8-core Intel Processor leaked
Today an unreleased Intel 8 core Sandy Bridge processor was posted to eBay and taken down shortly afterward. It was priced at a hefty $1359.99. Is this a look into the future of computer processing, or just a lame fake. If this is real, it's crazy. It's common knowledge that a quad-core i5 works very well for gaming, so this just begs to ask, is this a little unreasonable? Does the world really need this much processing power? And is the $1359.99 price tag justifiable? For that much money, you can build an extremely impressive PC. Nonetheless I'm sure there are enthusiasts that would be rushing out to buy it no matter what the price is.
