Daniel Dogeanu says:

It’s funny because when they launched multi-core processors they already had 80 real-cores prototypes. It’s really sad they hold technology back for the sake of that stupid Moore’s Law, which isn’t even real.

cyberjack says:

“I” Series is confusing a stupid .. the number has nothing to do with how many cores …would make more sense .. .. i liked good old days were Pentium was king, Celeron sucked ass and AMD just overheated lol .. Besides all that makes no difference if thy come out with 100 cores am sure Microsoft will have “windows 15” or whatever by then sucking 99 cores as usual hahaha

Yu Jay says:

Why do they have so little PCI-E Lanes?
Surely my 1080 Ti GPU, x2 M.2 Card and Sound Card etc will bottle my GPU..?
