If this is true, we may see pricing/availability favor 6-core chiplets in the desktop market until demand and supply get into balance.Suggests there should also be a 3700 (non-X), doesn't it? 8 cores, 16 threads, clocked at 3.6 / 4.2 boost, priced somewhere between the 3700X and 3600X.
Sales projections are rosy.

"35MB GameCache" (that's part of the Tech Specs)
But how many 1337cOaReZ?
It looks like the most popular CPUs are Ryzen R5 3600, R7 3700X and R5 2600.Mindfactory reports selling nearly 18,000 Ryzen processors in September, versus less than 5,000 Intel CPUs. That breaks down to 8 out of 10 processors sold being AMD chips. For the month of September, AMD processors accounted for 75 percent of Mindfactory's CPU revenue, at around 4 million euros. Meanwhile, Intel processors accounted for 25 percent of the overall CPU revenue, at less than 1.5 million euros.

Has anybody seen a benchmark where the 3950x trails the TR2950X?
I’d think something would benefit from twice the RAM bandwidth but so far I haven’t seen it...

Ryzen 3000 family has been absolutely crushing it with respect to sales performance.
Mindfactory's numbers for January reveal that AMD garnered a whopping 85 percent of the DIY PC market. That left Intel scraping by with just 15 percent of the CPU market in Germany. Looking at CPU architectures, Matisse (Zen 2) commanded 46 percent of the market, with Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+) coming in second with 23 percent.
Moving to the month of February, AMD further increased its share of the market to 87 percent compared to just 13 percent for Intel. Of all processors sold during February, the Ryzen 5 3600 took the lion's share of the market, with the Ryzen 7 3700X taking second place. When it comes to Intel's processors, the best-selling SKU was the Core i7 9700K.
Comet Lake-S is still built on Intel's aging 14nm process node, and there have been some early concerns that thermals for the processors are getting out of hand. Offering up to 10 cores (Core i9-10900K), Comet Lake-S will be Intel's best chance yet at countering Ryzen 3000 which is available in even more potent 12-core (Ryzen 9 3900X) and 16-core (Ryzen 9 3950X) configurations. With that being said, whatever Intel brings to the table with Comet Lake-S will be followed up in short order by AMD's Zen 3-based, 7nm+ Ryzen 4000 desktop processor family. These processors are expected to launch in the second half of 2020.
