    Wanted to post this but you beat me to it ;)

    For me, going from 3600 CL16 (Asus D.O.C.P. Auto) to tuned 3800 CL16 visibly increased performance in some high-fps, low-threaded games I play. However, it had little to no effect though in well-threaded games and professional workloads.
    I have (Crucial) Ballistix Elite memory that can easily do 4000, can't wait to tune my future Zen 3 CPU ;-)
    Eyeing that 5900X this time, going from 8 to 12 cores.

    Yeah at those prices these CPUs can easily be avoided unless you're willing to bend over. Things will settle down in the new year after scalpers/idiots have gone through the initial stock.

    Exactly, my 3300x will be quite enough recent benchmarks shows till spring , and spring dust will settle i hope prices fall.

    In related news - Lenovo 620 Thinkstation is on the market, if you are looking for a Threadripper PRO.

    I am still interested in the 5xxx AMD CPUs even though I got a 3700x this past summer because maybe in a few years I might get a 5900x.
    Yeah I heard about those. This what the current Threadripper line up should have been in terms of specs with the max amount of memory they support. I just hope that the next line up of non OEM Threadripper CPUs fix this watered down nonsense.

    Benchmarks are surfacing, and it decimates the 3990

    The memory per core on the 64 core model really didn't make sense. I get giving Intel a giant middle finger with 64 cores but not pairing that with at least 1TB of memory support was a strange move.

    They don't even mention the maximum supported memory in the specs:

    https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-threadripper-3990x

    Intel has the option to support Optane DIMMs in their next HEDT platform if they really want to claim the maximum supported memory crown for themselves and put it far out of reach, probably the only victory they have on tap for 2021.

    Yeah i get it as well. the reason why I know of the low max memory support was from a Linus Tech Tips video where he compared the 3990X to Intel's offering and the Epyc CPUs and they showed the max memory support and they even said it wouldn't hurt their Epyc line if they offered more max memory with the Threadripper line.
