At this year’s CES 2020, AMD released the 64-core ThreadRipper 3990X processor, priced at $3,990, and went on sale on February 7. The 3900X is based on the Zen 2 architecture, with a main frequency of 2.9GHz, an acceleration of 4.3GHz, and a thermal design power consumption of 280W. Under the luxury parameters, the only obvious regret is that it is not down compatible, currently used and only available is the TRX40 chipset.
Media spoke to David McAfee, AMD Advanced Project Experience, about the details of the processor’s positioning.
“From my personal point of view, heavy-nosis ingress sits won’t buy the 3990X, even though it’s a good game performance.” McAfee recommends that most gamers choose a 12-core or 16-core Ryelon 3000 series processor.
According to McAfee, the 3990X is more suitable for professional creative workers, and the “128 frames” offer an advantage in dealing with multicore-intensive tasks such as rendering and video editing.
In fact, McAfee’s statement is very pertinent, if the simple pile of multi-nuclear pipe, the friend Intel also dare not call the 8C16T i9-9900KS is the world’s fastest game processor.
