You are a man of many words @EvanDavis
https://www.techradar.com/uk/reviews/amd-ryzen-threadripper-2990wxAs good as this processor is at being a uni-tasker in our benchmark tests, the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX truly sings when you max out its multi-tasking capabilities.
While setting up the test bench to benchmark this CPU, we were gleefully unzipping a dozen folders at a time while installing a handful of applications simultaneously. Likewise, the processor happily exports some 30 odd images in Lightroom, while exporting a short video in Adobe Premiere and still delivers a solid 60fps as we play Overwatch on Epic settings.
In terms of gaming, the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX consistently matches the frame rates the Intel Core i9-7980XE puts out – this is also true compared to the older Ryzen Threadripper 1950X.
However, no one should really spend close to two-grand for this CPU just to game with it. Those looking for the highest frame rates in games would be better off picking up a mainstream processor like Intel Core i7-8700K and AMD Ryzen 7 2700X that outperform their respective HEDT cousins.
Yea that is good advice, if I save for it it'll just take a while before I get it. I want it right away so I have to weigh the pros and cons. I might just hold out until I have the money to buy it no problemIf you can't afford it. Don't buy it!
Never owned a credit card. Always saved for the things I want!
