Biggest advantage... unless some crazy bug effects launch hardware. No playing the stepping lotto with your purchase. You can run a fully secureity mitigated system on any of these and give up 3% in performance.... not 8-16% depending. With mitigations on AMDs current 2k chips where already starting to look to be on par... so ya a 15% bump and increased core count looks pretty darn good. Looking forward to some reliable reviews.
