"AMD is possibly testing its 3rd generation Ryzen Threadripper HEDT processors, with an interesting entry showing up on the Geekbench online database. The entry speaks of an "AMD Sharkstooth" processor with 32 cores and 64 threads, with a nominal clock speed of 3.60 GHz, and the long-form model number "AuthenticAMD Family 23 Model 49 Stepping 0." None of the 2nd generation EPYC processors correspond with these specs, and so we're almost certain this is a client-segment Ryzen Threadripper part. "

I have a bad feeling I should have waited for Thread Ripper

Could be, and we know they're coming, but this could of course still be a pre-production or engineering sample.

Its an ES clocked at 3.6 ghz, the huge improvements are due to IPC and them being UMA now instead of them being NUMA

It is fast, but bare in mind, it's running under Linux (better perf than windows in geekbench) an the actual clocks during the run are 4.2 GHz (not 3.6), which is hugely impressive though, cosidering my 8 core 3700x is only doing 175Mhz more on a lot of less cores.

I think the key is that TR has a MUCH larger area for the HSF, and since there is no facotry HSF, maybe its a wraithripper HSF ? (I have one on a 2990wx)

Normaly this will be an 180w parts so you can't really compare performance with AM4.

I'm thinking about a 16 core threadripper but with max TDP turned down in bios. So I get a quad DDR4 channel 3950X.
