I was hoping that the quad channel RAM would do more. But, really, the 1900X seems to have very little appeal, unlike the 1920X. If a person is going to spend that kind of money on a CPU, board, and cooling, the 1920X and 1950X are the only models that make any sense.
i dont agree....if they made a 4/6 core threadripper,it would be worth for the pcie lanes, yes is not big deal of money difference, but if there was a 32 core at 2000 dollars for sure the 1900x would sell a lot especially to those like me who use many gpus rather than the cpu ......the problem with the 1900x and 1920 not selling much now or almost at all is only because they have not yes made a freaking 7 pcie 16 slots ws motherboard yet........the very moment ASUS releases boar like that threadripper sales will increase 8 times more in all their lines of cpus.....as a matter of fact ive been ranting quite a lot about ASUS not having such motherboard as first release above the zenith....making fancy gaming motherboards with leds and plastic is not something any true AMD client on x399 cares for nor looks for as it neither offers performance , nor speed, nor cooling and especially impossible to use all the 64 pcie lanes including the tons of 2.0 ones, there is ot one asus board raid 1 0 ready, nor with dual 10 Gbit ethernet (on the motherboard itself)....they are all nice cute motherboards but if we compare them to what these cpus are capable of honestly ASUS Gygabit MSI Asrock , they all just made crappy motherboards worse than junk , that must be because they got doped engineers and project managers that come to the office between a golf game and the other, to check if they met minimum sales rather than selling more and better and meeting clients minimum expectation.......i couldnt care less if pathetic you tubers whose biggest task on a computer is to render a 4 k video in 8 minutes, say about x399 motherboards, they couldnt give jack crap, they know nothing and they dont even know what a minority they are compared to CG artist VFX artist engineers, architects, VR AR developers etcetc...I dont even wanna mention game developers .
Trust me a even 4 core threadripper if it has a WS motherboard it would sell like bread
