Since AMD is going to support the 400 series chipset, pretty sure I'll be upgrading from a 3700x to a 4700x or 4800x. I've heard 15% IPC improvement and 200Mhz increase in single core performance will be worth it.

"Anonymous sources told DigiTimes last month that there is a strong possibility that Zen 3 could arrive around August or as late as September. "

Aargh, stop teasing us! I'm ready to buy now! (having held off on Zen 2 to go straight to Zen 3)

Back in 2012, I built a 16-core dual-Xeon beast for rendering of Adobe After Effects/Premiere & 3D composites, based on the promise that multi-core threading was the way of the future...

But the dream fizzled for me after Adobe CC 2014 when support for multi-core processing in AE was taken out of user contol & performance enhancement preferences. AE renders slowed down after that. I think the much better all-around strategy for me to have taken would have been a single, 6-core, overclocked i7...

Does any software these days actually make any worthwhile use of 16 cores?

more impressive will be an 8 core CPU that can boost and maintain all cores to 4.7 GHz or so....(we certainly know there is no way 4600 MHz is any more than on 1-2 cores on a 16 core CPU.....)

4.6 GHz boost plus a conservative +10% IPC improvement, makes this equivalent to a 5,1 GHz Zen2, at least. Doesn't sound bad at all...

I very much doubt that. Would love to see the real world benchmarks when released. 4.6Turbo seems very low. And ram speed doesn't do a lot, is such a tiny difference.
