If it's $600+ then very few gamers and/or mainstream users are going to buy that processor and motherboard. It will sell as well as Intel HEDT systems...not very well. With that said I plan on getting one, but this isn't where AMD is going to make much money. Their 8C and below processors are where the money is.They probably just mean the first 16 core on a mainstream socket, thus more aimed at the gaming community than Threadripper, and of course, this is just marketing. Convincing gamers to buy its $600+ CPUs is a huge win for AMD.
