It's funny AMD hasn't actually increased core count ever since interlagos. Intel on the other hand futures 18 cores in their chips.
So stereotyping about something AMD may have done 5 years ago at which point HT wasn't as good as it is today yet doesn't make sense.
If Zen doesn't perform that is bad new for AMD and about the same news for every consumer that buys a new chip. Good luck paying 600 euros for a piece of silicon that with R&D costed less than 200 total to make.
Mind you, I would kill
be over the moon for an 18 core i7 desktop CPU. I would would meh at an AMD 18 core CPU.
