MSI MEG X399 Creation and Threadripper 2990WX Review



If the 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadrippers have intrigued you then perhaps you would also like a new motherboard to put it in?

one thing you forgot to mention in you TR2 video is that stuff like ZIP compression, AES encoding etc. (stuff that has a heavy memory throughput) is actually a lot slower on the 32 core than on the 16 core.


it is not just some "fancy" server stuff that sees a hit beause of the infinity fabric memory architecture on the 32 core CPU.


handbrake is faster on a 16 core than on a 32 core.


it´s also not a tiny tiny hit... sometimes, depending on the app, it is a pretty big hit.


you really should expand your benchmark suite.


i don´t say that to badmouth TR2. i have two TR systems and will sure buy the 32 CPU model.

but people need to know where the 32 core shines and where not.

Well done MSI for actually sitting back and thinking about the problem , and coming out with an absolute beast of a board , not that i would ever use 32 core cpu , but its nice to dream . Nice review Tom
