Lowest it has even been!!!
Hot, still would take the 2700x or 8700k from Intel if you are gaming more.

Wanna be Twitch streamer or YouTuber, editing videos, this is the CPU to go for!

not in this case, dont forget AMD are running 8cores in the mainstream so for any task thats going to stretch the cpu and its cores the 2700x is better (same core count but faster)

This chip is all about storage and memory, probably for someone who is running VM's all the time. In which case there is no viable intel alternative at this price point.
Who would actually need an 8 core TR im not sure? who would use one for fun or in a soho? Although at this price who cares!

Well at ‘this price’ you could almost assemble a complete quad core system (not just the CPU alone) so I’d say you need a pretty good reason to care enough to want it as quad core is still good enough for most people, in fact dual core is still adequate at the low end.

Mot just VMs...any simulation work that can take advantage. I think this is a good deal as otherwise you’re looking at Xeon chips. Then when start to add up the mobo and often required ECC RAM it becomes expensive. Think you can build a home use workstation for a lot less using this CPU.

Well at 'this price' you could buy the ps4 console as well. But that's not the point. This is very good processor for anyone looking to build productivity/gaming system. As you can take advantage of 64 pcie lanes (dual sli or even triple crossfire). Also with shed loads of sata and nvme storage capabilities.

It is the point entirely. It’s a good price (I didn’t say it wasn’t) but it’s not cheap enough to just be a throwaway/impulse purchase for most people. The things you mention like gaming and needing 64 PCIe lanes are much more niche than for the average user. Average productivity work doesn’t need 8 cores.

Threadripper is not a average user product, It is extreme user platform specially for YouTube streamer or content creators who will go for Intel i7 8700K which is atm more expensive than this can hugely benefit from the multi-core count and additional memory slots and PCIE lanes. And i believe whoever is looking at this thread and serious about buying it knows that. Myself just couple of weeks ago built the Ryzen 2700x system and won't go for threadripper as I don't have need for that.

The 16 cores are going to be the sweet spot for a while even when the 32 core threadripper is introduced later this year. You really have to need the features of these chipsets though to justify it, because for most anyone else they are much better sticking to the consumer AM4 socket.

I'm not sure why you keep quoting me as saying things I never did, my comment was in reference to this quote:
"Who would actually need an 8 core TR im not sure? who would use one for fun or in a soho? Although at this price who cares!"

As in, it's not an impulse purchase at this price and most other people will or should just go for a mid-high end quad-core which will do most of what they'll need perfectly well.

Also, I wouldn't lump content creators (a real job) in with YouTube streamers (a pseudo pretend role for the entitled generation)!

YES!
I wholeheartedly agree.

When you look at the cost of the TR motherboards the small difference in CPU prices becomes a very minor issue.
Not that is competing with that Intel CPU anyway as this is aimed at a much much smaller niche.
