    GN confirmed that MB vendor testing 16C parts, but looks like the high demand for full 8C chiplets from EPYC delays the launch of 16C AM4 and TR 3000.
    They made such expensive X570 boards for a reason :).

    There will be a 16 core AM4 part when it is time, the part exists in ES.

    3900x is already a double 8core chiplet, likely with 2 cores per chiplet disabled. So I hightly doubt 16 is not possible. Fact that board developers all have early samples of em kinda removes an doubt. Pre computex it was said they would hold off on the 16core/announcing until Q3. Looks true so far.

    There is no question about the 16 core existing. The reality is though, it will most likely require an X570 board, and won't be supported on X370 and X470. I think that one of the main reasons AMD did not announce yet is because it will require a motherboard upgrade. They want to get as many X370 and X470 owners as possible to be hyped right up, and to dive into buying into the new line up of chips. They want to avoid any negativity that may result from stating "the 16 core R9 will require an X570 motherboard due to its increase in power requirements". They have so many people excited about Zen 2. They don't want to disrupt any of that. I bet that the 16 core won't be shown until well after July, and after many have already bought a lower sku in the product stack. It is a smart move on their part to say nothing.

    I still think the 486 DX2 was the best processor ever made, simply because of what it made possible.

    Those were good times, and nothing has really changed since.

    Ray tracing will be the next evolution.

    In 2005, vast majority of users were still on single cores (AMD socket 939, venice, san diego, etc, and Intel Pentium 4 (1 core, 2ht). The first mainstream dual cores were released in 2005 (Athlon 64 x2, Pentium D). Still remember the days here in this forum and what the vast majority of users were on. Only with C2D in 2006, everyone began to switch to dual cores. I recall all the excitement in early 2006 when the first C2D performance leaks came out, and a lot of folk held off their upgrades (incl me) until its release in early summer that year. So basically, 14 years when dual cores first began to appear.

    Well, It is 2019, many users here nowdays were born in the early 2000's.
    2005 to them sounds like talking about the 70's sounds to me
