I don't know about you guys, but i WANT that
Would Bios mod the h*ck out of it and work with CPPC to reduce thermals

No plans for Threadrippers right now, since those have a different socket and a TDP of up to 280W. With this kind of CPU TDP it's difficult to cram a dGPU in there, reducing the mass appeal of such a system. I'm sure that many users would love a Threadripper laptop with maybe a 50W GPU (think GTX 1650), coupled with one of the already existing 330W external power supplies. But would this sell enough in the mainstream gaming and creative professional market to warrant the investment?
Or...: how much would you be willing to reduce the CPU TDP while still maintaining good clock speeds? Where is the "Max-Q" sweet spot of 3990X? (honest question)
Hey Tom, glad to have you here
I think people would benefit from cuda more than from a bigger node GPU
It makes me think if RT cores on a 2070SP are even worth to use - because i can image most people would use it either for:
- Portable Compile powerhorse
- Portable LAN party hosting unit (it would need than 5gbit if possible or dual 2.5gbit)
- CAD render machine and business live demonstration unit (for architects or Car Manufactures)
- Dual powertable streaming machine, be it as backpack unit or game + render unit for the desk
It makes me think, could you guys even get a T-Topology 4x1 Channel PCB made for sTRX4 ?
Threadripper with CPPC and fixed powertarget of 180W (the 3960X i have in mind)
Would make a great workstation - expected 3.8Ghz allcore boost at near 0.95v with vSOC at 1025mV
This should in reality be perfectly acceptable and have huge surface area for cooling
But maan would this drive production cost high, and might go into the 4500$ range which is un-affordable
3K might work, but then PCB manufacturing cost would be far to high to make it worth
3900X and 3950X models are a great option i personal think
There's a lot of finetuning you can do to get at least 50-60W away from stock shipping CPUs without killing single % of performance
Looking forward to it~
