add the v5
it 18 cores 36threads, and can handle 128gb's of ddr4, plus is unlocked
ya and normally u have to run these cpu's in pairs (its a server board) so thats why most of the time u see the benchmark at 36 cores and 72 threads
Usually, the text says the quantity of cores. I guess the unusual number simply couldn't be indicated in the same way.
it was originally a 7000 dollar chip man . why is it hard to understand . 18 cores . with hyperthreading ... so 2 threads per core = 36 threads . its simple
its a bean with bacon megarocket
"Processing Cores" Please, forgive me if I'm missing something, but I don't understand how this is supposed to make any sense. According to Intel, this is an eighteen-core CPU. I just find that odd.
