    Even for businesses, slapping the "mainstream" tag under a top-of-range twenty-eight core CPU seems misleading. Intel marketing game is on point.

    For context, I receive hardware data on database instances fairly regularly and the number of 16+ core CPU configurations is miniscule compared to 4 to 8 cores. That said, databases are a funny thing and not what 28 core CPUs are for. Oracle pricing strategies WHEEEEY

    So you can now technically build a 224 core, 448 thread PC with 2.5GHz base speed? Damn son

    It's nice that Hexus is only taking the real deal stuff from the release, but I find it more amusing to highlight the fact that Intel was running a smear campaign against AMD in their presentation xD

    I wouldn't call a $110,000+ 8-socket server a "personal computer"

    These processors would suck for playing KSP regardless of screen size
