I'd totally do a 5xxx series Threadripper upgrade if it is a drop-in replacement in my TRX40 board.

Same as last time, I demand the PCIe lanes, don't really care about all the threads, so I'd go for the fewest core version, as long as it has high enough clocks.

I mostly need cores I tend to run lots and lots of small VM’s.

I do that on my server. My desktop mostly does three things:
- Linux: Daily browsing / office package stype stuff
- Linux: A single GUI Windows VM for work (so I can use Office 365, Minitab, Acrobat Pro, etc.)
- Windows: Games

I'd totally be fine with 8 cores, I just can't see my self being limited to so few PCIe lanes.

My server is still on my dual Xeon E5-2650 V2's. So, two Ivy-Bridge 8C/16T Xeons at a base clock of 2.6Ghz and a turbo of up to 3.4.

I'm about at my limit with them, but I have been dragging me feet to upgrade it, not because of the motherboard/CPU cost, but be cause I already have 256GB of DDR3 server RAM, and don't want to buy all of that again...

Sooner or later I'll be forced to though. I think I want to go uniprocessor next time. A 24-32 core Milan EPYC would probably meet my server needs (with some built in margin) quite nicely.

My servers do too, but my desktop functions as my test environment and deployment prep environment. So I am frequently moving VM’s from production to the desktop and back as I test changes, updates, or new deployments and such. Not to mention the side projects I just never get enough time to finish.

My production servers are EPYC’s, but my workstation is about identical but only 128GB in ram. But add a pair of P6000’s.

Ah, I just do my testing on VM clones on the servers themselves.

I would have loved to go threadripper to encode my 4K UHDs quicker, just too [$] for my blood :(
