And it has AVX512 which would be my reason for getting one, but it's still more expensive than it's worth to me. It also doesn't have a lot of the more advanced AVX512 extensions yet, such as AVX512-VBMI, or AVX512-BITALG.
I haven't but I would like to try one and a ThreadRipper too. I work on a very parallelized program (using OpenMP) and these are exactly the kind of machines it likes. I would love to have one of each and compare them with my program. As it is, we can't get enough power in one box so we have to have two or three more as clients. We would like to be able to have one box with a couple of those chips in it to the do the whole job.
I am not sure I can convince myself to buy one at its current price. But I am still thrilled that it is available and that a home user can buy it if he/she really wants to. Expensive for sure but not out of reach.
Men buy diamonds for some special lady in their lives
Women want to have equal treatment, they should buy us brand new technology in return
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I tried both a Threadripper and i9
kept the i9, my workflow seemed much faster on both (compared to the two year old i7 I was using), but there was a problem with the Threadripper that made it a no go. There is no hardware accelerated emulators for Android on Windows, my workflow lately is SQL server, ASP.NET MVC, Azure App Services and combination of Xamarin and native, and well, it would take 7-9 minutes to boot an Android emulator, and running code on it would usually timeout the rest services.
It seems like Google and Intel have some kind of deal where the Android emulators on Windows only use some Intel processors, on Linux they support both AMD and Intel, but I develop on Windows.
cnet sigh, they gave us the "downloader" - download the downloader to download the software, why? well never figured out why (had to dig further to find the direct & website links), they've removed sorting options (no more sorting by user ratings).
Anyway wasn't looking for software, my portable mp3 player (older sony - looks like a small sausage) finally died, so searching for "best portable mp3 player 2017"
what comes up near tge top of the list?
.... "Best MP3 Players for 2018 - CNET"
2018?? they've already decided the best for next year?
FFS, what these useless fading websites do to try and stay relevant is just annoying.
I've already long given up reading cnet reviews, so obviously biased to whoever paid them the most

I used to watch TechTV around 20 years ago. Fun times...everything (computer related) was new to me then. My dad had given me a powermac 6100 that I must have rebuilt a dozen times before I bought my first windows machine in '98. I remember being amazed that I could run VS6 at home...no more computer labs!
