Let me get this straight, the 3950x is NOT a CPU a gamer or a streamer would want. The 3950x is made for video editing, running VMs, servers and even mining. It has the most powerful multi-core performance for a consumer processor. For streamers, the new NVENC encoder on the latest Turing GPUs is able to match CPU x264 quality so having a high core count CPU for streaming is no longer a requirement. With NVENC, you can stream smoothly even with the 6c/6t 9400F. Running two or three programs in the background while gaming is hardly demanding for multi-threaded, multi-core CPU these days. If most of your daily usage consist of gaming and streaming, look elsewhere, such as the 9900k or 9700k where they will give you more headroom for a faster GPU if you happen to upgrade in the future while also being much cheaper. The 3950x also makes lots of sense if you plan to edit and render videos all day long.—Jan '20

Offered pretty much what was previously regarded as HEDT grade (16 core 32 thread, huge amount of cache and high clock) at lower prices, is more accessible to high end market and can be slotted to mainstream socket.

Workstation grade processing for mainstream pricing. This here is the wet dream of workstation users. Will probably need fast ram and a good cooler (Like a mid-range be Quiet or Noctua air cooler) but boy does it pay off with multithreaded performance.

Beast! Doesn't need a crazy cooler, a mid-price one actually works.

Image editing just jumped by leaps and bounds. With this much ability, I just might see about learning how to edit videos.

Like it or not, but this is the best CPU so far. It has perfect all-round performance and for those who want future proof...next 5 to 10 years the regular consumer or even prosumer will be just fine or better. 4 years ago 4 cores were super and 8 cores were "You don't need it, nothing will use their capabilities". Right now the same story, but 8 cores to 16 cores. Even Intel's flagship 10900K is 10 cores already. Hugely recommendation to everybody, who hasn't decided yet. Gaming is flawless with 2080 Super and on 4K res everything is silky smooth. It just works great with everything.
