"We had to disregard the multi-core score because it's impossible that both 32-core chips would perform similary, taking into consideration the significant difference in the single-core tests. The Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX run may be bugged."

Or something as simple as different power limits, or different cooling setup. Full-power benchmarks are pointless without controlling or at least specifying those parameters.

"It's not like the chipmaker is in a hurry since Intel currently doesn't have anything to compete in that specific market. "

Except they do need to be in a hurry. By this time next year Zen 4 will be out supporting PCIe 5 and DDR5, both much more beneficial to high end workstation setups. Also if Zen 4 is able to perform, say, 20% faster than Zen 3, and AMD increases the desktop core counts to 16 (confirmed for laptops), 24, or even 32 cores, then the only real advantage Threadripper will have is an 8 channel memory controller and electrical PCIe slots...

If Intel is able to make the same kind of leaps in performance as AMD did with Ryzen, AMD could soon find themselves relegated to the "value HEDT" segment.

No, they don't. Of course it is possible that future shows they were too complacent. But the point established here is that there is nothing in the markets that can challenge this product. And the first product in the future markets that we know can challenge this product will be a product by AMD.

In a situation like this, it is common and reasonable to say the company is not in hurry.
