No, you implied the 3950x would be slower than the 3960X because games love more low-latency L3 cache.
You are wrong.
I didn't. Sorry!
The better performance vs Threadripper 2 was already expected, as the memory controller is NOT BROKEN NUMA. The improved cache is just a slight bonus to keep these new units better fed UNDER CORNER CASES.
Yeah, but it's still broken. Uniform addressing, but not uniform latency.
EPYC has already shown us how well the new memory controller scales, so I'm surprised you're so easily impressed.
Removing the memory controller from the CPU, which incurs a tremendous increase in latency, while also increasing the performance isn't impressive?
Sorry you're disappointed.
