While it didn’t win medals for single core performance, it was competitive in prosumer workloads and opened up the floodgates to high core-count processors in the months that followed. Fast forward twelve months, and AMD doubled its core count with the Threadripper 2990WX, a second generation processor with 32 cores and upgraded 12nm Zen+ cores inside, fixing some of the low hanging fruit on performance.
