1 Cool Thing: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 2nd Gen Chip Review

The top-of-the-line silicon in this new batch of four is the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX, which boasts a gaudy 32 cores, 64 threads, and a 3GHz base clock frequency with boost potential of up to 4.2GHz. It will head up a new line of two “WX”-series processors in the line, distinct from the lesser “X” models. (The original Threadrippers, headed by the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X$749.99 at Amazon, were all classed as X chips.)

  1. Intel has no response for Thread ripper 2. 2990WX costs less than Intel's existing 18 core chip. Intel 28 core I9 will be available later this year, but at what price? Intel currently charges server customers $9,000 for that 28 core chip. Price to compete with TR and risk pissing off data center customers. RIP INTEL

  2. That is a cool kit! I don't think that the 2950wx 32 cores is competing with the Intel 7900x that has only 20 cores. The interesting thing is that you can compare it both price and performance and you'll get two different answers and that is good for consumers. So glad to see that amd is back in the game. It makes things interesting again.

  3. The audio is horrendous on this video, one guy you can't hardly hear and the other is over modulated into hard distortion. Check your levels guys, this is un-listenable.
