There are a few things we have to remember about Threadripper before automatically assuming it will be competitive. The Zen architecture has some challenges reaching high clock speeds on the smaller Ryzen processors and there's nothing to think that issue won't carry forward into Threadripper. Therefore, I can see the TR being an awesome multi core beast but I'm not sure it will be a hit among enthusiasts who are looking for high clock rates and overclocking potential. We will see though.
