J7SC ...more TR3 chipset speculation(s) <> https://www.anandtech.com/show/14963...dripper-listed

MacMus 2970WX was good cpu was good thing 2 years ago... now with new Intel and AMD designs have 2 cores not having direct access to ram is just stupid buy.

New TR is a new clean replacment for those 4 numa nodes crazy CPUs.. Even 2 NUMa is a struggle..

Why? I expect the new 24 cores that will be released at that price.

With intel pushing 18 cores at less than 1000 USD it will be stupid to price it differently

i am wondering myself if this is the missing bridge for X399 to support new TR3 platform .. or it's just nuthing special.

The Core i9-10980XE at less than 1000 USD can be appealing.

Will the AMD 24 core be enough in terms of performance to beat the intel counterpart in that price range?
Depends on your workload. If single thread performance is the main task the host does, then the Intel HEDT cpus at their new more reasonable pricing will probably make sense. Also, the value calculation is not so appealing if you now have to add in once again a new motherboard for the latest chipset, the X299X variety, to fully use the new capabilities of the cpus. Only the new platform is able to use all the PCIe lanes of the new cpus.

If on the other hand primarily you have a multi-threaded workload and need a large amount of PCIe lanes to support peripherals, the new TR 3000 cpus will probably maintain their valuation advantages.

"...the 2950X, we predict, is going to be a very popular product with that 4.4 GHz Turbo. For Threadripper 2 AMD did some gauntlet sorting of the dies, Threadripper 2 uses (binned) the best top 5% dies. In combination with Precision Boost and proper cooling, you will achieve such clock frequencies, in a very linear and graceful model governed by core temp, VRM current. In our Ryzen 2000 reviews, we already talked about XFR2. New for Threadripper Gen2 is that it is available now on all CPU cores, rewarding you guys with up-to 15% more boost performance (at 32 Degrees C). Better cooled systems will offer better performance. With water cooling, you are going to see a 16% higher frequency. So there is some leeway in that turbo frequency."

Yup. Im glad i went with the HK IV Pro for my TR4 build. This block is beefy af, cools my CPU very well.

for a stupid CPU/GPU loop I need 700/800€ and is really crazy

Yah it is. The upfront cost if you're just starting is expensive. But in the long run, the only thing you replace is the GPU block and perhaps the CPU block.

I have HWL 480 GTX + 240 GTS rads for my 2920x. Cools the beast at around 60C @ (all core) 4.2 Ghz encoding movies. 53-56 C when its just mining along with my GPU's or playing a game.

I still have no clarity on the socket compatibility. Unless AMD is releasing the new chipsets for a completely new product category, that might mean the TR3 is still going to be socket compatible with existing X399 boards, sockets and chipset.

Wendell at Level1Techs did a "quasi" performance review of the upcoming TR3 24 core cpu by substituting a 24 core Epyc 7402P cpu in a PC case. Still blows the doors off any Intel HEDT platform even handicapped at 3.35GHz and 2666 Mhz ECC memory.
