It might produce instability and the extra CPU cycles don't make any difference with the apps I run. Check out this article concerning what is known about Intel's Core i9. The i9 uses 44 PCIe lanes just like the Ryzen 9. If you really want to take on AMD and remain at the top, forget about backward compatibility when it comes to sockets. More data needs more pins. Besides, if you can afford this thing, the very least of your worries should be backward compatibility. Notice that the release price is rumored to be $1,999 for the top-of-the-line Core i9 7980XE - nowhere near $5000, not even with a new mobo and 32 GB RAM. You can guarantee that the Ryzen 9 1998X will be at least 40% cheaper. Also, keep in mind these are release prices - you can bet borrowed money those prices will come down as time passes.

It this is what they're counting on they've got a serious problem. The release price for the top-of-the-line Core i9 is believed to be $1,999. Compare this with $850 for the high end Ryzen 9 Threadripper. Who in their right mind is going to pay that price difference for just 5%? In fact, you could even add an Nvidia GTX-1080Ti to the mix and you'd still be paying less!
