    AMD vs. Intel at 16 cores: We test Ryzen Threadripper 1950X against Core i9-7960X

    Conclusion;
    Looked at in a core-vs.-core battle without considering price, Intel's Core i9-7960X leads the way. It gives you great performance at light-duty applications and generally can't be touched by the Threadripper 1950X in heavy-duty applications, either. In a lot of the tests we ran, we were actually surprised Core i9 ran away from Threadripper so easily.

    That said, it's pretty hard to ignore price when you're spending your own money on a build. Our opinion hasn't changed for Threadripper: It is absolutely the best $1,000 CPU you can get, a spectacular deal. But price aside, in a 16-vs.-16 battle, Core i9 is the winner.

    Aka nothing new in the sun. And Pcworld.com haven't talked about how they will compare with maxed or decent OC. Probably bigger difference with not the big increase in cost (Both systems will need proper cooling if you go for overclocking).

    Edit... News regarding shortage of Coffe chips!!
    Intel Helps Retailers Digest Old Core K-series Inventory with Game Bundles


    "With the rather fast introduction of the Intel Core i7-8700K (just 9 months following the January 3rd launch of the i7-7700K), retailers are finding themselves with quite a bit ofunsold i7-7700K (and even i7-6700K) inventory. Consumers are drawn to either the i7-8700K, or the competing AMD Ryzen processors. To help the market digest these unsold chips, Intel started a new game-bundle dubbed "Game Without Compromise."Yeah, the main reason we have a shortage of Coffe chips!!

    How much did it cost? Noctua system fans especially industrial ones are the best.

    Who cares? It's overpriced Intel grindage from the "free" spare parts drawer. ;)

    From the video's youtube comments:

    ...Threadripper has more PCIe lanes...

    ShadowAssassin 3 hours ago
    thread ripper is a poopy head

    Gurvinder Parmar 3 hours ago
    ShadowAssassin No, it's not...and with memory makers finally making proper latency DDR4 for AMD, the benchmarks are showing it beating Intel in gaming.

    ... Also, I understand the price-to-performance gains of Threadripper over any i9, but the Intel CPU was a sample that would otherwise go unused, and I'd like to keep the few TR samples I have to use in future projects.

    I thought it was your PC, when you posted the video.
