    Intel X599 Chipset to Drive 28-core HEDT+ Platform

    Inb4 AMD responds with "X699" platform that has 8-channel memory and 128-lane PCIe. With 8-channel memory and slightly higher clocks, you get a processor that could be tangibly faster than 2990WX (due to much lesser memory latencies for multi-threaded tasks), to compete with Intel's 28-core.

    The introduction of 32-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX at $1,799 has demolished the competitiveness of the similarly priced Core i9-7980XE, forcing Intel to "productize" its Skylake-X XCC (extreme core-count) silicon for the client-segment. We've already seen one or two motherboards for this...

    VIA C3 Processors Compromised by a Simple Shell Command

    VIA processors probably make up an infinitesimal amount of the desktop PC market-share, and its makers market the chip only at pre-built machines such as digital-signage kiosks, information kiosks, ticket vending machines, ATMs, etc (which don't need a lot of processing power).
