So technically if you want an 18-core Intel CPU you’ve got to pay around $2,000 for a 7980XE or 9980XE, whichever model you can find, so good luck with a 22-core part. Let’s move on. 3DMark DirectX Raytracing Feature Test Benchmarks, Watch Dogs: Legion PC graphics performance benchmark review, MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming X TRIO review, Radeon Series RX 6800 (XT) and 6900 XT preview & analysis, Corsair Utility Engine Download (iCUE) Download v3.34.170, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema v1.9.8 Download, ClockTuner for Ryzen (CTR) v1.1 Beta 7 Download, Source code of Watch Dogs Legion is online after hack at Ubisoft, Gigabyte Launches Embedded mini-ITX Motherboard with EPYC Embedded 3151, Xbox Series S has 364 GB of space available for games, Windows timer resolution tool in form of system service, NVSlimmer - NVIDIA driver slimming utility. But yeah, let's start off this 64-core processor review. Avoiding the hideous $1,700 price tag made the product a whole lot more enjoyable. For measuring thermal performance we ran an hour long Blender stress test in a 21 C room using a range of cooling devices. With its 64 cores and the move to the Zen 2 architecture, the 3990X more than doubles the performance of the previous-generation 2990WX and takes massive leads over the 16-core 1950X and the 8-core 9900K. In addition, designing in-engine and testing our games both rely on and benefit from high clock speed and IPC as well. Required fields are marked *. Each benchmark was performed three to five times and scores were averaged between runs. And for a mid-tower with such a ridiculous level of CPU and GPU compute power, thermals were controlled and they system surprisingly quiet, too. Aside from a few select instances (as mentioned, Corona, Blender, NAMD) the 32-core Threadripper for half the price performed on par or with margin. The upgrade from the 9900K to the 3960X was significant, and while Threadripper is significantly more costly, it also allows me to do much more. Chiming in with a TDP of 280W, it has the same TDP rating as its 32-core and 24-core siblings. We see the Threadripper 3990X doing much the same for visual effects artists, software developers compiling projects, and anyone else who can make use of a 64-core processor. Synthetic benchmarks aren’t good predictors of how a system will perform in production, but including Cinebench does make it possible to compare the scores for the systems tested here with those available online for other workstations. Here we have an Asetek Liquid Cooling 680LS, a 280mm closed-loop liquid CPU cooler. The ecosystem for the CPU is strong, but we should warn you that motherboard choice is going to be very important for getting DRAM speeds above 3200MHz, especially with dual-rank kits. Obviously these cards could be put to good use with various GPU compute tasks, but gaming performance is going to be tremendous, even if the application only takes advantage of one 2080 Ti. Which version of Windows do you need? Falcon Northwest’s original gaming PC was the MACH V, appropriately named given their roots as makers of high-end machines for flight sims. As I carefully tried to inform you throughout the first page of the review, these many cores are intended for professional workloads like virtualization, raytracing, video editing, rendering and, sure, bragging rights for some. As with the rendering benchmarks, the 3990X takes top spot in all of the simulation tests by a large margin. Copyright © 2020 IDG Communications, Inc. Yes, it is rare that I feel a bit, well, nervous is not the word I am looking for, but feeling some sort of positive tension to test a product. I would like to give special thanks to the following people for their assistance in bringing you this review: Cole Hagedorn of Edelman You still need enough RAM for your planned workload, but you should allow a little extra. Here is where things for interesting and we almost popped a fuse (literally). I mean, it would be totally fine, but not overkill. Oh my, how times have changed. “While there may be some niche uses for the AMD Threadripper 3990X 64 Core within the greater video editing industry, the 3990X is underwhelming for Premiere Pro. Hopefully the software and operating system ecosystems respond with performance-boosting optimizations so this kind of incredible performance benefits more types of workloads.”. Marco Chiappetta of described Threadripper 3990X as a “beast” though with the same “under the right conditions” qualifier as other reviews. Contact him at jason [at] cgchannel [dot] com. And Falcon Northwest builds all of their systems this way. So, as we have a matched pair of graphics cards, could we somehow integrate a matched pair of PCIe Gen4 SSDs, too? PCWorld helps you navigate the PC ecosystem to find the products you want and the advice you need to get the job done. Of course a high clock speed, at least relative to other core heavy processors, is also beneficial once the rendering process begins.
