From what I can tell the TR2 (Threadripper 2) is about a 100$ cheaper than TR1 for the same number of Cores.
While the TR2 beats Intel in both Price and Performance by a large margin in every tier, the best price point for gamers should be around TR 2920X and TR 2950X that should beat
i9 series easily in Desktop gaming. I would thing anything above this for pure server builds where GPU is not used at all and we are constrained by server specs. Then again a lot of games we play don’t really benefit from multiple cores thought that might improve down the road as well.
What are you thoughts?
