oct 1, 2017 - The best intel chip as of now was made for gamers.
The intel 9th gen processor is the best chip intel has to offer for consumers as of today.Offering up to 20 cores and overclocking on chips with an X or K in the name.Also it has up to 40 threads on it depending on the one you get.(Again not my opinion I also said that intel offered.I didn't say of all time I said intel.)
