The new Xeon W-3175X has arrived in the Tokyo Tech Plaza in Japan, at a converted $3880 - above its $2999 retail price. The only motherboard that supports Intel's new Xeon W-3175X is the ASUS Dominus Extreme, so you'll need to buy one of those after you've just dropped this wad of cash on the unlocked 28C/56T chip. ASUS has said that its new Dominus Extreme motherbaord is only available through system integrators.
But then there are some retailers listing the new ASUS Dominus Extreme motherboard as an OEM-only part with a gigantic $1728-$1799 depending on the listing at ShopBLT and CompSource.
