If a comparable price will be used for the final version, I will buy one the day it is available.

It is not uncommon for big companies to "subsidize" the occasional prestigious project. While I am pretty sure that Intel would still make profit at $400, I strongly suspect they will want to milk their early adopters for much more.

I wonder how easy it will be to get complex programs running on this "efficiently". How is the supposed way currently? What does Intel recommend for programming these boards?
Better you leave here with your head still full of kitty cats and puppy dogs.

I don't know if i would want to redo a several 10000 line of code project via intrinsics (even if hidden within C++ wizardry).. ;)

i am working with that crap since two years now. no complex algo can fill the __m512 registers over time. so you have to go
with one of the > 200 threads and trust the compiler (great inorder stuff :-) ). you can expect the same disaster as we have
already today with gpus.
