These both have the same architect, but core for core, it looks like the D-1700 is faster and more power efficient. For example, compare the D-1736NT and D-2733NT, where both have the same 8c/16t and 15mb cache. D-2733 uses 19% more power (at least on paper), but is 29% slower base clock.

Why is there such huge discrepancies? Ok, it has double the memory channel and pci-e lanes, but this surely can't be why it takes a hit on clock speed and more power hungry.

The CPUs are launched, but I'm hoping it's not a year out until it's available for purchase, given the silicon shortage and reservations going to hyperscalers first.

TDP is not average power consumption.
D-1736NT 2 memory channels (D-2733NT has 4)
D-1736NT 16 PCIe lanes (D-2733NT has 32)
D-1736NT 256GB max. memory size (D-2733NT 1TB)
