Ok, yes, it is a joke premise, but it did show an interesting fact that AMD hasn't (as of this post) yet responded to: Threadripper doesn't throttle, it just shuts down which is typical AMD fare, whereas the 9980XE did. That could be an issue where you, say, leave a very heavy workload to complete overnight and something happens with the cooling, either room or system. The AMD system would shut down, potentially losing all work, whereas the Intel system would throttle to a crawl, saving your work.
