Intel Apple's television ads for its new Macs boast that for years, Intel's chips have been "trapped inside PCs - dull little boxes, dutifully performing dull little tasks." Now, the voiceover proclaims, the Intel processor will finally be set free. Of course, that's not exactly the way Intel would put it. "Never would we characterize our customers that way."

32 core cpus sound interesting, was it for some kind of supercomputer?

they were used for simulations and AI stuff.
iirc the smalest box you could buy had 1024 cores.
