    Soooo, now that you can build a gaming PC with KNL and a 980Ti: which engine can scale to 384 threads? *tongue pierces cheek*

    Easy, you run some physics and compute stuff etc. on the 980 Ti and a software rasterizer on the KNL.

    Having two distinct memory type PHYs on a chip is going to eat quite a lot of that huge die.

    The nice photo of the KL wafer at Anandtech is detailed enough to see the repeated core pattern inside each die, and maybe if you zoomed in and counted pixels you could estimate the fraction of the die covered by cores. The cores themselves seem to dominate the area (as expected).
