Thoughts on the new Threadripper CPUs? And what about your thoughts/ideas of the 3990x and the newly rumored 3980x? just curious what the community thinks :)

They are the CPU's that the new Mac Pro should have been based on. There's no pretense that they are consumer parts. I'd love to have an excuse to use one in a build.

3990X will be 64 cores and the 3980X will be 48 cores. Both will be really good compared to their last gen version.

Now that they've released the price of the 3990x ($4K USD) it's solidified my plans to use the 3970x as the heart of a video editing / gaming build this year. From the benchmarks, it seems to be a good choice for someone who is looking for solid performance in both single-core and multi-core operations. Haven't heard anything about a possible 3980x though.

The "competition" is based on $20k Intel (Xeon) CPUs. However overpriced it may be, it won't be relatively overpriced. It is a relatively good deal if you need most of a server's power, but not all the RAS server-specific stuff. It isn't a good deal at all if a Ryzen 9 (or i9) will get your job done.
