EPYC is primarily aimed at the server market where performance-per-watt is king. In the desktop market, efficiency is sacrificed for outright performance - which tends to suit desktop-class applications where workloads (such as rendering, software compilation) benefit from the increased clock speeds on offer. If AMD only wanted EPYC in high-end desktop and professional workstations, Threadripper simply would not exist.
