Cool, will this be good enough for some light web browsing and looking at my emails?
Will this be suitable for an incredibly droll comment about running applications that don't require a powerful CPU?

Will this handle solitaire and maybe at a push Minecraft?
Sold. The sticker in the box made me bite
Jokes aside, can someon explain, what is the use for all theses threads and cores? Especially in a context of a server, what type of tasks would this be more capable of compared to a ryzen 5 3600?

The jokes aren't actually funny .. For server usage, multiple server vms ..
I don't need one but want one.

Rendering / encoding mainly. Youtubers / photographers
its hard to believe that in about 10 years time this will be junk and laughed at....

Workstations for rendering, video editing, or anything that's CPU intensive. This is not really a consumer product, but it has it's place in the market.
I do architectural renderings for a living and currently about to build one for myself since some freelance jobs are popping up quite frequently.

I think "junk" and "laughed at" are a bit strong but yeah itll possibly be comparable to medium or low end.

You're thinking of the competition from Intel.

Look at LinusTechTips videos, the guy uses similar CPU to run a server in his attic, so he doesn't need to have separate PCs. It's definitely not something a "gamer" needs though

No, you'll need to overclock it to 7ghz minimum.

Video rendering: The more cores, higher frequency, faster it can churn out videos.
Given that rendering is now either hybrid render (cpugpu) or just gpu compute renders, the need for corner is diminished somewhat. Of course its not the case with cpugpu renderers. When it comes to dynamics and cfd - more cores please ...

That was an interesting read and cool benchmark. Look forward to the next 10 years to see what will be on offer as flagships
