AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16 core CPU @ Amazon.fr - £756

20
Found 28th Oct
Some absolutely cracking deals around on this particular CPU at the moment. If you need a monster of a processor with as many cores and threads as possible, this simply cannot be beaten, and the value for money is extraordinary.

Dispatched & Sold by Amazon.

Once in the basket the CPU is €849.90, then the shipping is only €6.00.
Paid for in € with a fee free card, including shipping it comes a total of €855.90, which translates to £755-757 depending on the card used, and exchange rate when you check out.

If I had that money for a CPU I'd be looking to an i9


You'd be looking at twice the price - unless you don't actually need 32 threads, but then why are you here?:)

Is there actually any software out there that will seriously take advantage of 16 cores?

Quite a few, especially in the world of video editing.

stop thinking of a single program that needs x amount of cores, then you start see things differently

insane price [heat added].. I can't wait to see what the 2018 ryzen refresh will do ..

As Andy said, video editing software and potentially the new gen of games coming out. Most utilise hyper threading now.

I'd presumed that was the case, but surely this is more appropriate for as you say, high end video editing, photo manipulation, 3D design, etc. than a game? I couldn't imagine spending that kind of money for gaming, but each to their own given the amounts I spend on collecting old Macs, 8-bit hardware, etc.

I'm not saying for the average person to buy this cpu and the mobo (which will set you back around £1 to £1.2k) but the problem that has sadly come around is that people think oh x game only uses 2 or 4 cores there for i only ned that amount of cores. You actually need a couple more cores.

What a cracking price. I'm eager to see what they're doing for the 1920X. Either of them would be so damn useful for my set up.

Not to say you're wrong but I'm unsure why anyone would take that logic because, take the i5 4670k and i7 7700k as examples, they are simply quad core. You gain extra THREADS (not cores) on the i7 range due to... hyper threading.

A quad core is far more than sufficient in gaming.

and you have totally missed the point..

1. cores vs threads. typically the logical threads are slower than a core will be. And avoid confusion i only mentioned cores because i was talking in a general sense and not a specific cpu.

2. so a mobile arm quad core is fine for the lastest games on a desktop ? well it is, according to your comment!

3. just because x amount of cores is fine atm (for the games you, yourself play) is not indicative of other games and games that will be released in 6 to 12 months .

4.so does windows/linux/mac os run on fresh air, they need cores to function - if you have ever chocked a system either by cpu or ram by running 3d programs you will appreciate more cores ..

anyways my point stands but if you want to preach that you should buy a quad for yeserday's games because somebody else said it to you - thats fine.

...because most people will probably have a Quad Core CPU. According to Steam's hardware results of September, 58.66% of their survey was made up of some form of quad core CPU (I'm assuming this could be including hyper-threaded dual core CPUs) and 0.57% using 8-core CPUs.

2. so a mobile arm quad core is fine for the lastest games on a desktop ? well it is, according to your comment!

Considering we're talking about Desktop gaming, it's irrelevent.

3. just because x amount of cores is fine atm (for the games you, yourself play) is not indicative of other games and games that will be released in 6 to 12 months .

Considering there are still some enthusiasts still running a 2600k rig, I'd highly doubt that. It's only really now games are starting to take advantage of hyper threading - most games will still use 2/4 cores so I'd say it's still true come 12 months.

4.so does windows/linux/mac os run on fresh air, they need cores to function - if you have ever chocked a system either by cpu or ram by running 3d programs you will appreciate more cores ..

This...kinda...goes without saying.

Interest. Like 98% of those looking at it. Not to actually buy.
Which is essentially the whole point of this site and shopping in general.
And have a look around. At Scan for example. They have i9 for not a huge amount more.
And it wouldn't be the first time an Intel was faster than an AMD with more cores

What about this, it has a 16K RAM pack included.

[Image] What about this, it has a 16K RAM pack included.


If I remember rightly that 16K RAM-pack was £50 in 1981 - was just too much for me at the time, just like this processor - I always seem to be waiting for the tech price to drop

I can't wait til 2020, whenI'll be able to afford one of these!

Why are people here discussing this and gaming in the same breath?

This is for workstations and servers - for people who do serious work. And for that, it's a very good price. Hot!

If you think this is poor value, then chances are that you've no clue how you should be using it. Move along please.

You'd be a real sucker for buying into this exclusively for gaming at the moment.

Amazing deal.

"Presumably"?

I'm sorry, but I remain incredibly skeptical of this comment in terms of gaming performance.

Even suggesting that the 'new gen of games' might utilize 16 cores/ 32 threads at all is just not something I can let slide.

The Ryzen TR has a specific mode that makes sure that minimum use of infinity fabric is made to make sure games can take advantage of the pitfalls that TR has when it comes to using all cores.
