This is huge! Desktops are getting the next big leap in processing power with Intel’s Core i7-6950X Broadwell-E processor which has 10 3.5 GHz cores (20 with HyperThreading). It’s been a couple years since we’ve had such a breakthrough. This was accomplished by shrinking the transistors again, now only a tiny 14 nm. Human hair is 0.017 to 0.18 mm thick… there are 1 million nanometers (nm) in a millimeter (mm). Unfortunately new emerging technology has a price, this processor is coming in around $1,500. Ouch. But wait a year and it should be affordable for people interested in beefing up their HEDTs (high-end desktops).
