    Peace of mind.
    But the beauty of that is Intel doesn’t know or care about our needs for the best single core performance, so AMD is scaring them into releasing designs they had for future phases of released SKUs.
    Now we can sit back and enjoy the competition.

    So please, everyone rave about how great AMD is so the analytic collectors can tell Intel they need to pick it up.

    Go AMD

    Cinebench R15 - 5434 points for the 3950X. WTF!

    "Most performance in a mainstream CPU socket"

    ... when you have someone standing there pouring liquid nitrogen on it. :)

    It’s nice knowing the CPU can handle liquid nitrogen.
    IPC, it’s all I’m interested in.

    IPC is one of the most important factors for our use-case, but as @EvilDragon mentioned, the core-cache synchronization is important too. If this is not fast enought, you will not be able to saturate the CPU load. That's one of the reasons why the current Threadripper CPUs are not an optimal solution for DAWs.

    It seems Windows 1903 improves Zen Clock Selection.

    “it’s said” and “according to” are becoming tiresome remarks.
    I have so many PCs now I can’t justify buying a 3700X just to see.
    ScanAudioPro will tell me all I need to know.
    And even so I want a live CPU.
    It’s okay if it craps out at 75%.
    It’s what happens from 0-74% that I’m interested in.

    I’m a low watt big cache kind of guy.
    Hell I don’t even want more than a Quad.

    If I don’t like the test results from ScanAudio or TechReport I’ll just get that cheap little i3 8350k and the ASRock Rack Q370.
    4.0GHz on ant Intel Core is good enough for me.

    Besides, it’s been a few years since I had a box office hit.
    My needs are meager in comparison to those times.
