    This thing is throughly faked, badly at that. Not only has been content removed, but the threadload is just a repeating pattern. This is just the load of a 8 Thread machine copy and pasted all over the place again and again. I highlighted one of the identical threads in this shot:

    Every other thread is repeating in the very same pattern with the same offset as the one I highlighted.

    I dunno where exactly it has been faked.. At msi? in some random dudes windowless basement? at wccf for some bullshit news again?
    No clue... Still, even if this is bullshit, it doesn't mean the 64 core threadripper is bullshit. it may come after the initial realease with the 24 and 32 core variants, but likely only if Intel has a way to counter the 32 cores somehow. Otherwise, there is no point in going higher and hurting potential epyc sales by introducing cheaper threadripper variants. After all, AMD is already king in HEDT with 32 cores.

    Lol what a stupid fake.

    When there are too many cores, the new Win 8/10 Task Manager switches to "Heat Map" mode, which looks like this:

    In addition, the clock/cores/threads/cache info is always on the right, doesn't matter how many cores are in the system.

    That crap picture is made by a 11-year old in his mom's basement.
    I can't believe anyone would take that as "real" .... pffff

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn , please remove this trash "fake news" article.

    This is absolutely faked. To be fair msi could have mocked this up prior to getting there hands on Threadripper. I wouldn't put this past a vendor to have the entire PC screen you see as a mocked up image.

    Its not always in the right side... depending on your windows build it can be right next tot he handles/speed/threads block
