    The motherboard manufacturers are going to have a heyday with this. Eagerly awaiting the X399 Coremageddon Assault Extreme for AMD Threadripper.

    Exactly my thought.

    Ohh, a thread ripper with a huge rubber handle.... big whoop-de-doo! Probably costs $40 or so.

    A regular good quality thread/seam ripper is about $5.

    I'm sure that'll be an Asus or MSI brand. :D

    I'll hold out for the refined Threadripper Horsepumper variant.

    Maybe not- IIRC part of the stagnation with AMD was a lack of resource allocation towards the desktop side. With this recent (5 years) push for Zen, I think we might have more competition in the future depending on the profit yields from this venture. My only concern is that Jim Keller left after all the heavy lifting was all done for Zen. Not sure who is going to take up that torch and run with it for the next iteration.

    I bought one for my mom a few years ago. I think it was 10. She likes the bigger handle.

    If this is real, and if it's somehow clocked this high, I will be a bit disappointed AMD has kept the lid on for so long. Any 16 core part will likely be out of my price range though but...

    Or you reasoning is entirely flawed and without merit. The Ryzen chips have 24 PCIe 3 lanes, Intels mainstream has 16 or fewer. Intels first level enthusiast has only 28 PCIe 3 lanes so you are wrong on this on this cannot compete with 2 generations old products. Also, why would they release their HEDT parts first since they will most certainly cost considerably more than the R7 parts? Finally, the fact that there is PCIe 2.0 stuff on the motherboards does not show anything negative but hey, it is not Intel, amirite?

    I'm kind of scared to ask what this is from, but obviously I'm doing it :) Google image search failed me.

    Yeah she does :) :)
