I wouldn't bother if you're looking at this for the Cannonlake aspect; certainly not in August 2019.

What you'd be doing is getting to play around with a fraction of the new instruction sets coming with SNC/ICL; a fraction that doesn't correspond to a configuration that anyone is ever going to have with any volume. That is, you're not going to have a bunch of key users down the line who have VBMI but not VBMI2, GFNI, BITALG, etc.
