Since 7nm has 50% power reduction, adding 50% more cores gets you back to the same power envelope or close to. The other thing you need to consider is ROME has PCIeX 4 and I'm no sure how that will work with the current boards. We know Amd was already working on ROME/ ZEN2 while designing the socket so they could have made it to support 64 cores.
It's also a mix of 7nm cores and 14nm IO core. I know I wouldn't want to be in the team sorting this out :p

I think that Rome will work at PCI E 3 in current Mobos, if you want PCI E 4 you need a new Mobo. Perhaps 32+ cores CPUs will require a new Mobo too. Could also be that even using same socket there is no compatibility (like 1151, Coffee Lake can't be used in 100 o 200 Mobos).

Can't wait to build my new rig... I'm still with my i7 860 ^^
I have a i7 3770 still in an empty rig, but I'm tired of reinstalling all of my software and configuration...

Well... you fixed it one place but not everywhere... 128 lanes of pcie 4 not 96

??? I don't understand your post ... (sry for the dig up)
Sry... I clicked reply on the article and it replied on the last post for some reason.
The article has the incorrect amount of pcie lanes. Rome has 128 pcie 4 lanes not 96.
