Armari AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX – 32-Core Threadripper 2
     Tue, Aug 14 2018 | 1:25P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD may not have quite managed to rout Intel with its Ryzen 7 and Threadripper in the same way it managed to a decade or so ago with the Athlon FX and Opteron. But it’s certainly keeping Intel on its toes. We’ve seen some great new CPUs from Intel to head AMD off at the pass, and the orignal Threadripper really gave Intel’s Core i9 something to think about when we put the two head to head last year. Although the 18-core Core i9 7980XE just about returned the performance crown to Intel, it didn’t win on price. But the latest round could be more of a killer blow. Alongside an updated successor to the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X called the 2950X, which is very similar but with higher clock speeds, is a much more interesting proposition for workstation users – the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX. With a whopping 32 cores running at up to 4.2GHz, this processor has something to offer every type of workstation user.

Corsair K70 MK.2 RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Tue, Aug 14 2018 | 1:22P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is the main reason to spend money on a “gaming” mechanical keyboard vs a regular keyboard? With membrane based gaming keyboards, your purchase depends mainly on features that you can only utilize during gameplay. But with a gaming mechanical keyboard, your priorities in performance to value are more broad. You’re looking for a long life keyswitch that offers tactile feel and a comfortable typing experience as well. This is what we should all look for in a gaming mechanical keyboard, does the K70 MK.2 live up to these expectations? We’ll find out in this article for Benchmark Reviews.

Posted by: STAFF
In preparation for the impending release of its 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, AMD set us up with an array of hardware to thoroughly test the chips. As has customarily been the case when AMD has something new and exciting coming down the pipe, the company sent along a little something extra to spice things up.

AMD Threadripper 2990WX Linux Benchmarks: The 32-Core / 64-Thread Beast
     Mon, Aug 13 2018 | 5:14P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether you are compiling a lot of code, rendering models with Blender, or running various scientific workloads with OpenMP or MPI, the AMD Threadripper 2990WX is capable of delivering immersive Linux performance with its 32-cores and 64 total threads. While coming in at $1800 USD, the AMD Threadripper 2990WX can deliver better performance than the more expensive Intel Core i9 7980XE. Beyond being mesmerized about the performance today with this high-end desktop/workstation processor with the many thread-happy Linux workloads we encounter daily, this 32-core Zen+ processor has us even more eager to see AMD's next-generation Zen2-based EPYC CPUs next year."

AMD Threadripper 2990WX Cooling Performance - Testing Five
     Mon, Aug 13 2018 | 5:14P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The 32-core / 64-thread AMD Threadripper 2990WX carries a 250 Watt TDP rating, thus the cooling performance is quite important especially if you don't want to hit any thermal throttling with this $1799 USD processor. Fortunately, the 2990WX doesn't require water cooling but actually can work quite well with high-end air heatsinks too. For adding some perspective on the cooling requirements of the Threadripper 2990WX, here are benchmarks of five heatsinks and two all-in-one water cooling systems."
