The largest motherboards manufacturer will supply supplement kits Cooling Who will try to deal with the jump to processors with a double amount of processing cores
Generation E-Threadripper 2000 is about to create quite a few headaches for motherboard manufacturers in the market, as part of doubling the number of maximum cores available in it without changing the mounts and even the chipset in them. In other words, motherboards created last year to support 16-core processors will suddenly have to support 24-core and even 32-core processors, with more components that need power and especially significantly increased power consumption - a drastic change that has been very rare in the hardware market so far between generations to each other.
Some manufacturers may prefer to simply avoid the support of existing boards on the leading models of the new generation (no update will be offered) BIOS To allow this) and swallow the disappointment on the part of consumers who expected to receive the promised continuity for years to come, and others may simply close their eyes and hope that their products will be able to cope with the formidable processors without critical technical glitches - but it seems that for Asus The solution will be in support along with an easy upgrade to existing cooling systems.
Bassos have announced kits Cooling News for some of their top X399 models that have already been launched for the first generation of threadrippers, and will be distributed free to consumers who will prove ownership - with a body Cooling Passive for the MOSFETs that are responsible for the various voltage levels in the system and also the adapter for the voltage stabilizers of the processing unit that will enable the transformation Cooling Passive is active with the addition of a modest fan diameter 40 millimeters. It is not certain that the change in the system will be huge with the addition of these components, but it is probably the best that can be done in products that are already sold in stores and even in the homes of customers.
This is not a perfect solution, especially since consumers are expected to contact their representatives Asus And prove that they own a sample board participating in the venture (except for three specific boards it is not clear at this time what other products are eligible for the benefit, if any), but we will accept it - and hope more manufacturers decide to go in a similar free direction and enrich the generation of ready-to-use products. God-Threadripper The second.
