A notebook with AMD Threadripper? A maker has already made it
Putting an AMD Threadripper HEDT CPU inside a notebook might seem like a really extreme thing, but someone was determined to make the idea a reality. As pointed out by Hackaday, Jeff from the YouTube channel Excursion Gear made, in a completely amateur way, a laptop of his own equipped with a powerful AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 1950X processor, equipped with 16 cores and 32 threads.

To build that which Excursion Gear called "the most powerful laptop in the world", Jeff used an HP case originally intended for a media center PC, which was later worked on to make it only a few inches thick as the notebook chassis. Specs-wise, Jeff used an AsRock X399M Taichi Micro-ATX motherboard, 3 2GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3600 RAM, and a Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. As for the display, Jeff used an 18.3 ”portable panel at 4K resolution. The Dynatron A28 1U low-profile passive heatsink was used for the cooling system, also designed for rack mounting for EPYC-based servers. To top it all off, two Delta BFB1012HH fans were used.

The most difficult process, according to the maker, was figuring out how to run the notebook on battery only. Jeff ultimately chose to use six 18,000mAh power banks, paired with a 400W HDPlex ATX SFF power supply. The six power banks combined produce up to 390W of power, more than enough to supply enough power to the system.

Whereas Origin PC allows you to run up to one Ryzen 9 5950X on its laptops, probably the one to be made by Jeff isn't really the "fastest laptop in the world." However, it is an interesting work from an engineering point of view.
