Just get a Threadripper 3970x instead.

While it's good for Intel to cut the prices of top end i9-x980XE in half (from $1979 to $979), it was unfortunately positioned in an awkward position against the competing AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and Threadripper 3960X. This CPU offer better value than the preceding i9-9980XE while offering nearly similar performance as the preceding ones but would prefer paying less for Ryzen 9 3950X, Threadripper 2950X or more for mighty Threadripper 3960X instead.
