Maybe to add room for some 4c parts. Which would make the 16c part the 3900 series. That would place it in the X9XXx spot like the 2950x. I think it is actually better that way. especially if they are canceling zen 2 threadripper. And the 3400G was also leaked a while ago. Which is probably a 4c apu. So the 3600 being a 6C sounds more likely.
I'd like to see some ultra low powered chips. 15w-25w 4c chips. Probably the 300GE chips.
Didn't AMD already state that they didn't want to be stuck in the lower-end segments anymore? I mean, call me crazy, but if AMD produces something faster than Intel, they shouldn't have to resort to selling it for cheaper to maintain market share.
If this is true, I wouldn't mind seeing it sold for over $750. If its genuinely that much faster, then why should they hinder their own potential profit making?
TAM: Total Addressable Market
AMD are trying to increase market share in order to be the ones driving the technology. It's not just about having high performance parts but also selling them at a compelling enough price to pull market share away from Intel. AMD want to be the ones creating the SIMD standards and be the optimization standard in the production of Applications/Software/Games etc.
They've only mentioned it during every single conference call and at every single event.
