AMD's 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X has already been pushed to 5.55GHz by OC pros

Sometimes, 64 cores just isn't enough.



Read more about Pro overclockers pushing AMD's Threadripper 3990X above 5GHz.

What will scare the living bejeezus out of you however is the 'Ryze' of power consumption with all 64 cores @ 3800 MHz and full load. That's double what it was initially. So the question is not 'can you overclock Threadripper processors', but rather, 'do you really want to overclock?'.

Not that bad honestly. Not sure what you could expect? 435watts is still on par roughly with other Zen 2 CPUs at around 7 watts per core.

I agree. I am still stuck 5 years in the past. Need to get my head around the direction we are taking with architecture now.

That being said. I looked again at the intro to the Guru3D review. I just love this wording used. It makes me wonder, what Intel's next steps really are. We hear one thing on the media but what goes on behind closed doors is probably far more tense and hostile.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X (64c/128t)

The year is 2020 and today we are reviewing a new processor, a processor that reaches biblical proportions as, when it's fully utilized, it offers so much raw performance there is literally nothing comparable on the market, from any competitor. We review the all-new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, the behemoth of processors has actually made it to the home office and pro-consumer market at prices that will baffle Intel. This mega-core processor has 64 physical processor cores and 128 logical cores, all powered by ZEN2 architecture. This review is about to shock, awe and then some.
Love it!

Lol the pro AMD is surely showing. Not sure Intel will come back to them next time around... kinda just proves their point though.

Intel have released a lot of pointless willy waving CPUs. Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Quad Extreme, 980x, 990x and so on. All of which were pointless because the regular part (or Xeon) overclocked just as easily you just had to do more of it yourself.

Then the 5960x and so on and so on. IE pointless for nearly all users on a desktop PC.

It hasn't stopped them though.

This CPU is daft, but it's really nice to see AMD in a position of "Because we can" rather than "Because we have to". I hope it does well

Not really sure what you're talking about. I was just stating how Intel probably won't be back to Guru3d for benchmark sample the next CPU launch due to the harshness quote above(assuming rest of the article was written similarly).

That said while I agree the 64 core Ryzen cpu is kinda just pointless, that's just me. I'm sure there's a market for such CPUs. Professional environments of course. Hell probably 4k streaming for the lols too.

THB, AMD released this so they had a halo product that Intel cannot match. It's a statement.

Yes, this CPU will be very useful for niche markets, but it won't be selling with insane volumes. These CPUs will have decent margins, but it won't do much to help AMD's bottom line. That said, having a CPU like this will help drive sales for their lower-tier products.
