Threadripper Ragnarok | Level One Techs

AMD and Intel have simultaneously launched new CPUs today: Intel is launching the 10980XE (18 core); the 10940X (14 core); the 10920X (12 core); and the 10900X (10 core) on the existing X299 platform (though we will see many motherboard refreshes!). AMD is launching just two new CPUs today -- the Threadripper 3960X (24-core) and the Threadripper 3970X (32-core) on the new high-end TRX40 motherboard platform. Allthough the 16-core 3950X also enters retail availability today, we reviewed that chip previously.

It points to “SSD February 2019 Benchmark”

Good catch. Also same for the link in YouTube.

thanks, fixed
note that I’m not sure avx512 was working properly. The 7980XE for avx512 was for sure working, I believe. I was curious about 10980XE performance w/ and w/o avx512. I will have to retest that.

Is the artifacting in the video just me?


I noticed it too.

Also there is a mistake at 9:00 benchmark table where the 10980 is referred to as an 18 core part but the graph shows it as 16 core which was a bit confusing ans I was reading and hearing different things.

@nx2l thanks for that I was a little worried, this was the very first video I watched on my Mini PC after moving, though it might have broken in transit.
