Single core performance is at Broadwell-E. I don't see at all how that is bad and Ryzen has been at that level since their release in March 2017. Not sure why this is a surprise and it's definitely not as you describe it considering the Ryzen architecture IPC jump. Also HEDT is not intended for gaming it's intended for content creators, streamers, multi-taskers etc... Strictly gaming is for mainstream platforms.

Single-threaded performance:

Our benchmarks show Ryzen Threadripper to be better than Broadwell-E in single thread actually:

I think Anandtech may have used a different memory latency setup between their Broadwell-E and Ryzen setup.

Is it possible to do a clock for clock comparison with Cinebench for single-threaded performance of Threadripper and Broadwell-E? I do see that it is slightly higher than Broadwell-E but I am wondering if that has anything to do with the clock speeds of Threadripper versus Broadwell-E (specifically 6900K/6950X).

I don't see the single thread performance as an issue. Besides the fact that it's not that bad per the review, if you're buying an enthusiast chip how many modern apps are you using that are single threaded? I'd venture pretty few. Sure some old games and programs are single threaded, but at this point the CPU's fast enough that it's going to be a non-issue in real-world time anyway.

Clock for clock is very hard if not impossible with these chips since you cannot fully disable Precision Boost.

I don't even need it..... but i want one!

If I ever created a "Lord of The Rings" PC (one to rule them all) I would get this. Great review as always, Sky.

I wish I was made of money.

An amazing setup for those doing content creation! I don't see the issue with this setup for gaming lol I think you will be juuuust fine.

Hmmmm...I wonder how long it's going to take for miners to start gobbling up all these threadripper motherboards and cpus?

Mining doesn't really take CPU cores nor PCIe bandwidth. Would definitely be a waste of money for them.
