A CPU which is believed to be a 28-core 56-thread Skylake-EP V5 CPU has been pictured, a CPU which will use Intel's upcoming LGA 3647 socket. 
 

some recent rumours are suggesting that the largest Skylake-EP series CPUs will have 32-cores and 64-threads, though this remains unconfirmed and should be considered as nothing but a rumour. Right now the largest Intel Xeon CPU has 22 cores and 44 threads, which will make the move to Skylake-EP a huge upgrade for the HPC market.

Alongside the change to the LGA 3647 socket is also the rumoured move to a 6-channel memory system,  greatly increasing the maximum memory bandwidth that is available to end users. This upgrade in memory bandwidth will not mean very much to traditional PC applications but will be very important to the server and HPC market, who are moving a lot of additional data into memory and capacities continue to increase. 

Below is a picture which showcases an Intel Broadwell-E CPU beside Intel's new LGA 3647 socket, showcasing the socket's huge increase in size compared to LGA 2011-V3 as well as the socket's hex-channel memory system.

Skylake-EP will be using the same 14nm process as the CPU's desktop counterparts, explaining why the CPU required an increase in size to accommodate an increase in core count when compared to Broadwell-EP.

I do not want to know what the pricing is going to be in this CPU.

It may even come in at a higher price than a 6950X which is a complete rip off IMO.Quote

This is why we desperately need AMD to have Zen be kick ass or Intel will continue to raise prices.

Based on that socket picture either this socket will not be for regular consumers or AIO manufacturers are seriously going to have to up their game and make monstrous sized AIO's.Quote

Apples and oranges. This is a server cpu used in server farms.Quote
