also, the higher end skylake is even worse. It eats so much power and has such bad heating issues that the people at TOM'S HARDWARE couldn't get the system to BOOT.

I think my favorite part of computer component releases this year has been Skylake-X. Every release has been a complete disaster. It's absolutely hilarious.

So, is Threadripper commercially available, yet, or are we just hearing about pre-release specs?

You can buy it now. BUT. it is a LARGE processor, you'll need a Threadripper-specific mobo. And a conversion kit for your cooling system. But I'd wait 3-6 months for the cooling kits DESIGNED for it come out.

Eee!  Is it the return of the Brick for which I've been waiting?!  I'd gladly wait if it means I get to play with a Brick, again.
