hmm... For 32 cores... that might be correct. I'm guessing though that with a better boost algorithm and better efficiency in general + being the top notch dies produced it might actually not lag that far behind the older Threadrippers, if at all.I can understand. AMD is saying "you don't need chilled water to run our new CPU". I am guessing clocks might even dip below 3 ghz like EPYC. You can't take 2 180 watt TR's and have it all running at 3.4 ghz and me 250 watt. But I do think we can get overclocked 3.7 or 3.8 on a good AIO.
But I will have one, and with a new motherboard as soon as I can get my hands on it. I only have 4 threadrippers now.
