Origin PC, Velocity Micro jump on Intel's 10-core processor

Now that Intel has formally trotted out Core i7 Excessive Version processors based mostly on its shiny new Broadwell-E platform, gaming PC makers are popping out of the woodwork with methods that tout these additional-quick chips. You will now discover as much as a ten-core processor in fashions from Origin PC (the Chronos, Genesis, Millennium and Neuron) and Velocity Micro (the Raptor Z95, Raptor Signature Version and ProMagix HD80). In case you wish to run a number of apps directly or use software program that thrives on multi-core CPUs (resembling video editors), you are in paradise.

Get able to pay a tidy sum for one in every of these methods. Origin hasn’t talked about pricing for Excessive Version-outfitted fashions as I write this, however Velocity Micro notes that the bottom-value PC of its bunch, the ProMagix HD80, begins at $1,799 (and that is doubtless with out the ten-core CPU). That is virtually par for the course, thoughts you. Should you’re the type who would not flinch at paying $600-plus for a GeForce GTX 1080 video card, springing for an Excessive Version processor is not that a lot of a stretch.
