future CPUs from AMD and Intel by [email protected]
Looks like Ryzen has got Intel's complacent bowels unblocked. They are bringing out an "i9" with 12 cores. But AMD will be competing with "Threadripper" a 16-core beast. Unfortunately, it seems that will use the 4000-pins server socket. So I can't see it being cheap.

Almost all WannaCry victims were running Windows 7 by Anonymous Remailer (austria)

Talking about grapefruits and watermelons by Flasherly[_2_]

Bank the core eight in the socket by Flasherly[_2_]
