    i7-5960X, -5930K And -5820K
    They use the 2011-v3 socket which (I think) is based on the X99 chipset.

    Seems like you could put together a the pieces for $1,200 PLUS CPU (round numbers).

    i7-5960X (8/16), -5930K (6/12) And -5820K (6/12) CPU $1,000, $600, $400

    Motherboard $300 to $400
    Graphics board $200 (example .... NVDA GeForce GTX 750 Ti)
    16GB DDR4 2666 (PC4-21300) memory $300
    Case and P/S $300

    Yep. Looks like an 8-core + hyperthreading DDR4 CPU. Its $999 price tag is inline with parts it is replacing.

    Intel turns its attention to desktop performance, unveils 8-core Haswell-E processor
    Michael Brown Aug 29, 2014 9:00 AM

    Intel took the wraps off its most powerful consumer CPU at the PAX video-game conference in Seattle, WA, today. Intel’s Core i7 High-end Desktop Processor Family, code-named Haswell-E, consists of three unlocked processors that support hyperthreading, DDR4 memory, and Intel’s all-new X99 chipset.

    The top-of-the-line Core i7-5960X boasts eight cores (16 processor threads), 20MB of cache, and 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes. This $999 processor runs at a base clock frequency of 3.0GHz and torques up to 3.5GHz in turbo mode.

    Almost went red. Dropped below $34.50 + dividend for a few minutes but stayed green. Now tracking the market and up 0.4%.

    Couple questions ...... if someone might know the answer.

    "10 times more than CPUs needed in units."
    What does a 3G modem connect to the 3G network if it is NOT connecting a "CPU" ??

    How does this compare to the previous smallest modem?

    I went looking for some images of 2.5D and found the Intel patent.

    X-line routing for dense multi-chip-package interconnects
    US 20140117552 A1

    Abstract
    X-line routing arrangements for dense multi-chip-package interconnects are described. In an example, an electronic signal routing structure includes a substrate. A plurality of layers of conductive traces is disposed above the substrate. A first pair of ground traces is disposed in a first of the plurality of layers of conductive traces. A signal trace is disposed in a second of the plurality of layers of conductive traces, below the first layer. A second pair of ground traces is disposed in a third of the plurality of layers of conductive traces, below the first layer. The first and second pairs of ground traces and the signal trace provide an X-pattern routing from a cross-sectional perspective.

    Hey alex: 2.11 put/call ratio

    alexander.dumbass alexander.dumbass Aug 27, 2014 11:14 AM Flag

    "I never found IV correlated to anything with at a level of significance that would make ya money."
    Sort of, ..... Peace of mind has value and keeps me calm. It helps explain a lot of the Intel stock price movement. Knowing what is moving Intel stock price AND the sticky price points allows me to read the "Intel is tanking" posts with a chuckle rather than a panic.

    "I betcha you don't trade on that theory. Ya gotta be on the inside, or know somebody who is, to make money playing that game."
    If you are talking about IV only, then you are right. The IV simply one metric to confirm that a PUT trade is a BUY or a SELL. Knowing that helps me confirm what is pressuring Intel stock.

    In general, knowledge is a good thing. It proves me calmness and comfort when the people on this board start their efforts to pressure trades. IMO, a corrupt behavior on their part.

    INTC PUT/CALL Ratio 2.11

    alexander.dumbass alexander.dumbass Aug 27, 2014 4:11 AM Flag

    I have not seen anything that indicates that Intel either buys their own shares OR uses puts.

    I have asked the Intel Investor Relations and they have indicated that Intel contracts with an agent. Intel is being sued by what is left of Lehman Bros and the lawsuit describes in detail the terms that Lehman agreed to return shares. They were given $1 billion and they agree to purchase shares at some percentage below the average volume weighted share price over the term. It is interesting reading.

    Google:
    "Intel 10k Lehman Brothers lawsuit"

    "Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and Lehman Brothers OTC Derivatives Inc. v. Intel
    In May 2013, Lehman Brothers OTC Derivatives Inc. (LOTC) and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. (LBHI) filed an adversary complaint in the United States Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York asserting claims against us arising from a 2008 contract between Intel and LOTC. Under the terms of the 2008 contract, we prepaid $1.0 billion to LOTC, in exchange for which LOTC was required to deliver to us on or before September 29, 2008, quantities of Intel common stock and cash determined by a formula set forth in the contract. LOTC's performance under the contract was secured by $1.0 billion of cash collateral. Under the terms of the contract, LOTC was obligated to deliver approximately 50 million shares of our common stock to us on September 29, 2008. LOTC failed to deliver any Intel common stock or cash, and we exercised our right of set-off against the $1.0 billion collateral. "

    "Assuming you're not hedging, calls are a Bear's gambit, not puts."
    8-) I guess we disagree.

    "Gawd, how much longer must I suffer these quantitative fools, huh?"
    I suspect you will suffer until you understand the concepts. IMO, nothing that a little DD on your part would not cure.

    "that ratio is not necessarily a bearish signal."
    Correct. I regularly say that and is one regular complaint about the metric. HOWEVER, when the put/call ratio gets out of whack, I go looking to see if there are any unusual volume trades. Today, there was.

    "In fact, it's the best way to buy a stalk on the cheap, "
    Correct again. I regularly say that. If you review my postings, I frequently recommend SELLING PUT options and I did it today in another thread today.

    "Assumption: You sold the Put"
    You can make your assumption but it would be a bad assumption for the 30k contracts today. I looked at the BID/ASK SIZE (more buyers or sellers) and the IMPLIED VOLATILITY (is the option premium being bid up or sold down) to make my assumption. Your assumption is inconsistent with the data I observed today.

    The number of contracts that someone wanted to BUY (the BID SIZE) was 2,000 contracts for the series.
    The number of contracts that someone wanted to SELL (the ASK SIZE) was 100 contracts.
    There were many, many more interested buyers than sellers when I looked.

    The IMPLIED VOLATILITY is related to the option PREMIUM. If the IM is higher than the surrounding series, then BUYERS are more likely. If the IM is lower, then SELLERS are more likely. The IV of that series was 15% higher than the series above and below. The IV pointed to BUYERS.

    Based on the BID/ASK SIZE difference AND the elevated IV, they were being BOUGHT and NOT sold.

    They could be put writers.

    I look at 2 things when I make my guess. It is not fool proof no matter what the talking heads say.
    1. does it look like there are more sellers or buyers
    2. what is the implied volatility compared with similar options ... lower IV means sellers and higher IV means buyers

    When I looked at the series, the BID SIZE was 3,000 contracts. The ASK SIZE was 100.
    IV was slightly higher at the time.

    P/C ration is normally around 0.5 and is 4x that normal.
    Volume in the Sept 20th $34 put options is currently 30.5k and it appears that someone is buying puts at 30 cents. The Sept 20th target date is after BOTH Intel IDF and IFA2014 in Germany.

    It appears like downside insurance OR a bet that Intel will drop after the two events.

    The large volume PUT buying pressures the options market maker to short Intel to keep his position as neutral as possible.

  • alexander.dumbass alexander.dumbass Aug 26, 2014 2:19 PM Flag

    Lots of rumors and looks like more will be known in Sept at IDF or IFA.

    DOH! 8-) You are correct. They only allow CASH COVERED PUTS in the IRA.

    Then you could sell the SEPT 20th $34.50 CALL for 76 cents.
    If it is called, you would get $34.50 + 0.76 = $35.26 and have some downside protection.

    If not called then you pocket the 76 cents.

    Sell your shares for the current $34.74 and then WRITE a JAN $30 PUT option for 45 cents.
    You get $34.74 + 0.45 = $35.19.
    You then have to buy back INTC in January if it trades below $30 ... or you can just roll out the Jan puts ... or close the position earlier .....

    Level 3 option trading means that the short puts doesn't put your cash on hold.

    sej ... I just noticed this ... I think your comment for the convertible note thread ... my theory about trading in Intel stock is vague and some behavior seems to be predictable but I have not determined a specific cause-effect relationship.

    Intel issued convertible notes that are dividend protected.
    Barclays seems to issue something called REVERSE convertible notes, too.

    I just used "arbitrage" because the Investopedia article used the word. I agree with the article that the CB are related to a high short interest ratio in Intel. The CB investors can short Intel, the coupon rate more than covers paying the dividend AND the conversion price continues to drop.

    With this large, 146 million, shares of conversion shares, there is a riskless supply of CB shares that can be used to short/cover short term position. IMO, that is why any analyst who has a price target below $21.94 is forgetting about these shorts.

    The overall game with Intel trading seems to be ....
    1. a supply of riskless shorts
    2. a high dividend which has to be priced into complementary CALL/PUT series. The call/put series expiring the day after ex-dividend have to have a combined premium greater than the dividend.

    I don't have the answer .... just more questions.

    I was not playing devil's advocate, I was simply pointing out that your "one person/ID system" was not possible for Yahoo to implement and gave one example. It is OK for us to disagree. This is not a very important issue.

    "Simple,one person/ID system period, ..."
    What about a shared system where multiple people can login?
    Your "simple" solution would say that only one of those users could login to Yahoo at a time.

    Would Yahoo return an error "You are already logged in" but you can't see any of your account information?
