Default AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X & 1950X Review Comment Thread

AMD's HEDT platform has finally arrived with the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X and 1950X. They're designed to go head to head against Intel's i9-7900X but can their performance match up?

Fina-*******-ly. It's been way too long since AMD put real pressure on intel and there's a lot about Ryzen and Threadripper that have some serious appeals to the enthusiast end of things. The 1920x in particular seems like a really good buy, particularly since you get an decent spread of PCIe lanes. Intel's been awful with that for a while, and to me the X99 line up was the best example of 'Oh you want lanes, well pay the highest premium'.

Might end up doing a TR build after my company's year end in Sept. We'll see how prices are looking in the fall. My 4790k's doing fine, but I'd really like to harvest it for a steambox in the living room, and look at doing another build for the main PC.

Solid review as usual Sky.

Edit: So it looks like with Ryzen / TR AMD's IPC count for the chips is now about the same as intel's which means they should be really good chips for running high-end emulators like Dolphin/PCSX2 possibly even RPCS3 (Gamecube/Wii, PS2 and PS3 respectively)!

Single performance still sucks. Def not meant for gaming.
Only good if you're looking for a home server but at that price you are better off buying an actual server processor and mobo, it would cost less.
