(Very) high-end processor
Is your server slow? Are calculations endless? Good news: Intel has just unveiled the processor for you! The E7-8894 v4, of the Xeon family, can be yours for US$8,898. You will have guessed that it is meant not for your run-of-the-mill computer, but for servers handling large databases. For the price, you get a 14nm, 24 core processor with 60MB of cache that runs at 2.4GHz. The processor can address nothing less than 24TB of memory (24,000GB). Intel promises record-breaking speed.
