Strengths:

If you want to host 10 instances of ark servers, a minecraft server, and play your games all on the same computer, this is the CPU you want. just remember to buy a lot of RAM. Those Ark servers eat a lot . 64GB is the min, I recommend 128gb. And try to buy it in the 4 stick configuration, not 8, or you will take a latency penalty more than likely .

Weaknesses:

Price is a little high due to also having to buy into the motherboard and other pricey items. The 3950x is certainly a better value. but come on, be a baller and get the thread ripper for peace of mind.

Additional Comments:

If absolute max FPS is all you care about, still go Intel. Ryzen and Thread ripper for everything else

Strengths:

Awesome ESXI virtualization CPU with lots of cores to assign to VMS, up to 8 cores per VM for the free ESXI 6.7 license, 48 logical cores in total from the 3960X

Weaknesses:

Using a noctua air cooler 140mm fan at stock setting temps reached 87 ~ 89° C runs Hot but it is not under load most of the time so it should be fine.

Additional Comments:

I did not expect it will be that expensive, but it supports faster PCI 4.0 protocols, lots of Lanes available for you IO, i am running a storage server on it too with an add in 4 port sata pie card, with 12 direct attach storage devices with tons of pcie lanes left it is a solid product for a home lab environment, the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is the price, other than that solid CPU
