The most interesting is the difference between base clock and boost frequency, which is merely double. Those Thredripper cores have a huge potential and the only thing, that holds them back, is a temperature.

Overclocking challenge

It will come. I am pretty sure, that someone will soon take liquid nitrogen and achieve 64 cores / 128 threads stable 4.5 GHz and possibly more. Those chiplets have it in them.
