Hopefully this is true and ThreadRipper is still on track for Q4. I've been itching to upgrade my board.

Interesting what the cache config they gonna choose for 16C and 32C, if they will offer 128MB 16C and 256MB 32C... :-)!

Isn't 7nm+ smaller so they can fit more chiplets? 96c/192t?

Renoir looks to be a game changer for mobile computing. And 64 cores with castle peak is just bonkers. But the good kind of bonkers.

Back on topic what are the odds the 4000 series will work on x4xx motherboards? I'm sticking with my 2700x for now, but next year I want to grab a 4000 series.

Well worse comes to worse I'll just get a 3000 on closeout.

Also really looking forward to Riverhawk. I want to build a mini nuc box. Gonna give it to a friend to put all the party console games weve accumulated over the years, so we can play everything from CoD to the original Golden Eye.

Anyways back on-topic: now that 3950X is a thing, how exactly is AMD going to pitch these Threadrippers? More PCIe lanes? (but 3- and 4-way mGPU have been dead for a few years now) MOAR COARZ? Quad channel memory? It's just with "mainstream" now going up to 16 cores, I can't help but feel the line has been significantly blurred between mainstream and HEDT, and I'm curios to know how AMD is going to segment them and prevent one from cannibalizing the other.

I've been switching from Intel's HEDT to ThreadRipper for scientific computing for the lanes. Intel's response was Xeon-W which still doesn't cut it for our needs. I'm sure ThreadRipper is also a fantastic choice for studios. I have a few users that require AVX-512 which I still order Intel's for but mainly ThreadRipper or Epyc now adays.

I feel AMD has kinda made the line more clear, made HEDT in true sense 'High End'. HEDT is for those who need those extra cores, pcie lanes & most importantly upwards of 128gb of memory.

Let me rephrase that: with the introduction of a $750 16-core part into the "mainstream" platform, AMD has effectively made the HEDT platform all but unnecessary except for those actually focused on "productivity" and "content creation", however you want to define those nebulous terms. It just feels... weird I guess? Almost as if AMD is saying "nonono please don't buy X599 unless you actually have a real need for MOAR COARZ (or just want to overcompensate), we already have a 16-core 3950X so please just focus on that please".
