using a none HT chip for comparison? Really.
be lucky to get 100 me thinksoverall good presentation from AMD imho. Only cringey thing was the Acer guy to me and that non HT blender demo. I'm pretty excited and feel quite confident that I'll get some value from my recently purchase 2700x but will be very happy with the upgrade to the 3900 in a few months. Anyone wanna 2700x for $150 in 2 months?

No, but there has been long standing speculation that it would release down the line. There's no real need for them to release it right now.
Given Intels inability to get to 10-7nm I think AMD might have the performance crown for awhile. I don’t know how Intel expects to launch a new 9900KS with 5Ghz all cores wtf will they use to cool that and what’s the TDP?
I think it's the smarter move from AMD to release a 12 core imho. Just enough for what feels like an upgrade worth the 66% increase in price, but not enough to make people who buy your more mainstream $329 product think they are getting shafted. As much as power users feel like we matter to the bottom line, it's the $200 spenders that make companies money. If AMD immediately release a 16 core chip, it basically would tell their $329 users they are the new "Average". Could bite them in the butt.
Intel is already shipping 10nm, and it's a better process than TSMC's 7nm, though TSMC appears to have gotten the volume out first.
As for the 9900KS- if it's well-binned, then the overall requirements won't change. Most are going to be running them with 240mm/280mm/360mm AIOs which can handle the heat without a problem.
It would be in an entirely different category though and wouldn’t be for gamers. The clocks would be lower I’d imagine.
