Coreprio Utility Doubles Threadripper 2990WX Performance in Some Scenarios

There appears to be a bug in the Windows kernel.

Read more about AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX getting up to a 2x performance boost thanks to a Windows fix.

One of these days I'll change my name to Mark Bench

Reminds me of Bulldozer, took years for them to patch the kernel with proper support iirc, the FX8350 ended up on par with a 3570 in many games at the time after like a year of Windows fixes, and it still never came near its Linux performance in comparable applications(Though mostly due to the prevalence of Intel's compiler on Windows, which at the time was known for using slower codepaths if it detected AMD hardware and would actually improve performance if you tricked it into thinking it was Intel hardware).

Doesn't surprise me, Windows is largely developed on Intel hardware, Quite possibly the reason why MS are super lazy with optimisations for AMD CPU's.
