p I think it was The Pixies that said “If man is an i5, then God is an i7” — or something like that.

But, regardless, Intel is allegedly preparing to show us what i9 is and AMD will have a competitor of its own.
/p p Intel is preparing to reveal a new line of Core i9 processors for enthusiasts that will feature six-or-more cores, according to a leaked image on the AnandTech forums.
AMD, meanwhile, is planning to launch its Threadripper CPUs that feature 10-or-more cores in June, according to a report on WCCFTech.
These new chips should compete directly against one another as the new high-end chips for consumers looking to build extremely capable rigs.
