It now seems that Intel intends to promote these processors in full retail packaging. As was found on Twitter, the elements have been already on show on the Tokyo Tech Plaza in Japan for a staggering $ 3880 (plus eight% JPY gross sales tax).
The brand new Intel big with an introduced RCP of $ 2999 is now obtainable (and on Twitter by) Tsukomo PC Honten, a pc retailer in Tokyo, Japan.
The shop sells the CPU for ¥ 459000, which is $ 3880 for gross sales of Japanese gross sales tax.

That didn’t forestall some retailers from having to attend for motherboard orders to promote the board, maybe alone, as an OEM half. The motherboard was launched on ShopBLT and CompSource priced at $ 1728 and $ 1799, respectively.
With that stated, a number of customers researched the brand new Dominus Excessive BIOS code and examined the related microcode patches for enabling the W-3175X. It was recommended that the suitable microcode enabling the CPU could possibly be transferred to a different LGA3647 motherboard such because the ASUS WS-C621E-SAGE, however nobody right now tried to break an costly CPU and costly motherboard.
