    Intel rolls out its first consumer CPU to offer a teraflop of compute power.
    This time last year, Intel rolled out the Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition, its first 10-core desktop CPU aimed at retail consumers. The processor was based on the Broadwell-E architecture, and retailed for $1,723. The company is now following it up with the Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition, an 18-core/36-thread CPU that will retail later this year for $1,999. The 7980XE is also the first consumer chip from Intel to offer a teraflop of compute power.

    Now this CPU is for people that want to go above and beyond the enthusiast boundaries.

    The Intel Core i7 is already powerful enough as it is (as I have an i7), heck even an i5 is good enough for about anything.

    Until I saw this article, I honestly thought the i7 was the biggest and baddest CPU to date.

    It was (on Intel's lineup), I still can't believe they're actually making i9 processors now, 🤦🏽

    Lately, people have been switching to AMDs Ryzen 7 processors since it's suppose to compete with Intel's i7 processors.
