AMD has revealed a few new information regarding its new HEDT processors, alongside the new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. One in particular is that only the best (top 5%) Ryzen CPUs are used to make a Threadripper CPU.
This, according to AMD, is necessary for not only improved overclocking capabilities, but also to keep electrical leakage at a minimum. This ensures that AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper processors are efficient in performance output, energy usage and thermal performance. For those who are unaware: Ryzen Threadripper processors – particularly the 1950X – comprises of two Ryzen 1800X CPUs combined together using AMD’s Infinity Fabric technology.
Because of this, AMD’s Threadripper CPUs are found to be rather stable – due to the fact that they’re mostly based off of Ryzen processors – which are already stable themselves. That said, it should be noted that, if you’re only using a PC for light tasks and gaming, it’s best to consider “standard” Ryzen processors – instead of the power hungry, wallet draining Threadripper CPUs.
Those aside, be sure to check out our recent article regarding the official Malaysian pricing for AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. Regardless, judging from recent reviews, it looks like the HEDT market will now no longer be solely dominated by Intel – which is great new for consumers, of course.
