Core-blimey! Intel's Core i9 18-core monster – the numbers


Re: Gamers?

I can't remember the exact words, unfortunately, but he did say something about it during a TV interview with Sue Lawley back in the late 80s. It was in a discussion where he explained Microsoft philosophies such as "New releases are not there to fix bugs, they are there to add features" and he mentioned that either 640K was not a barrier to software development or that 640K was adequate for the intended use of a PC. If I recall correctly this was about the time of the release of the first extended memory boards and of a version of Lotus 123 that demanded the extra memory. It was also the time that the business unit I was in flipped to using Macs with 4 or 8 Mb of memory and Excel because 123 was creaking at the seams.
