If this is true, it is very good news. These new Threadripper Pro will fully open the professional/corporate workstation market for AMD. The people who buy these workstations don't care about a new socket and high price (as long as it is reasonable, with the caveat that what they judge reasonable will not be so for the casual user, gamer or the normal power user).
32C/64T or 64C/128T is a dream for "creators",
8-channel memory, 3200MT/sec (?), ECC (?), RDIMM (?) up to 2 TB
Remote management in or out of band,
Guaranteed 2 years availability
In other words, the Threadripper Pro bring the features missing in Threadripper the corporate IT people want. Intel will need a new truly new architecture to fight against Threadripper, not gonna happen soon, Again if this is true.
