    For the price of the Core i9-7960X I could get a Threadripper 1950x, Motherboard and 16GB of 3200mhz RAM and still have change for a weekly food shop and some beers.

    I think that the prices are yet to be confirmed. Are you tempted for a change?

    Great. Ideal for the "just won the lottery, got more money than sense" build I'm likely to never do! :D:D:D

    How do they compare to Threadripper in performance?

    Bearing in mind the 1950x is £998 and the i9-7960x is £1589...

    Got nothing more than a casual affirmative here. After all wouldn't you be surprised if it didn't beat TR at something?

    Besides there are variations in comparisons. Popular ones seem to be equal cores and equal pricing.

    I'm interested to see how that low base clock works out personally. TR is after all a couple of ryzens glued together and it didn't lose clockspeed.
