    Default AMD Threadripper Reviews

    A few weeks back we got international pricing and a few days later we got local pricing which left us with a bit to be desired. Last week we saw unboxing and mounting videos with one video referring to how easy it is to destroy your board by just touching the pins accidently.

    Here are some of the reviews for AMDs enthusiast range of CPUs.

    Gaming performance is slower than the 7900x and 7700k from the looks of it.

    Yeah but you also linked the low res results. What matters is 1440p, 1440p ultrawide and 4k.

    Just like I stated in my other thread its not the gaming king of the hill but if you look at non-gaming results its the winner in nearly every instance.

    1440p and 4k hits the GPU threshold too quickly to really measure the gap.

    The reality is that it's a poor choice for gaming. You'd be much better off going for a 1800x or a 7700k if your primary focus is gaming.

    True for both accounts. I'd even say the 1800x is a waste and you shouldnt consider anything over the 1700. But that is the thing though. Your setup choice has a combo. So for someone like me a 1080p doesn't matter since I game at higher resolutions.

    There is something that bothers me in this benchmark though. Their Witcher 3 1080p hits 100fps across the board. I'm running at ultrawide 1440p and getting the same results.

    A bit of fun between AMD and nVidia:

    I just don't know TBH. I remember way back how this discussion was very much the same when Quad cores came out. Dual cores were still the kings of the gaming world, and quads were seen as useless because the games didn't utilize them properly. I am building a system where I don't want to change the CPU until 5 years from now, and I think going with more cores for now is my best option. All the Assassins creed games are gonna run like a bomb. Besides if the CPU bottlenecks one can always just use DSR lol. AM4 platform commitment also a big one. I have just been on Intel for so long it's time to change lol.
