The Core i9 processor, the most powerful in the catalog of Intel, will be available starting September 25 at a price ranging from $1,200 to $2,000. In turn, the company led by Brian Krzanich plans to develop a new architecture for its server storage units under SSD technology that could have up to 1 petabyte of capacity.
Announced at the latest edition of Computex in Taipei, the Intel X-Series processors on the Core i9-7980XE with 18-cores will be priced at $2000, while the 16-core Core i9-7960X version will be priced Of $1700, followed by the i9-7940X versions of 14-cores to $1400 and i9-7920X from 12-cores to $1200, according to the statement released by Intel itself.
This offering of Intel processors, called X-Series, has five versions of the Core i9 line, called Extreme Edition, three Core i7 segment and one i5, targeting enthusiastic users, content creators and gamers who require the maximum performance of a computer with models of 4 to 18 cores.
In turn, Intel redesigned the solid-state storage units (SSDs) used in data centers with a prototype model called Ruler, an elongated rectangular-looking device unlike the 2.5 and 3 formats, 5 inches. In this version, which is not yet available on the market, allows a tray in a server rack to have a capacity of up to 1000 terabytes (TB).
The use of high-speed Intel Optane SSDs and 3D NAND SSDs in the Ruler system allows you to leverage the virtues of this low-heat and energy-efficient technology with a larger storage capacity of up to 1 petabyte (PB) in a server.
