Looks like the 64 core threadripper is just around the corner...

That video supposedly has a couple of oddities in it. A good synopsis of those oddities can be read here -> https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/msi-video-seems-to-indicate-threadripper-chip-holding-64-cores-and-128-threads.html

Still, if I would upgrade it would most certainly be the 64 core version, if it even exists. I am totally unsure if Windows can even effectively handle so many threads but the performance is quite something!

Hi guys,
I read all pages in this topic and need help with RAM
I would like to buy 128gb, now I know that speed must be 3000mhz.
I saw 128 kits for 1300$ and ~700$ so I really need help with the choice.
Can you pls help me, I need a link of amazon or eBay to buy it now.

Depends on your mobo (MEG / Aorus / Zenith ?? ) , i would check ram kits which were tested and approved by manufacturer.

Regarding speed and timings, if you are planning to run it stock, get 2933/cl14. Thats the best you can get. If you are on budget, go with C15-C16 but not higher.

Depends on the price drop on 2990wx, new 24core might be amazing choice. Just wait for benchmarks. New platform supports 3200mhz as well and you can upgrade later to more powerful CPU. But that means you need to pay for better, more expensive mobo.

Remember the "it's not hyperthreading, it really has two cores!" times? :D

I remember thinking hyperthreading was bulls**t haha

The 3950x reviews are out guys. Check out your favorite hardware reviewers. I'm pleasantly surprised at what AMD managed to do :)

Seems good, wonder why Intel chips seem to do better in corona for what they are.

Just 2k points less in CB compared to 2990wx. Thats ...impressive.

43 vs 57s in corona. 3970 might be able to hit 30s territory hmm.

Indeed, that is my thinking as well. For a potential 64 core one I'm wildly guessing it could be around ~20 seconds given the lower clock speeds that will probably be used.

Exciting stuff!

If i manually OC, im hitting 14k points in CB but Corona goes down only 1-2s and i have no idea why.

I tried 3.8 max (air) and i went down from 43s to 41. You can see 2990wx hitting 36s at 3.6ghz in the benchmar results.

So im not sure if we can see such a good times with new TR.

Im not getting any proper improvements , not even with PBO. Corona doesnt react to overclock as much as i would like to and i have no idea why. I was able to hit 3200 on the memory as well but again, zero improvements. I think best run was 39s but that happened only once and i wasnt able to reproduce this time again.
