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

Re: Gamers?

Even with Rizen you'll see better performance in games but it particularly shines when streaming or recording too. Having more cores just generally keeps things a lot smoother.

The problem I increasingly have with Intel isn't core, it's locking down functionality on boards artificially behind paywalls purely to market them as different models. That's why my next CPU will be AMD, right now I've got an i7-6700K which is no slouch for video processing but there's little reason to head back to Intel and pay the premium.
