AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X

Type Processor
Price $799 US

Test Setup

For this review, I only had access to the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X processor and I also put the i9-7920X to the test. While both of these processors come at different price points, they do feature a 12 core, 24 thread design which will be fun to test.

AMD did not provide us with any equipment or processors for this review. The motherboards were sent by ASRock while the Threadripper CPU was bought of my own expense. Our review is entirely based purely on facts and precision. The full test setup configuration can be seen in the provided list below:

I would like to thank G.Skill for providing the Trident Z RGB memory, ASUS for providing the GTX 1080 TI STRIX OC and PRIME X299 Deluxe Motherboard and Noctua for providing their high-end NH-U14S (TR4 SP3 Socket). For overclocking, the maximum clock speeds I was able to achieve on the ASRock X399 Taichi was 4.1 GHz across all cores while the Professional Gaming gave an extra 100 MHz boost to 4.2 GHz across all 12 cores. The results are provided in the next section.
