    I'm hoping a Threadripper 2 2900X comes out at that price point, but no word yet on a 2900X at all.

    Interesting!

    Not according to the other chart that Shijan posted above that one. Says 16 PCIe lanes for the 9900K. We'll have to see.

    The embargo for TR2 lifts tomorrow, but so far what we know from leaks is that:

    2990WX is rumored to launch at $1800
    2970WX is rumored to launch at $1300
    2950X is rumored to launch at $900 - 10% less than the launch price of its predecessor
    2920X is rumored to launch at $650 - ~19% less than the launch price of its predecessor
    2900x has no rumored price that I can find, but its predecessor launched at $550 - could be anywhere from ~$450-$500

    Perhaps a 2900x doesn't even exist and they'll just keep manufacturing the 1900x. You can currently grab one for $365.

    Oh, I see that now... Hmmm.
    Saw that the motherboard chipset for these is 44 lanes.
    Yeah, that's a potential step backwards.

    Still riding the i7-7280X at this price point.
    Those thousand dollar ThreadRippers are nuts. Love to move up but I'm trying to avoid build creep.... Set out for a $2,500 build and walk yourself right up to $4,000 if you're not careful. LOLZ!

    Threadripper prices don't start at $1,000, though, and it looks like Threadripper 2 prices will be less than Threadripper 1. It looks like a Threadripper 2 2900X - when released - will likely not be much more than an i9-9900K, but will have 60 PCI-e lanes. I know the 1900X was released after the initial 19x0X batch, though, so we'll see what is announced (if anything) on Aug 13th. I'm surprised Intel is still being so stingy on PCI-e lanes.

    Once you get to 8 cores/16 threads, you start hitting some serious diminishing returns for most tasks, and should concentrate your cash on other aspects of the system like RAM, GPU, and storage. The great thing about Threadrippers having so many PCI-e lanes is that even the lowest-end SKU has the full complement of lanes, so you're not hamstrung when you then spend big on GPU & storage. I'd like to see some Resolve benchmarks to see where the sweet spot is for Threadripper core count v performance.

    resolve uses all threads effectivly, more threads = faster machine running Resolve

    Indeed.
    The difference in performance of Resolve vs Premiere on a given system can be huge. Really different things happening under the hood.

    A page or two back I posted a very thorough article assessing Premiere's performance with a bunch of different CPUs.
    Here is their similar assessment using Resolve:
