I would think the new Threadrippers would have the same BIOS feature that the Ryzen 3900X has with the ability to turn off CCD's for better gaming. Shouldn't be much longer to find out I think. The paper announcement will probably come later this year. Whether actual silicon makes it to distribution is the question. Certainly by 1Q 2020.

I only have one temperature available on my 2920X. I stay below 68° C. all the time with all cores loaded. Most of the time I run around 67.5° C.

C++ compilers really likes quad channel but will new threadripper be good in gaming as the ryzen 9?

I expect to see the base threadripper starting from 24 cores to not compete with 3950x, but can a 24 cores threadripper compete in gaming with a ryzen 9?

What do you think?

The gpu load is fast variable since any card is starting and finishing a task in 30-60 seconds, so rarely do all four cards have loading occurring at the peak time in the task across all four gpus. Would be different if all cards were engaged in long term rendering or similar. I do have my GTX 1080 Ti power limited to 215W from 250W since it does not impact the crunching time much if any.

So you don't need to worry about the new Threadrippers being inadequate in the core clock department.

Great find ! CPU clocks aren't my concern, though...PSU limits w/ two power-hungry w-cooled 2080 TIs are (each measured @ close to 400w+), even with a 1300w platinum-rated PSU. Of course, I could always upgrade to a 1600w+ PSU model, but I really do not want to pluck the sig-rig apart after less than a year...still, both 32c and 64c next-gen TR look mighty fine

I know that most of the threadripper users are not interested in it but I don't know if a 32 cores could be good for gaming.

I want to work on my PC but I would like to game on it too. Mmmm

Hard decision this time

I use the 2950X for both work + 'some' play with all-core daily @ 4.25G / 3466 CL14 RAM and have zero complaints. The next-gen TR with IPC improvements and updated memory handling could be a monster though, especially the 32c.
