HEDT is already not needed for the majority of consumers. People with extreme I/O requirements will still want it.If that leak is right and we get 12 core/24 threads for $300 it seems like HEDT is not needed for the majority of consumers.
What they need is a 32c/64t HEDT product that actually has full access to all memory banks from all cores, unlike the 2990WX. The 2990WX has some . . . design compromises, to put it mildly. Zen2 TR needs to fix that.Yeah, but the 2990WX is already hitting a point at which software/OS limitations are leading to diminishing returns. Outside of a few applications I am not sure that we really need to push past 32c/64t for HEDT at the moment. Sure, in a few years yeah, but right now it would probably be smarter for AMD to put their effort into improving the memory situation on Zen.
