By VBITS do you mean #threads running on the CPU? (The 9980 is like the Intel KNL, in supporting up to 4 threads per core).

Just curious, how much might such a beast cost? (Need not be new.) The bare CPUs can be had for reasonably low cost, but what kind of motherboard are we talking? Looks like it uses standard server-type DDR4 RAM, at least.
