    Even if AMD could have wedged 2x96MB into an 5950X3D AM4 cpu within the 105w power/heat budget while maintaining high clocks ... it would step on 12/16c Threadripper space, and even fight the lowest end EPYCs, so that's a no-go in the product planning I'd guess. I'm also guessing the 5800X3D is going to be quite limited production, but I could be wrong.

    Both companies top half dozen CPU are plenty for gaming, imho. To me, the main story for the 5800X3D is the better minimums / latency that a larger cache can afford, that's why I bought one.
