No you fucking retard, even if programs are single-threaded the OS scheduler is aware and can balance multiple programs across multiple cores when multitasking.
And one of the initial bugs with Ryzen was that W10 didn't balance it correctly (it used cores in different CCXs even when there were available free cores on the same CCX, therefore increasing latency, or something like that).

It's a server CPU which will probably also be used in very high-end workstations.

Video rendering does use 100% of all available cores.

A webserver will distribute requests among all cores but probably not use 100% of all of them since you probably want to load-balance with more servers the moment you're nearing 70%, perhaps even 50%, during peek hours.

I could go on but it's enough to say that there's a whole lot of things that's "optimized" to use all available cores. This isn't something made with Windows gaming in mind - even if that's also something that needs a lot of cores these days. There is a difference between just playing some game that may or may not use more than 4 cores and live-streaming and real-time encoding the game you're playing. You will see a pretty huge difference between a 4 core Intel i7 and a Ryzen if you stream your games.

Not just server CPUs but all modern computers. Threading of applications is actually happening and with phones all having more cores it will happen at a quicker pace. Modern game engines are highly threaded at this point so the moar coarz meme is actually a reality.

I would never upgrade from a 4c4t chip to anouther 4c4t or even 4c8t chip. Its simple not worth it when you can pick up a zen chip with 8c16t for $310~ that has higher IPC than the mainstream intel chips(albeit it wont clock as high)

I dunno if these people here are idiot or just bait.
I'm on a team developing geolocation systems from power grid management. We have a server that is used by 20 people, it's a top of a xeon 12 core that at time cost +2000$. Now scale that up to systems that can actually run 5/6 virtual servers on top of a 64 core platform. Now you see where lower power bill really matters, and how much aquisition costs can be cut.

Companies don't just change server hardware because a new is available, it's either due to eol or due to better performance cost reduction. When you buy a 64 core platform you expect it to run for ateast 5 years.

It's not a bad thing to push bounds if they can be done at a fair price. The only issue at the moment is that having a fuck ton of cores doesn't mean much unless you have a shit ton of programs open or you have programs specifically written to take advantage of multiple cores. I'd take a few less cores if the processor speed of each core was greater.

It's a server platform dipshit. Most of these machines are going to be running multiple instances of VM's managed by a hypervisor.

It's just not efficient to have multiple physical machines/servers with fewer cores.

You can distribute the load dynamically, so when one VM needs the resources/is under heavy load it can scale up, then scale down when it does not need them. When one VM is idle or has almost no clients connected to it just automatically allocate it one core. That way when one of your server instances get hits with a metric fuckton of traffic you can give it a shit ton of cores/memory to handle the situation.

In conclusion, more cores are better for servers and not so much better for (You) unless you do things like run a server or do a lot of media editing.

Because Epyc exists, Threadripper will exist and Threadripper will bring 2:1 infinity fabric speeds and 3.6/4.0ghz clocks to 10-16 cores, allowing better single-threaded AND multi-threaded performance than you can presently get in an 8+ core CPU.

Also means I can comfortably game or whatever while rendering 1080p 60fps videos rather than having my computer come to a standstill during rendering.

No. Schedulers are not responsible for splitting programs into additional threads. What they can do is preempt a task to stop so another task can begin so that each task meets their respective deadlines without failing causing race conditions. Single threaded tasks don't get split, period. The developer is responsible for writing multithreaded programs and respecting atomics. The problem is when a multithreaded program needs to access memory and make a trip L3/2/1. Infinity Fabric is pretty slow (comparitively to even traditional uncore communication, but is infinitely more versatile), and is set 1:1 to memory clocks (2:1 to memory controller), some people did armchair math and said it's about ~40GB/s for 2400MHz. This is already way faster than Intel Quickpath; it's kind of like a nether region between a dual socket processor and straight up having a ring-bus. Some do speculate that Threadripper and EBYN goes 4:1 with the memory controller which you would be hard pressed to even intentionally discover such a bottleneck.

What we don't know if infinity fabric has different domains that are clocked at 2:1

We know CCX > CCX is clocked at memory speed, but what about memory controller > CCX? That's certainly not at 1:1 else the latency would be beyond terrible.

He said every single threaded program targeted core 0, therefore there was no benefit on using multiple cores when multitasking (using many single-threaded programs). I didn't argue that the scheduler split single-threaded workloads into multiple threads, I just said it balances many single-threaded programs into many cores.
