    with it able to support the 64GB of system RAM i want to have for my next computer as running out is kinda an issue with my virtual machines and it having 16 physical cores it is most likely going to replace my i7-5930k when either it breaks or the x99 board has a fault that makes one or more parts i need to work stop working

    It's amusing to see so many reviewers having different results on the same processor and Motherboard. I have the 1950x + Asus Zenith Extreme, plus standard Corsair 2666MHz rams 4 x 8 GB + Watercooling (S36). Just surfing and watching (your) videos, I get a cool 26c temp with it. And max 68c when rendering a fairly hefty scene from the open source movie Cosmos Laundromat. The BMW Cpu render test I get from blender.org – gets me a whopping 2.17 minutes (that's 137 seconds), and this beats most tests and reviews I've seen who gets anything from 151 to a slow 160+ seconds, and mine isn't even overclocked.

    The AMD Threadripper is an absolute monster for 3D visualization and realtime 3D modeling. And I'm kinda surprised to learn of the many different test results people get, especially reviewers.

    Threadripper 2 32-core confirmed! What crazy times we are living in. It feels like it was just yesterday when having a 6 or 8-core CPU was thought to be a luxury. Look at where we are just a couple of years later! And it's not over yet. Rumor has it AMD are working on a 64-core CPU which is to be revealed in 2019!

    Threadripper is good. But since I am on a budget for a CPU that can do games and multithreaded tasks, I'll settle for the Ryzen 2700X

    Huh? There are seemingly more gamers than 'professionals', intel for gaming is more expensive, while AMD for 'professionals' is like half the price of intel.. 'professionals' are usually smarter than gamers, meaning AMD has people that know their stuff while intel is uhh.. not really. Don't take me too seriously, just a stereotype, it's definitely offensive to you gamers.

    Personally I think I'm on the 'professionals' side, I'm not really into the whole triple-A titles or such games. I sometimes code JavaScript, sometimes play this browser game, sometimes just mess around with stuff, I mostly either hang out with people on Discord or watch YouTube. On a more reasonable budget (for me), I would go for the Ryzen 7 2700X.

    Honestly, i think 8700K or the upcoming 9700K would be better overall, even rendering there isnt that big of adavantage having all those cores, 5ghz almost aways ends up better or similar gains, i also built a TR 1950X setup, and i also hope in time software catches up and get better support for using all the cores, but by that time there will be better cpus out there, i personally think i would have been better with another 8700K, but i needed more PCI lanes for capture cards, raid card and nvme ssds, so for me TR made sense, just i wish software development was faster.

    Can you retest the aero 15x with daul channel memory (alongside with your undervolt) . The aero 15x has a faster version of the MQ chip(90w vs 80w) that is very close to the normal thing but is being held back by single channel memory.

    This same 90w chip scored 16.3k 3dmark firestrike graphics on the asus gx501vs(compared with 14.5k on the 80w chip). Normal 1070s score between 16.3~17.2 so it's worth looking into.

    Yup! The older you get, the more memory issues! LOL! Chuck Norris cooks his bacon on an overclocked ThreadRipper!
    Good work Jarrod! Check out HardOCP for Kyle Bennet's info on TR. Some interesting water cooling solutions. Have a great day!

    something like process lasso that allows you to limit the game executable cpu affinity to cores that are on die0 will give you a "game mode"performance booste in games without having to disable the second die with a reboot

    AMD needs to become competitive in the mobile segment again though. With Ryzen mobile prices they are not there yet.

    I personally wouldn't bither overclocking something that runs hit and is over $1000 as you wouldn't get too much of a boost. Another yreat review Jarrod!

    I'm kinda saddened that it seems u don't utilise its other features like ecc or pcie etc…
    Do u, btw, have any ecc? And have u experience with such?.. And what do u think of it generally?.. How much is it worth, really?
