Does anyone know when the 2990wx is expected to drop in price? Also, does anyone know if there's any black Friday deals happening?

The 3950X benchmarks are fantastic.

But yes, we can still see that Corona fares worse than other benchmarks like Cinebench (both 15/20). If it beats Intel by 10perc. in CB, but then looses 10perc. in Corona benchmark, I guess the memory bandwidth may not still be enough? Because the IPC is there.
It will be very interesting to see the TRX/WRX 80 platform and how it fares.

Already building a 3950X one for our key modeler.

Hi Juraj

would you mind providing the specs of your 3950x build? :) maybe with recommendations for retailers as well? I am considering building one too but I am not as oriented in hardware like you

Thanks

Unless I find very good deal elsewhere (ebay.de/bazos/etc..) I buy everything from Alza, can pick it up quickly by car and their warranty process is unmatched :- ).

3950X/Asus Strix-E, Noctua NH-D15, Fractal Define C, 4x Noctua a12x25(PWM) for airflow, Samsung 970 Evo (1 TB) for system drive, 860 Evo for storage (3x 2TB).
GPU of your choice (I still suggest used 1080ti because of low price and 11GB Vram, Vram is everything, it's king).

(This one like all workstations in our office will have Quadro RTX 5000 for the 16GB Vram, performance of which is the same as 1080ti and the Quadro driver is total...unimpressive crap ? If anyone wondered if they are worth the price...if there really is some magic. None...at....all. )

Ciao guys I am kinda new in this hardware mess, but recently I purchased a PC with these components:
     - AMD Threadripper 2990WX 3 GHz 32-Core Processor
     - Asus ROG ZENITH EXTREME ALPHA EATX sTR4 Motherboard
     - Corsair Vengeance LPX 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory
     - Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
     - Corsair 1600 W 80+ Titanium Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
     - Enermax Liqtech TR4 II 280 80.71 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
     - Asus GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB STRIX GAMING Advanced Video Card
and the operating system is windows 10 pro but unfortunately, after running it for the first time and installing drivers the pc is freezing every 10 mins and i cannot update the windows and I cannot install Nvidia drivers it gives me a message that it is not compatible with the windows.
if anyone can help guys would be so appreciated since the client will kill me soon.
Thanks ! ":)

Might be a longshot but I have a similar system to yours, I had issues installing windows and drivers, these all disappeared when I disabled the wifi in the Bios. Your mobo box should have a peice of paper explaining there is a wifi compatibiliy issue that causes system instability.

2 new threadrippers come out later today and a tech reviewer post benchmarks of the new Intel 10980xe... But at the top of the charts are the likely blurred out bars of the new threadrippers which wreck everything.
The 3960x will probably cost around the same price as the 2990wx. Cheaper in cpu price but more expensive on motherboard side.

But yeah if those blurred bars on the 2 new threadrippers coming today. I'd return that computer you just got if you can.

So it seems there might be a 64 core part in the works for next year as well. Surprise! :)

I respect Linus for standing up to what he believes is right there. He did it in a very negative but still tasteful manner imho.

I'm torn between waiting for the 64 core part or getting the new 32 core now. Things seem to be scaling pretty linearly with the new 32 core in the blurred benchmark image above...however the 64 core may not scale as well as I doubt they will be able to sustain as high all-core boost clocks even with an over the top water cooling setup. I can see the CPU easily drawing 700w+ past 3.5ghz all core (if it's even possible to boost that high). So the 32 core might end up being the best bang for your buck?
Vray who?

3990x under 20 seconds would be brutal. :D!

First, im getting 41s with stock 2990wx, not sure how they got 44s but i was expecting sub 30s for new 32c.

Im not impressed at all in terms of Corona performance. Rest of the benchmarks are indeed, impressive.

Now im on the fence with upgrading. I will wait on 64c to see how it scales in Corona/Vray.

Biggest temptation is single core performance but on the other side, im not 100% sure if anything will change with 3970x in terms of 3ds max "smoothness and snappiness".
