    Also who uses the stock cooler on a CPU that costs 400+ euro anyway. None complained when they didn't include a cooler for threadripper.
    Let the fools pay £78 more for no cooler for the 3900xt when you can get pretty much identical performance from the 3900x which has a fine stock cooler. As they say, fools and their money are easily parted, it's just not worth an 18% price premium for a set of Emperor's new clothes.

      It's a overclocker CPU:
      -it's not going to be run at stock frequency
      -stock cooler is crap for OC

        Yes, they use the same CPU core chiplets for the whole stack, the only differing stuff is in the "IO chiplet" aka "chipsetlet", that is built as a bigger process node and has two separate versions, one for consumer CPUs and the other for Epyc and Threadripper.
        The image is a Epyc, and the smaller dies are the CPU chiplets, the big one in the middle is the IO chiplet.



        And this is a consumer Ryzen with two CPU chiplets on the top and the IO chiplet on the bottom



        The amount of shenanigans they can pull with a chiplet-based design is completely off the charts, it's much more convenient for binning and such as everything is using the same production line.

          Why would you waste your time reviewing these? They are basically the same thing as last year products with 50-100$ bigger price.
