For your subsequent PC build, what we once called a “pinnacle of consumer CPUs for high-end users” is $100 some-more receptive today. Amazon and Newegg are offered AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 1950X for $100 cheaper than common during $880. That’s still a large cost tag, yet for that income we get a 16-core, 32-thread, 3.4GHz processor. The downside is that it comes but a imagination glass cooler, yet it does embody a joint that adapts it for use with many third-party glass coolers formed on Asetek designs.
Before we run out and squeeze that ignored Threadripper, keep in mind that a regard preceded Intel’s recover of a 16-core Core i9-7960X. Once that chip came out we reassessed, and a Core i9 is now “clearly a opening leader” among a latest era of CPUs.
That said, a AMD Threadripper 1950X is a improved value, as a opening is still outstanding, and the $1,700 pricing of Intel’s allied 16-core i9-7960X is absurd for many home users, including zealous gamers and streamers.
