And then on Page 3 of said story, I saw this little nugget:
Interestingly, some of the original team behind Threadripper joined AMD from the press, with a critical and appreciative eye for PC hardware from years of reviewing a wide range of products.

Hmmm. Does that sound like any AMD employees we might be familiar with at TR?...
