    So who's getting a Threadripper?

    I would but since I game 90%+ of the time, it really isn't meant for me. Thinking of a 1700x or 7820k.

    Asus P9X79-Deluxe, Intel i7 3930k, 16gb DDR3-1600, Coolermaster ST case, Corsair AX850 psu, Zotac 980ti, Corsair Model H100 w/c, Samsung 840 Pro 512gB SSD, Intel 750 pci-e x4 NVMe 800gB, Asus Blu-ray Writer 12x, Dell P2715Q 27" Ultra HD 3840x2160 4K LED IPS Monitor, Windows10 Pro x64

    MSI GS Series GS60 Ghost-003 Gaming Notebook 15.6", Intel Core i7-4700HQ 2.40GHz, 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB m.2, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB, 4.36 lbs, LinuxMint 18.2 Cinnamon.

    Bof, I'm not going for AMD just yet. I already have a dual e5-2690 2.9ghz (Turbo boost to 3.8ghz) dual 8 cores 32threads. I think, I'll keep the xeon, i still have to let it depreciate a little before into building another desktop. Plus, I like Intel chipsets better.

    If you got an AMD i'd know the Mandela effect was a real thing

    Hey, Justintime. long time no see. Believe-it or not, I had a few AMD cpus in my past, a k6-2-500 and an xp 1700+. Remember OneEng? He must be happy with AMD these days.

    Note that Coffee Lake will be released in a few months, so you might be able to get a 6 cores/12 threads intel processor for the price of a quad core/8 threads today. Plus it's suppose to be up to 30% faster than kaby lake core for core. So, you might want to wait just before Christmas before committing to anything.
