A 28 core 3.0 GHz monolithic die will have better performance than an AMD 28 core 3.0 GHz chiplet

. . .

Intel 28 Core Xeon Platinum 8180 Server/Workstation CPU/Processor

£9,508.49 each.

Item currently awaiting an ETA == vapourware

AMD EPYC 7601 32-Core, 64 thread Processor

£3,999.00 each

Released June 2017 == Buy it now. (literally; it's available on Amazon)

So Intel is hoping that their not quite released vapourware is going to be competitive with AMD's current 18 month old hardware with 4 cores disabled? Yep, sounds about right.

As does the fact that despite having superior and cheaper hardware AMD processors are almost impossible to buy through normal sales channels, which doubtlessly has nothing to do with Intel.
