Intel will launch a 28-core 5GHz CPU by the end of the year

(Engadget)— Intel’s 18-core i9 CPU is still impressive, but that’s last year’s news. Today at Computex, Intel SVP Gregory Bryant demoed a 28-core processor running at 5GHz.

It’s the first time we’ve seen a single socket desktop CPU cram in that many cores, and it’s certainly powerful. In Cinebench, it achieved a score of 7,334 on stage, something that’s only bested by multi-processor systems.

Better yet, Bryant says it’s not just a concept, as Intel plans to sell the 28-core CPU by the end of the year. Time to start saving.
