We recently received Confirmation from Intel Herself The reports The numbers about a processor with ten physical cores (and with 20 logical cores using the hyper-threading technology it carries) which is expected to reach the top of Intel's new extreme processors, the Broadwell-E. Recently We even received a launch date: June 2016.
Now these reports tell of another breakthrough that this processor will record, except for a larger number of cores: it may break the traditional 999 dollar limit for the flagship processor of Intel In the extreme series, and reach an unprecedented price tag and not insignificant of 1,500 dollars.
In direct conversion, this is about NIS 6,000, but this is the price (and even more) that we usually see for all the processors The latest Intel products priced in the 999 regionTherefore, in order to give some proportions: its price tag in Israel is not expected to drop from NIS 8,000 at any point, and even to reach the area 9,000 shekels.
The addition of these 500 dollars not only places those who have sought this processor in an uncomfortable economic situation,Core The 7-core i6900 8K is in the $ 999 range, which can seep down towards the entire hierarchy and even give theCore i7 6800K The "simple" first understands a price tag higher than 500 dollars. All that remains is to wait and see.
