The last time we asked this question, six-core CPUs were a novelty. How times have changed. Fast forward to 2021 and the very best consumer parts pack an astonishing 16 cores and 32 threads, while those on a more modest budget can pick up eight-core 65W solutions from either AMD or Intel for under £300.

We'd imagine plenty of HEXUS readers went ahead and upped their core/thread count in recent years, so let's see where we're at by asking: how many cores does your desktop CPU have? Going by the answers to last week's question, we reckon most folk will have fewer cores than they do fans!

Eight
i7 9700K - 8 cores, 8 threads.
I have an i7-6900K with 8 cores / 16 threads
The wife has an i9-7940X with 14 cores / 28 threads
i7 9700k so 8 cores 8 threads
@Hexus if you make this a poll we can see the distribution

12 proper full-fat cores, 24 threads.
4/8 in my other machines
I have a mini box with 8/16 on order (at this rate it'll be obsolete by the time it arrives)
