And I am so sorry, I was the one who predicted AMD could go to 16C/32T, and I bash those who disagree with me. Please go through my post history and check before you make such baseless judgement. Thanks.
You have nothing to support your claims that it can’t happen. Now all of a sudden you claim you were saying 16c on AMD *would* happen when I distinctly remember conversing with someone who said it couldn’t happen who for some strange reason had the same icon as you.
You have nothing to claim it can’t happen, we’ve already established that:
A. memory bandwidth isn’t an issue (TR4 has no bandwidth issue with 2400mhz RAM and 32 cores, just a latency issue) (5000Mhz RAM exists)
B. pin count isn’t an issue ( The IO die can and has taken care of that)
C. power delivery isn’t an issue (A320 boards mor now support the 3950X)
D. Size of chiplet (Could easily fit with a 10% die-reduction let alone a 30% die-reduction
So what’s the issue? Your feelings? Because it seems like the issue is your feelings.
Now you’re hoping AMD increases the costs of their motherboards by throwing in completely unneeded Quad-channel memory on Zen 4 when they’ll already be hoping on DDR5. (5200Mhz standard JEDEC speed)
Whether or not AMD WILL end up releasing a 24-core on AM4 is one thing to argue about, but saying it CAN’T is pure fantasy on your end.
And if a 16-core AM4 part doesn’t hit a limit on AM4, why not an 18-core, a 20-core, etc?
The only reason it might not happen is if AMD pulls an intel and decides to Keep those core counts for HEDT simply to make more money
