Have you ever seen 32 cores that all operate at 5,955MHz frequency? The mighty 2990WX Threadripper is already here and with it, too The fast (And performance)
The most exaggerated desktop model at least since the FX-9590 officially landed, holding a price tag of no less than $ 1,800 and a quantity of cores that you will not be able to find in the rival in any model - and now we finally get an idea of the full capabilities and potential available inThreadripper 2990WX, which has become almost instantaneous to one of my professional hustlers.
While as expected some of the tests illustrated why 32 cores are not a blessing in many cases where the software was not properly adapted to all this hardware and power, the applications that were adapted to receive any amount of cores you threw at them allowed speeders to break several world records in single processor performance. The first in which we meet a 32-core unit that supports and even cries out for maximum speed: the results of the multi-coreCinebench, Geekbench And the test The wPrime For a single processor were broken repeatedly within a few days by overkluckers who managed to lay their hands on the monster and find its perfect (or almost perfect) action points.
Several speeders were not satisfied with these peaks, which were broken at practical operating frequencies of just over 5 GHz (where they can be operated stably enough until the tests are completed), and mobilized the exotic cooling means to check the top point to which 32 physical cores and 64 cores can be brought. Logic, even for a short enough time to complete the rise of the operating system and document the event - and the answer is 5.955GHz, at least for now. This is of course a new and unprecedented record for 32-core processors, and now it remains only to try and guess how soon we will see the 6GHz threshold broken through the formidable 2990WX.
What is even more insane than the frequencies of the extreme speeds are the power consumption data of the 2990WX in these situations - which rise to a level of over 1,000 watts already at a working frequency of about 5.8 GHz, exponentially extreme compared to the declared maximum consumption of 250 watts at standard factory working frequencies. All this helps to explain, once again, why our chances of seeing Processors Operating by default at 5.5GHz or 6GHz frequencies are very low - at least until we see new mass production technology rise and push aside the silicon that has accompanied us for half a century.
What other surprises might the supercomputers have in store? AMD, While new standards of capabilities and performance are about to be placed in the private market? We hope to discover everything soon.
