who would've think that amd can go this far, best ws cpu ever.

Threadripper 3970X is "effectively" 0.1% faster than the 9600KF. Seriously? How incompetent do you have to really be? Shocking.

Top end product, with exceptional performance all around, clear win for AMD!!!

"Build to perform. Designed to win". Launched 25 November of 2019, this monstrous 32 core 64 thread CPU boasts 88 PCIe 4.0 lanes (16 lanes used for high-speed interconnect, 176 PCIe 3.0 lanes effective), 147MB of cache, 3.7GHz base and 4.5GHz max boost clock with 280W effective TDP. This EHEDT (Extremely High End Desktop) CPU leads well on nearly every benchmark you throw at it (not even on gaming!) and it's performance well exceed the current Intel's flagship i9-10980XE which was released at the same time as this CPU and costs $979 and Xeon W-3175X which is the previous king that costs $2999 and was released at Q2 2019. For all of that benefits you get from this CPU, you had to pay for $1999 which is way beyond reach for most consumers and were intended for serious content creator.

Comment  cpu.userbenchmark.com/...

Comparison between TR 3960X and TR 3970X, nearly equals single core performance but obviously higher multicore performance as this CPU comes with 8 additional cores and 16 additional threads.

Comment  cpu.userbenchmark.com/...

Comparison between TR 2990WX and TR 3970X, a noticeable improvement over the last gen flagship Threadripper CPU thanks to IPC gains, significantly higher clock and significantly higher amount of cache.

Get a 3950x or intel 9900kf for gaming, but this thing excels when video editing with its massive THREADRIPPPPPAA cores and THREADRIPPPPPPAA threads

So good! I became broke because I'm an AMD fan and I buy only AMD products, AMD for life!
