Very positive spin. If the assertions are correct, the new threadripper will be a monsterpiece.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

It is already a monster. What the next gen will offer is fixing the memory controller issues in the 24, and 32 core versions that hurt performance in some application. Along with shrinking the die, better clock speed, and IPC, and I am sure more cache . The question is with the smaller die will we see a 64 core Threadripper? That would be a monster killer.

Here are the best C/ R 20 scores right now. The 24 core and 32 core already dominate. And the scores hold true as long as the your application does not have suffer from the memory controller issues of the 24, and 32 cores versions. Chess programs don't seem to suffer on Threadripper gen 2.

With the issues being fixed with the gen 3 Threadripper. The Threadripper scores should go up dramatically looking at how AM4 ryzen 3rd gen progressed. What will be Intel's answer?
