AMD Is In Danger, Intel's 18-core, 36-thread Desktop Processor Is In The Works
The summer season is already heating up and the high-end desktop processor market is also making its firing competitions. AMD and Intel are reportedly doing battle with Ryzen and other smaller chips. In fact, AMD is now in danger because Intel is now working on its 18-core, 36-thread desktop processor.
For the record, it has been a long time since the last time Intel came out with a new CPU lineup. Although the American multinational corporation updates its processor regularly every year, its product categories remain the same. These groups are the Core i3 for budget PCs, the Core i5 for the majority of consumers and the Core i7 for those mystical “power users.”
Starting this year, the lineup goes up to i9, as reported by BGR. An earlier rumor had suggested that Intel will be presenting the Core i9 lineup this month. However, a new leak of specs sheet has details. According to the sheet, there will be multiple Core i9 models with a powerful 18-core version.
Intel's Core i9 appears to be the originate for a new wave of a very powerful CPU processors, named as the Core X series. The X series is assumed to come in different chips such as Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 variants, going from 8 up to 18 cores. The top notch on all the listed products is the Core i9-7980XE, which has 18 cores and 36 threads that should be the fastest and most powerful consumer chip on the market once it launches.
According to Forbes, it seems that Intel is planning for a far more potent line-up of processors and that the 18-core, 36-thread part obviously stands out compared to AMD. Especially in terms of cores and threads, the American multinational semiconductor company should be thrilled to avoid danger. AMD recently released a series of well-received Ryzen chips that take on Intel seriously for the first time in years, and the field guide has a new line of “Threadripper” processors, intended for serious parallel processing to come soon.
