I'd almost say it'd be worth buying an 8086k when you really wanted a 1950x as it would be a cheaper way to get one. Shame it's just 40 parts & in the US only.

Reality is, most buying an 8086k are not going to want the threadripper as it's slightly slower than a normal AM4 part if used solely for gaming.

For productivity this would be great but for gaming a 1950X is not exactly a good chip, I've seen a lot of benchmarks showing the 1950X severely holding back a 1080 Ti at various resolutions.

Love it, way overdue to have some competition and rivalry in the market.
Now we just need it to happen with GPUs

I love amd for doing this, its such a snarky little thing to do and it plays well with intel's lack of progression they pulled on us for ages.
