Nicely written review SKY, well detailed and compliments to the proofreader, or atleast as I could tell (on the pages I read in detail...the non-gaming ones).

After reading this review, I am looking forward to 31st of August for the 1900X review. After that it will be a good time to decide between X299 (i7-7820X?) or X399 (TR4 1900X?), or even AM4 (1800X?) platform if it makes sense. Now that the Threadripper reviews are out on the 'inter-webs', could the board makers please stop making/marketing any more "Gaming" TR motherboards, it is that much more silly since the reviews point to prosumer/content creator/home lab type workloads and less to gaming.

And honestly, I don't find a 10%(ish) Canadian premium over USD MSRP all that bad. Like it or not, some kind of premium has always been there, especially when businesses have to factor in fluctuations of local currencies against the fixed USD MSRPs they're ordering against.

Plus, once the hype subsides, so will the prices. And I would not be surprised to see AMD bring down the TR prices as Intel releases the rest of their Skylake-X CPUs.

The premium even if it was there before was usually unjustified. For example when the dollar was higher or on-par retailers were slow to adjust and still kept premium prices even when CAD/USD was factored in.

Single threaded performance doesn't really 'suck'. it's almost right up there with the best that Intel has to offer...
