    TRX40@4 channel memory upto 32 cores
    TRX80@8 channel memory upto 64 cores
    WRX80@8 channel memory upto 64 cores as this is a workstation stuff.

    I could bet on these ;)

    All this means TR3 platform will be a real killer :)

    Hope until then Microsoft developers will tweak the Windows scheduler to properly make use of those cores.
    For those who don't know about it, here it is.

    Well, if the Threadripper 3000 series ends up being based on chiplets, the Windows scheduler (although still incompetent) isn't going to result in such drastically terrible results without being modified. The chiplet design is substantially more tolerant of schedulers that like to [needlessly] swap tasks between different cores (which is the barebone reason why the 2990WX performed so poorly). MS still needs to fix this behavior, but, at least the performance shouldn't be so bad that someone like Wendel needs to spend so much time investigating a solution.

    Anyway, as a BOINC user, I sure am going to be excited when all those 2990WXs sell for dirt cheap because of how tremendously obsolete they'll become, even though they're actually super capable CPUs under the right conditions.

    Can someone imagine storage made entirely of 8GB HBM chips backed by battery connected via PCIe 4.0 x32?

    It's not HBM but being non-volatile on a system with 4-8 memory controllers (and in turn, direct CPU access, rather than communication over PCIe), I think I'd rather opt for that.

    I dream of a day where ReRAM becomes affordable, and obsoletes the need of both disk storage and RAM as we know it. There would be no such thing as loading; the CPU just reads/writes directly from the source as needed, and only whatever is needed. No more lost data from power outages. No need for suspend/hibernate. No point in caching/buffering.

    Yes. But it has that issue called system reliability in general. On finely tuned linux workstation, it would be great. With buggy windows and need to restart with updates...
    Half of benefits lost.
    I think we sooner get PCIe 5.0 and M.2 NVMe drives reading 10GB/s+.

    What I meant was sheer amount of bandwidth available via given interface. And HBM could even be downclocked for "power efficiency" as it would be still overkill. And compete with RAM itself in terms of bandwidth.

    What I want for storage:

    Lower latency > higher bandwidt

    Ps, I running a Intel Optane 900p with my Ryzen 3900x :)

    I love how AMD still keeping same sockets for these new threadripper line, im excited to upgrade!

    I wonder if we'll see the fabled X590 ?
    I could imagine a really bad TR I/O chip being reused as an AM4 chipset just for the extra PCIe lanes.
    TDP might be a problem tho. Fan almost guaranteed.

    the x570 IS the x590.
