POWER10 was just announced with threads 1920 using SMT8,
I think the latest s390 and sparc64 (from 2017) are in the same
ballpark when using SMT. The largest arm64 I know of was ThunderX3
with 768 threads on dual-socket machines. This got cancelled before
it was shipped to customers, but it's likely that others will exceed that
in the future.
