Knowing full well that AMD would be showing a 32-core Threadripper CPU during Computex 2018, Intel created a diversion to steal some of AMD’s thunder a day early, showing unreal Cinebench numbers from a suspecting 28-core 5GHz CPU that is not a real product.
As a gamer, my quad-core @ 4.0Ghz base clock seems like it's going to be doing fine for several more years. This insane core count stuff is for people who need a beefy workstation. So... good for them... but it's irrelevant to me.
Intel just got owned by AMD yet again. seems like a running trend with the most recent range of processors.
