Intel is on the verge of releasing an extremely expensive and powerful core i9 processor by end of June. The critical information has been leaked on a private tech forum where a partner or an employee posted pictures from a high-level Intel presentation which was in German. The presentation contains critical information about the plans of a new i9 processor.
The most powerful processor looks a total giant in the line-up and will at the moment only be available for laptops. It is going to contain 12 cores with a power consumption of 140W. The initial specs indicate that this is going to be the most powerful processor bar none.
The ‘Chosen Processor For Mac’?
Things however only get better, especially if you are someone who prefers Apple over other computer makers. There is a strong possibility that the Mac Pro will be having one of these new powerful processors. Apple has been on the lookout for new processors to ensure that their computers manage to maintain their superiority.
The initial estimate for price is on the high end and it may end up costing a ‘not so small’ fortune. We would not be surprised if the high end CPU is priced upward of $1,200 to say the least. With new processors already in the pipeline, we are expecting interesting things to be unveiled at the Computex 2017.
What is the Computex?
COMPUTEX is co-organized by government-funded Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and private sector Taipei Computer Association (TCA). The first expo, then called Taipei Computer Show, was held in 1981, and started out as a place where small and medium-sized businesses in Taiwan’s nascent computer industry could display their products. As Taiwan’s IT industry took off in the early 1990s, COMPUTEX has since rapidly expanded and become an important showcase for the IT industry globally. Now it has become the second largest Computer Expo in the world (after CeBIT) and the largest in Asia, with participation from major manufacturers such as Intel, AMD and others.
