    Intel goes 'extreme' with first i7 10-core processor

    I doubt that I'll ever need it but who knows.

    http://www.cnet.com/news/intel-first...59341748746160

    You'll find all those cores in Intel's top Extreme Edition chip, the i7-6950X:

    10 cores, 20 threads
    8-core and 6-core options also available
    Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
    4-channel memory support
    25MB smart cache
    Fully unlocked (offering flexibility for overclockers)

    Do take note that it is a Broadwell Chip!

    Since KabyLake is coming on the market this quarter that makes it 2 Generations old. At $1,700 a pop (chip alone) I'll pass.

    Of course, I'd pass if it was a KabyLake processor too!

    I paid a little over a thousand for more 8 core. It's too bad this thing wasn't available at the time, I'd easily slap
    $1700 down.

    More heavy breathing.

    Mmmm... Deca-core!

    Reminds me of a programming seminar I attended years ago. A little supercomputer startup (Myrias Research) held a tech demo of how they actually created parallel software. It was fascinating then and still fascinates me now.
