Can AMD RIP the Core i9? – Ryzen Threadripper

Buy CableMod’s New AIO Sleeving on

AMD’s finally back in the HEDT space with Threadripper – But can they go toe to toe with Team Blue?

* CORRECTION: There is a table showing the Threadripper 1900X as having a 4-core boost clock of 3.7 GHz despite having a base clock of 3.8 GHz. This is an error, and should be 4.0 GHz. Its price should also be $549. Further details are unknown at this time. Sorry about that.

AMD is getting closer and closer to matching Intel. It’s exciting to see this competition. Being the consumer, we’re about to see a massive influx of performance and cheaper CPU’s. What a great day to be a PC enthusiast

John E says:

I’m putting all my investment on Threadripper 1950x because of people saying it’s good for workstation and I’m a game-developer with below the average PC with i5-6600k with a GPU of GTX 1060 3GB ATM, but I’ll be upgrading to a 1070 or 1080Ti soon after I have my motherboard and DDR4. Yeah it’s a fuck-ton of cash and I just invested so much money onto my workstation.

Intel’s “checklist” seems even more desperate after Spectre and Meltdown.

SGX is a power management feature?

Sicarius Peremo says:

When people are using CS:GO as a Benchmark 😛 Benchmarks are useless all together though, real world testing is the only thing that works, especially with all the corrupt payoffs, to slide the scores towards who pays more! Retards still believe in that crap, just like trusting a Doctor, who really doesn’t know shit!

sir_lolsalot says:

Okay nice. We have the threadripper.
But where’s the breadripper?
