Intel’s upcoming 12-core chip is rumored to be coming in at a substantially lower clock compared with its 10-core Core i9-7900X or AMD’s Threadripper. If this proves true, it may be difficult for the Core i9-7920X to match the competition.

Oracle Does the Cloud Dance


Sunday’s Oracle OpenWorld keynotes were good — especially when compared with prior years — but they still suffered from the perennial problem of trying to stuff too much content into a two-hour event.
