Not much that'll be different compared to Epyc. Seems strange to decide to do this.

Could say that about this whole Threadripper line up, if it wasn't for the fact that Epyc is an entirely different platform, different memory config(4c vs 8c), socket/chipset hierarchy(Epyc chipset designed for, and platform focuses on, 2S configs), feature set, price range, validation, ect that inevitably results in two very different and completely incompatible set of boards to use with them.

Same could be said for the 32-core 2nd Gen Threadripper. They both cater to different markets and workloads.

This way, AMD isn't seen to be holding back on desktop and also gains a halo product that Intel cannot hope to match anytime soon. This CPU is more of an assertion of dominance over Intel than anything else.

Intel will need to fight back to regain momentum, which leaves us consumers in a great position for the next few years.

This generation ThreadRipper should just read: "Say hello to the final nail in Intel's HEDT coffin"
