The 28C i9 will require up to 32 VRM phases for juice lol. I think that's about it regarding i9 vs Threadripper...

(yeah shit source, but the first one today).

On other hand, it will have six-channel memory support, and of course all those directly to single-die chip. So it might be the ultimate CPU for Corona which seems to be somehow memory starved on Threadripper unfortunately.
I wonder what the price will be. 2999 euro ? 3999 euro ? At that price point you might as well go GPU-rendering for good.

That is a crazy number of VRM phases... Will probably cost a leg and a small-size decent car :). To be honest TR2 seems like the best buy right now and I doubt Intel will put anything remotely close to competitive pricing...

Ok, so now we basically know how it will look. Here is the Xeon part which I believe is identical counterpart.

Yeah, that is massive board heh. Fits both extended VRMs and 4 dual slot PCI slots, something the MSI MEG can't due to EATX format.

two 24-pin ATX power connectors along with four 8-pin and two 6-pin 12 V ATX power connectors to provide enough power
