A really good budget cpu . I would say a base entry level cpu for editing and all that kind of stuff . Very affordable cpu and i think thats a great advantage amazing for budget builds for editing and all that stuff .

Being the most powerful consumer CPU (in terms of core count), you can do extreme multitasking, video encoding/decoding or nearly anything else while costing less than the Intel i9-9980XE or Xeon W-3175X. Beware though, you'll get slower single-threaded performance and you'll get lower performance on single-threaded applications!

The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX is a beast. With a whopping 32 cores and 64 threads this thing is over 45% faster in multi-core speeds compared to the 9980XE! This CPU's base clock is 3 GHz, which is very high considering we have 32 cores. For comparison, a 64 core Xeon Phi is only at 1.3 GHz! Currently, this is the fastest possessor on this website! Although in reality, it actually falls behind the 9980XE as it is slower but the only thing making the website think its faster, is that multi-core speed. Its multi-core speed is a whooping 4,000! Or course, none of this will come at a cheap price, as this thing is very expensive, although you get almost double the cores of the top tier i9 for a similar price. The value however is pretty much trash, just like all of the high end i9's and threadrippers.

AMD's new top-of-the-line Ryzen Threadripper is now here, boasting 32 cores at a base clock of 3.0Ghz and a boost of 4.2Ghz. On paper, it seems like a processor with tremendous value for money, with an MSRP of $1799, $200 less than Intel's top-end i9-7980XE, while offering 32 cores compared to the Intel's 18 cores. However, benchmarks show that this processor, despite its monstrous multi-core performance of over 4000 points in UserBenchmark and over 5000cb in Cinebench R15, real-world performance, especially in Windows 10 (due to Window's scheduler) is severely hampered by memory bandwidth limitations due to X399 only supporting Quad-channel ram (compared to EPYC's Octa-channel support). This means that only 2 of the 4 dies (16 cores) are directly connected to the RAM, while the remaining 2 dies have to go through the infinity fabric. Running the 2990WX on Linux improves its performance in some cases, but the memory bandwidth bottleneck is a hardware limitation. As such, in many real-world applications, the 2950X and the i9-7980XE beats the 2990WX, especially in memory intensive workloads and gaming. That being said, users should consider the 2950X, which is half the price of the 2990WX and in many applications outperforms the 2990WX.

Compare this to almost any processor. Whenever I see it beat something on 64 core (Which it always does) I have to say-Ok AMD-Chill for a few seconds here.

Though in a lot of applications, if you're using windows, you'll find its performance gets hobbled by the poor NT thread scheduler, its still very powerful - for raw multithreaded compute, at the time of release (and writing) its the most powerful publicly available single socket x86 CPU.
