Intel is having a bit of an identity crisis with its top-tier consumer processors, now known as the X-Series. The High-End Desktop (HEDT) platform was recently made up of only Core i7 CPUs but now includes Core i5 and the new Core i9 brand. These models have always commanded a hefty price premium and were your only option if you wanted more than four CPU cores or had a workload that demanded any serious processing grunt. As recently as last year Intel was happily charging up to Rs. 1,69,000 for a top-end 10-core CPU – that's just the processor. If your time is valuable, this is what you had to pay to get work done quickly. Watch the video for more on the most powerful Intel desktop processor in India today.
