Intel announced its brand new Broadwell-E processor at Computex this year, but immediately after the 10-core CPU was unveiled eyebrows started to slowly raise. Why, for instance, was the new Extreme Edition CPU slower in raw power and a lower base frequency? Why was it hundreds of dollars more than the new GPUs announced by NVIDIA?

Who exactly did Intel think was going to buy this thing?


During Intel's keynote for Computex 2016, the chip manufacturer showcased a multiplayer VR experience called Raw Data. The game was playable at Intel's booth for the annual tech show, so naturally I had a go.

What I didn't expect to get was a nausea and queasiness that lasted for hours. What I expected even less was the fact that I enjoyed the game so much that I'd give it another go.
