Intel will launch an insane 28-core CPU in Q4 2018

Intel launched an 18-core CPU last year, and at Computex 2018 the company served up a teaser for a 28-core single-socket CPU that's launching later this year.

Intel didn't share a lot of details regarding the upcoming CPU, but it did run a live demo during the presentation of the processor crunching through Cinebench R15. The 28-core CPU netted a score of 7334, which is pretty fantastic.

  • Ups, wrong topic
  • wow
  • Gonna cost an arm and a leg unfortunately
  • It would only be insane if prices well,nothing new there
  • It's as if their engineering team decided to go Super Saiyan Level 5 on CPU design lol
  • Knowing intel it will have only 24 PCIe lanes or something stupid like that.
  • Since Intel cannot go down on nm spectrum, it has no choice but to increase the number of cores...!
  • @netmann; Yeah, that's logical...
  • I have yet to see a 10 core CPU and they are introducing a 28. That is some leaping announcement. Yet, not to be outdone with the announcement I am sure it will equally be a leaping out of the pocket $ just to keep it all balance. Interesting as it is AMD maybe about to make a pitch of their own where Intel is trying to steal the spotlight. We'll just have to stay tune...
  • AMD's response: We're going 32
