BTW, the die under the heat spreader is the size of a dime roughly but Rhyzen may have two dies.
Threadreeper has four dies but only 2 are being used the other 2 are dummys, so the round coolers like Corsair H110 only covers a part of the 2 live cores, look at that first video I linked to it will explain it!
