    9900k has a 5ghz single core turbo / 4.7ghz all core combine that with most games only use 4 cores/ 8 threads at best means that stock with good cooling it'll be running close to 5ghz.

    A true AMD anniversary CPU would be the price of a 2600 ($250ish) and would actually be a 2700X with cores turned off for no reason at all.

    Make it happen AMD!

    i remember watching an adored tv clip and jim was speculating that the very best cores went to the epyc sku the next best to threadripper and finally into ryzen.
    so i hope its using the usually binned for Epyc cores.
    should be good for 5ghz??

    X570 is shaping up to be interesting. almost every board Ive seen has active fan chipset cooling, but the quality of design on the boards i'm seeing is great and is frankly, refreshing to see. I'd love to see how much mileage we will get from using Zen+ on the X570 platform. I'm also worried about the fact it might risk melting down sockets of the high core count models if hapless end users push em too hard and don't keep a proper lid on thermals.

    All cpu's have thermal throttling these days.

    Yeh, but power mosfets can and do get very very hot. Particularly if you are trying to supply 200+w to a socket designed around 130w max.

    Thats a dell mobo and was never designed around 200 or 130. Lets go for 95 W in bursts :)
