If you want to show up at a LAN party like a boss, it's not enough to roll onto the scene with a set of headphones draped around your neck, a gaming mouse dangling over your shoulder, and an obnoxiously loud mechanical keyboard tucked under your arm while gripping a Monster energy drink in each hand. You won't stand out from the crowd. In order to make an unforgettable entrance, picture yourself strolling into the room with a chunky briefcase, which is not actually a briefcase at all, but a full blown PC with a Threadripper processor inside. Yeah, that's how its done. You could do that with the a-XP, a monstrous "Portable Threadripper Workstation PC" sold by Media Workstations. Spotted by a user... Read more...
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...
Maingear is known for its highly customized gaming PCs -- in both desktop and laptop form-factors -- and it is now pulling the wraps off its new RUSH gaming desktop series. The boutique PC maker has partnered with ASUS, which means that the RUSH series is ROG-certified and include ASUS-branded motherboards and Aura Sync RGB lighting throughout the chassis. At the heart of is your choice of either Intel or AMD HEDT processors. In the case of the former, you can opt for up to a Core i9-10980XE Extreme Edition processor, which offers a total of 18 cores capable of executing 36 threads. The base clock for the processor is 3GHz, while the max turbo clock comes in a 4.6GHz. If you opt for... Read more...
In our testing of AMD's monstrous Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor, we slapped the beastly high-end desktop (HEDT) chip into an ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme motherboard, and fired up the latest build of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, with all updates and patches installed. We saw excellent results. However, a question has been raised of whether it is better to pair the Threadripper 3990X with Windows 10 Enterprise instead of Pro. Before we get to that, let's talk about the Threadripper 3990X. It's the biggest, baddest consumer CPU in AMD's stable (read: non-EPYC processor). The chip rocks 64 cores and 128 threads, with a 2.9GHz base clock, 4.3GHz max boost clock, and a whopping 256MB of L3 cache (along... 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...
AMD is claiming multi-core superiority in the high-end desktop (HEDT) space with its newly minted Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, a monster of a CPU with 64 cores and 128 threads clocked at 2.9GHz to 4.3GHz. What's the fun in sticking with stock settings, though? Overclockers have begun experimenting with the new chip, and there is a game of leapfrog taking place. In addition, some benchmark records are being set. First, let's talk clockspeed. For a short while, an overclocker who goes by "TSAIK" set the CPU frequency on the Threadripper 3990X by cranking it to 5,548.7MHz (55.5x multiplier), with an MSI Creator TRX40 motherboard. It would not last long, however, because an overclocker who goes by "SAFEDISK"... Read more...
Although it was somewhat of a foregone conclusion that AMD would launch a monstrous 64-core / 128-thread 3rd generation Ryzen Threadripper processor ever since the initial line-up was announced a few months back, the company made it official at CES 2020 last month. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su took to the stage during a glitzy press conference in Las Vegas, and revealed the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X 64-core HEDT processor we’ll be showing you here today. During Dr. Su’s talk, she disclosed the 3990X’s speeds and feeds and showed the beastly chip taking down a pair of 28-core Xeons worth about 20 thousand dollars, in a 3D rendering benchmark, despite the Threadripper 3990X’s much...

Another work week is upon us, and if you are looking for a way to kick things into high gear, you might as well crank up the heavy metal. We can help with that, in a roundabout sort of way. No, we do no have a gnarly playlist to share, but we can direct your attention to a benchmark database showcasing AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor, which is the tech equivalent of heavy metal. As you may already know, the Threadripper 3990X is a beastly chip. Popping open the hood reveals 64 physical cores and 128 threads of high-end desktop (HEDT) muscle, with a 2.9GHz base clock, 4.3GHz boost clock, and 256MB of L3 cache (along with 32MB of L2 cache and 4MB of L1 cache). It all comes wrapped in a... Read more...
AMD announced an array of new products at its CES 2020 press conference, including its first Zen 2-based Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors and a monstrous 64-core / 128-thread third-generatoin Ryzen Threadripper. In addition to the new processors, on the graphics front the oft-leaked Radeon RX 5600 XT that target’s 1080p gamers in the sweet spot of the GPU market was also made official – you can read more about the Radeon RX 5600 XT here. Thanks to the performance and efficiency enhancements that come by way of AMD’s Zen 2 architecture and the 7nm manufacturing process used to produce the chips, the upcoming Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors are poised to make some...

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...

In just a matter of weeks, AMD will unveil its third-generation Ryzen Threadripper series, starting with a 24-core/48-thread CPU based on its Zen 2 architecture. That's about all we know from an official standpoint. Unofficially, we have some Threadripper model names and specific release dates to share. Starting with the 24-core/48-thread part, a recent entry in the Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS) benchmark database suggests it will be dubbed Threadripper 3960X. As to the release date, and other SKUs, the folks at Videocardz claim to have obtained "highly confidential documents" from a source at AMD.
