My initial response would be :
"Because I want the best" not middle of the road.
Now , I might be wrong , but I'm pretty sure a 2x Xeon 6144 will ******* destroy the 16 core TR.Hard to say, it's not out yet.
In reality , It's an issue of future proofing.
Intel's socket p (3647) is setup for a while.....If I spend the cash now , this rig will be good for many years.....I don't see the same development from the TR at the moment.
I'm certainly not saying no to AMD , I've owned many of their CPU's , but as it sits , I'm ordering that MOBO next week.
