Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X new build

I purchased a MB and a cooler for my Threadripper build. The ASROCK MB in my previous post wasn't my first choice. I was only looking at it because the board I wanted was out of stock. I checked it again this morning and it was still out of stock but they offered to back order it with a week delay w...

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X new build

Zen: That is great. The TR 3960X was the ideal processor I wanted all along. It gives the big step up in nps from what I currently have: 35.944.207 npd Intel Xeon E5-2686v3 @2.2GHz 36threads BMI2. (I have 2 X Xeon E5-2686v3 @2.2GHz = 36 cores). If your already running 36Mnps the 3960X would be the ...

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X new build

As a side note: I purchased a 3960x this morning. The MB I'm looking at is the ASROCK TRX40 Creator. It has 3 NVMe slots and 4x PCIe Gen. 4 X16 slots. So it can support up to 4 GPU's of your choice! :D :D :shock: :shock: :D :D

Re: AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

I would want 3 NVMe internal drives for Win10; 7-man TBs; everything else. (No more HDDs in any personal computer systems.) Each NVMe drive uses 4x PCIe slots. 3x NVMe drives is 12x PCIe lanes, I'm not even sure if an AM4 motherboard would support so many NVMe SSDs. ASUS PRIME X570-PRO mobo: Expans...

Re: AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

Thanks to Zen, Dragon & Dann for the replies. Zen's 3950X build looks to be a value system for all the components. However, Giga got rather negative reviews on Amazon so I would be looking for a mid-level ASUS mobo if anyone has suggestions. So I would aim more for a mid-level 3950X build I would w...

Re: AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

One of Threadripper's primary advantages is 64x PCIe lanes. Granted, many of those are used for Ethernet / SATA / Sound / USB / NVMe / etc. etc., but most Threadripper MoBos offer 48x PCIe lanes of expansion (16+16+8+8). So a Threadripper build should be looking at 3x GPUs or 4x GPUs if you're thin...

No giving the players hints! Besides, I don't think his hardware will handle them.

Re: AMD Ryzen R9 3950X new build

Approximate cost performance ratios for the R9 3900X, R9 3950X, Threadripper 3960X and Threadripper 3970X for a new build with a RTX2060 super and 64GB DDR4-3200 ram. The only specs that differ is the CPU, MB (AM4 vice TRX40), and power supply is larger for the two threadripper systems. Does not in...

Ryzen 9 3950 availability

It looks like AMD is about to deliver a little less than 20,000 R9 3950X's to the US market. Less than 10% of these appear to be spoken for. Theses should start becoming available sometime between the 4th and the 10th. If you want one of these you should be ready to pull the trigger. While this may ...

Re: 32 core Threadripper about 100M NPS

Ipman chess recorded the frequency for the threadripper tests. They are above stock frequency. So what? Ryzen chips are not bound by their advertised base clock frequency. They are bound by max current draw(2 different ones), max core voltage, power targets, thermal constraints and lastly their max...
