hints that Intel have 12C and 16C models in the pipeline for later in 2020?
