Computing performance until the doctor comes that is synonymous with the machine 8 the maxim again when it is about the processor. Intel has always made the race for the coveted CPU space in our Super-PC.
At AMD, AMD could once again be in the lead with the Ryden 8: At the beginning of March 2017, AMD launched a promising octagon at the start that could offer Intel’s Kaby Lake Paroli.
For a pure-bred gaming PC, a quad-core with the highest possible clock frequency would be ideal, since almost all games can use no more than four processor cores at the same time.
The Hell Machine 8 wants, however, more than “only” the fastest game PC of the Milky Way, it is also to provide as a numerator maximum achievements. That’s why we could also go back to the ten-core Intel Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition or Intel Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition.
We go one step further this year and install a workstation motherboard with two CPU sockets. So that the clock frequency does not come short, two Intel Xeon E5-2643 v4 with 3.4 GHz base clock would increase the number of CPU cores to a dozen.
Unit price: around 1700 euros with 16 cores brings the 3.2 GHz fast duo from two Intel Xeon E5-2667 v4 with. Unit price: around 2200 euros and who knows is perhaps AMD will be able to get the first workstation processors out of the hat with the Zen microarchitecture in time for the Hell machine 8.
