    We've got a roundup AMD Ryzen Threadripper reviews, an absolute beast of a CPU with 12 or 16 cores, depending on the model. Don't take a look at the price if you're feeling squeamish...
    I doubt many people will want to spent £1000 on a CPU, but it does give an insight as to what we can expect further down the line in more competitively priced consumer CPUs.

    Apart from a couple of games you have a Kaby-Lake at $329 and a Ryzen 7 at $499 with almost similar and sometimes better results than a Threadripper. Admittedly the newer games do give Threadripper a lead.
    Looks like an interesting cpu though. Power use is high as with almost all AMD offerings which is one reason I jumped ship and went for Intel.

    :cool:

    Although I've said this before, the best thing about it is that it brings the CPU war back - lots of competing on price and performance, rather than a walk in the park for Intel :).
