NewsBot Posted May 31, 2016 Share Posted May 31, 2016 Chipset manufacturers have been boosting processing power by leaps and bounds in recent years. Now, Intel is going one better with the next-generation Broadwell-E chip family, its first ever 10-core desktop processor. You heard that right: Intel is going for "10-core" in its branding here, ditching the logical naming progression to "deca-core." Apparently, we don't need Latin with speeds like this chip promises. The company is targeting power users with its next "Extreme Edition" of Core i7 chips, saying they've been designed with gamers, VR fans, content creators and overclockers in mind. Intel calls these users "mega-taskers." Apparently if you're still just multitasking then you're doing it wrong. While Intel is talking the "extreme" talk, the company is more focused on iteration than revolution after announcing last year that it would be ditching its "Tick-Tock" product cycle in favor of a "Process, Architecture, Optimization" model.
