Many years ago, we had a server with a DEC Alpha CPU that we could use for frying the bacon for our lunch.
The first demo prototypes of the Alpha machines came with a three phase power supply. Before the commercial release they managed to cut down the power requirement so much that a single-phase power supply was sufficient.

In geometry, a triacontadigon (or triacontakaidigon) or 32-gon is a thirty-two-sided polygon. In Greek, the prefix triaconta- means 30 and di- means 2. The sum of any triacontadigon´s interior angles is 5400 degrees. An older name is tricontadoagon.
Since all these prefixes are from ancient Greek, I presume the 32-core would be called a triacontakaiduo-core (cf. Greek Numbers and Numerals (Ancient and Modern). But honestly... if you want people to understand you, go for "thirtytwo-core"
Computer guys frequently are not aware of this, so they shorten down hexadecimal to hex, which is certainly not entymologically correct. Some day, but not yet, our language may have changed so that hex means 16 rather than 6.
We have a somewhat similar situation in Norway: Entymologically, 'kilo' means 'thousand', nothing more. In Norway, it has come to mean 'kilogram'. You buy two kilos of flour. The weight of your car is 1200 kilos. No Norwegian questions it. But when Norwegians speak English, and they ask for, say, two kilo pack of flour in the grocery store, they are not understood.
The day 'hex' has changed meaning from 6 to 16, how will you explain to your kid why a hexagon has only 6 sides?
