TEST: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX with 32 cores and 64 threads sets new standards in multi-core performance and is currently the best choice for creatives, developers and extremely demanding users who can also call up the concentrated computing power of the AMD processor. Especially remarkable is the fact that the price of $2400 (recommended retail price) is even lower than the much lame competitor CPU – the Intel top model Core i9-7980XE for $2400
Only in the single-core performance AMD has to admit defeat to its arch-rival Intel. In addition, the 2990WX’s TDP of 250 watts also provides more power than the competition, while faster memory and good cooling should also be mandatory. But the test results and the practical performance shown easily make up for these negative points – so well that we’re giving the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX two PC World Awards!
