    Looks like for web hosting at least Intel Core i7 7820X and 7800X would be the sweet spot as a step up from the usual 4 core / 8 thread Intel offerings. Core i7 7820X even manages +0.1Ghz higher clocks with extra 2 cores/4 threads !

    bring on AMD ThreadRipper ! For now Intel Core i9 7900X was ~79% faster than AMD Ryzen 7 1800X AND ~141% faster than Intel Core i7 7740 Skylake-X.

    Fine folks at STH have more AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen 3 New Pricing and Launch Dates



    The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X at $999 will go right up against the Intel Core i9 7900X Skylake-X at $999

    GCC vs Clang compilers on Intel Core i9 7900X GCC vs. Clang Compilers On The Intel Core i9 With Clear Linux - Phoronix
    guess that blows my urgency in getting GCC 7.1 support for Centmin Mod seeing as it isn't benefiting the newer cpus at least for Intel Core i9 Skylake-X and AVX-512 instructions. Though would need to see GCC 5.3 and GCC 6.2 results to compare too.

    Intel's 12-core Core i9 might lose the megahertz war to AMD's Ryzen Threadripper

    yeah it is..

    one Aussie retailer is accepting pre-orders for AMD Threadripper but price is scary in AUS $$$ https://www.mwave.com.au/searchresult?w=Threadripper
    • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920x 12 core = AUD$1,150
    • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x 16 core = AUD$1,440
    beasts in performance and price :)
