    If you don’t need pci express lanes coming out of your ears this makes a compelling case to forgo threadripper — 32 threads will be all I’ll need. One GPU with pci-e 4.0 even at 8 lanes will be fine, leaving 8 more lanes from the CPU alone of pci-e 4.0 goodness for AIc ssds or anything else.

    I have no idea what most people would do with 16 cores on a desktop/workstation, yes I know a few people have the usage but for more I am sure it’s a case of ‘I have it because I can’

    But damn impressed it has caused so much progress in general in terms of compute power.

    I could put them all to use. Local Kubernetes development, docker compose or docker machine work, compiling code is distributed etc

    I'm loving the core counts, but still a little upset that the memory isn't moving up like they should be. Only recently, to my knowledge, has Intel officially supported 128GB in 4 DIMMs. But, those 32GB sticks are still elusive outside of RDIMM... We want more memory!! All the Chrome Tabs!
