Intel Responds to AMD "Threadripper"

Intel has been playing catch-up with AMD lately in terms of processor launches, and it's interesting that up to now, Intel's answer was to simply overclock their current CPUs, consume more energy, produce more heat and call it a new CPU. Then AMD announced the massive 16-core 32-process "Threadripper" and Intel has once again had to respond. This time, it seems that they are taking a server chip and pushing it to their mainstream. The Core i9 will be launched with up to 18-cores and 36-threads. No other information is available as they are simply trying to see if they can do what they hope. AMD is setting the bar. Let's hope this continues.
