Then it comes to HEDT processors available on the market right now, there's the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X; and then there's everybody else. The processor's claim to fame is that it's based on AMD's versatile 7nm Zen 2 architecture, decked out with 64 physical cores and 128 threads for multi-threaded domination. While we would expect that anyone that could plunk down nearly $4,000 for a Threadripper 3990X would be using it for high-end rendering, editing, or computational modeling work, one redditor has found a rather innovative way to use the processor in Windows 10. Kenny_Stryker in the PC Master Race subreddit used software that allows you to specify a workload for each individual core/thread,... Read more...
AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 3990X isn’t for everyone, but it is no doubt an impressive piece of silicon that doesn’t really have a rival in the High-End Desktop (HEDT) market. The processor comes with an MSRP of $3,990, which is well beyond the budget of most enthusiasts out there that are used to paying a few hundred bucks for a Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 processor. However, there are many that will gladly pay that price of entry for the performance that it delivers. Luckily for those in the market for the Threadripper 3990X, Amazon is currently running a sale that knocks a considerable $540 off the price, bringing it down to just $3,449.99. That big savings could be put towards... Read more...
Last week, AMD officially launched its Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processors, which rocks 64 cores and a staggering 128 threads. Needless to say, the Threadripper 3990X is a benchmark monster and is especially adept at handling multi-threaded workloads. We've even seen it break some world performance records when overclocked to 5.5GHz. G.Skill is embracing the Threadripper 3990X with the launch of a new DDR4 kit specifically optimized for AMD's flagship workstation processors. The new Trident Z Neo kit is rated at DDR4-3600 speeds and features timings of CL16-20-20. The modules operate at 1.35V and are assembled with high-density 16Gb chips.  This particular kit features a capacity of... Read more...
Earlier this month, we reported that our suspicions about a 64-core/128-thread Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor had been confirmed by an MSI leak. And now, AMD has confirmed the existence of the Threadripper 3990X, and it will be an absolute performance beast. AMD is just giving us a high-level look at what the processor will offer, but we can confirm 64 physical cores and 128 threads. In addition, AMD says that the Threadripper 3990X will feature a total of 288MB of cache (L2+L3), while operating within a 280W TDP.  AMD already has bragging rights with its 24-core/48-thread Threadripper 3960X and 32-core/64-thread Threadripper 3970X compared to the newly released 18-core/36-thread Intel...
