Relabled Xeons, just like all the previous generations. Same socket and same
number of memory channels, it's just marketing.
The 8 core variety has been out since 2014 (like the i7-5960X), and the 10 core
variety since 2016 (i7-6950X for $1700). The 6 core (i7-3930k) goes back to
2011. With the new AMD competition Intel has been marketing these niche chips
They are generally silly expensive from a price/perf point of view.
