The new Sunny Cove has more L1and L2 cache which will make it faster than older processors
Next gen Highend AMD cpus will probably push traditional engines to the limit of diminishing returns and it might just be a battle vs nvdia's next gen top gpu running lc0 or some AI engine rather than intel's cpus.
>Ryzen 3000 7nm will make this obsolete before it is even released.
I think this is more than a bit hasty. The Ryzen 9 specs are rumors for the time being, and everyone is pretty skeptical of the claims. Also should be noted that Intel 10 nm is actually smaller (more transistor density) than TSMC 7 nm.
>And AMD will also make quad cores finally obsolete
'Obsolete' is a bit of a stretch, core count is not the whole picture by far, and in fact, core count + clockspeed effectively isn't either these days. Sadly we are in the era of 'contortions' as everyone tries to eek out more performance from the diminishing returns and increasingly difficulty of making smaller nodes.
You can already see the trouble with their Xeon W-3175X, rumored to costs 4k, still to be release and it will be hard to find. With only one motherboard, the Asus dominus Extreme, that is only known to work and OC the chip. Also requires 2 psu to work and probably some extreme cooling. And this was supposed to match 2990wx by AMD that has been out for months and costs half with more cores. And this is still 14nm, and they already have poor yields. Their 10nm cpus will be a shitstorm...

Although not necessarily for chess from what I've read.
The naming policy is laughable: "Ice Lake" got frozen in time but it's OK because now we have "Sunny Cove"
Considering the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X -
Single Thread Rating: 2215
Clockspeed: 3.5 GHz, Turbo Speed: 4.4 GHz, No of Cores: 16 (2 logical cores per physical)
Typical TDP: 180 W is typically running around $899.99-$961.58.
Addendum: Okay, the hype -"Instead of 14nm AMD now uses 7nm, probably also with EUV ...chances for efficiency on the one hand, but also for performance on the other hand."
Let's see how all this bears out through balls on board experience.
