    I can only assume it's poor Intel.

    I really hope they are genuinely working on a competitive product (which should be ready in a few years), whilst they're messing around frantically, trying to distract everyone with the smoke and mirrors, aswell as the terrible products the have coming up.

    If not and Intel are only going forward as they have in the past, the may not exist as they do now, come a few years time.

    Intel has always been behind in a way as putting themself as the only x86 CPU brand... instead of looking ahead they did a Nokia here.. it is like he move from cell phone to smart phone.

    Re: AMD introduces the Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors

    Whilst I agree it's poor Intel (probably) this product won't do any serious damage to Intel and its brand. Expensive product with expensive requirements (8 channel ram for instance) but also a killer.... but won't switch anyone away soon...

    Re: AMD introduces the Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors

    Am I the only one disappointed by the lack of 12 or 16 core non-pro Threadripper 3000s? I feel like they missed a trick there.

    Again why when a high core count Ryzen is there?

    No, I've found that I keep edging towards to threadripper with my next build but then I keep looking at prices and thinking how nice it would be to have a 16 core non pro...

    Probably the same reasons as me...more pcie lanes for multiple gpu and multiple pcie ssds. And yes with 3D rendering and the likes I could make use of them.

    At least you make a decent case there - but for many just go high core count Ryzen. Although to be fair X570 makes it a tad easier to get multiple pcie ssds and I'd be inclined to say that a half decent pcie expansion card > m.2 might be just as good

    Re: AMD introduces the Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors

    So it *is* an OEM-only EPYC 7H12 with a higher boost clock.

    I'm still not entirely sure I see the benefit of using Threadripper branding for a pro workstation rather than an EPYC sub-brand, particularly when the processors are spec-identical to and (presumably) platform-compatible with EPYC, and not with standard Threadripper. No doubt these will leak out through retail channels and confuse the hell out of some people.

    If that was completely true there wouldn't be 16c/32t 'desktop' cpu's like the 3950x....

    Not to mention the build I'm looking at is already hitting around 4-5k in price even with just a 3950x so I'd say that isn't really a solid argument anymore. Mind you if I wanted to overspend I could spend that on a single quadro gpu... (I've spec'd an 'uber' workstation and it came in around 40k and would just be stupid to spend that much with my needs)

    Yup - I develop Vulkan applications and need to test with multiple, different GPUs.
