    I will probably downgrade to 8 / 16 next time around, this was a bit overkill i am afraid.
    You say this however I went from a 2600K with 4c/8t to the 9700K with 8c/8t and decided it wasn't much of a step up, so picked up a cheap 9900KF with 8c/16t. Something just didn't really sit right with me. I think you would probably miss the extra threads if you downgraded, although chances are you'll be able to skip threadripper and just get a normal Ryzen with more cores / threads when you do next upgrade.

    When would you like to have more than 4 cores - I mean most gaming is restricted by GPU anyhow.

    12c via R9 3900XT, just recently upgraded from 16 cores which were dual 8c E5 2690 Xeons and before that I had dual 6c Xeon X5650s. So I've gone 12c -> 16c -> 12c over the last 6 years or so.

    5600X So 6.

    Weird how cores have been in my machine over the past decade, FX6300 6 core --> 6600K 4 core --> 5600x 6 core.

    Mind, ignoring hyperthreading here

    Latest machine? 12c in the form of a 3900X, work's laptop, a 4c i7 (can't remember what model, but it doesn't exactly trip off the tongue but it's getting on for about 6-ish years old now though, Intel naming conventions aren't getting any better it seems), previous desktop machine a 6c 3930k.

    Re: QOTW: How many cores does your desktop CPU have?

    Just changed the main PC's CPU to a Ryzen 5600X, so 6c/12t. It previously had a Ryzen 2700X in it, which was 8c/16t.

    So less cores, but better performance and far less power consumption. That's a win, win as far as I'm concerned
