    @Linus Have you considered redoing this video with undervolting the AMD ThreadRipper for the gaming performance comparison portion? There have been a significant number of videos that show that undervolting AMD CPUs ends up yielding higher results. I do not personally know this to be true and would trust if more if it came from you.

    I'm still running an i7 4960X, but i've always been an Intel guy, but now im definitely gonna go with a threadripper on my next rig, glad to see AMD is giving Intel a run for their money (and hopefully it makes Intel stop running for everyone else's money).

    Please upvote for visibility:
    I currently own a 2990WX and at 3.4GHZ with all cores populated running a compression job through Bandizip, I'm seeing full core utilization AND this 3.55TB compression job which took over FOUR DAYS on my i7-5820k @ 4.2GHZ is now cut to about 12 hours, all for the SAME DAMN PRICE I SPENT ON THE INTEL BUILD. For those who want to call me a shill, please look up my name on IG (no space) and see that I am not invested in sponsors or computing, but I'm a 90's baby who grew up respecting how far these machines have come. I make upgrades with a very different philosophy than most, since it requires strength of will and dedication to know that settling is literally why you can never get ahead, something I learned with every single Intel computer I've purchased, especially when their anticompetitive practices forced AMD to bet on Bulldozer and get slaughtered on IPC, but no one mentioned us creatives rocking 9590's for 80% off leeching electricity off our landlords in illegal basements, building our entire businesses simply because AMD gave us chips that suddenly could render, animate, compress, KEEP UP, and despite the limitations, kept money in my pocket for me to spend on my LIFE, not online.
    I understand this is newer tech, but let's all take a moment to acknowledge that Intel would NEVER offer 28 cores (what a weird number must tie to die size) unless AMD forced their hand, 2990WX is AMD taking BACK the crown, AND WITH CHIPLET DESIGNS, I forsee that with just a BIOS update, I can literally update to the next king from here on out, resell this processor (I never overclock and when you see what I'm 3D printing to ensure perfect TR4 thermal paste applications) and use the difference as a "coupon" to stay constantly ahead of Intel from here on out.
    God DAMN I FEEL GOOD TO BE BACK ON TEAM RED. Lol @220MB/s steady into 3x Firecuda 2TB in a Storage Space as RAID 1. Intel has NOTHING that can offer clock + core and won't even when they hit 10nm (while GloFo / AMD will be well into 7nm by then)

    In the time it would take for them to invent the architecture to get rid of seeking perfect one-die pieces that perform high enough to be top tier silicon, AMD can develop on over 5 years of development from investors (who invest through buying Faildozer and HBM1) to now completely put BOOTS to Intel.
    With the TR4 die space, I forsee 64 Cores on 7NM with ~400w thermals @ 4.3-4.5ghz. If you're on Intel? Stop pretending those socket updates don't suck. TR4 was designed for expanding into the socket size and bandwidth, PCI-E lane accessibility, and more.
    Anyone who was born in 1991 and grew up with a computer from the days of beige towers and CRT monitors will attest that AMD is the only solution for anyone who doesn't throw money away like they would their life.

      Forgot to mention: 220MB/s at highest compression level from .ARW / .JPEG files that normally would trash computers with the varying file sizes and types. The core count basically hides any single process that won't "compress" at full speed and with AMD Ryzen Master Utility, it will turbo any single cores to maxiumum speed based on set TDP.
      Even more appealing is that the AMD software identifies the strongest cores within your processor, the second strongest, and basically tabulates the per-die, PER CORE PERFORMANCE and gives you the best it can give.
      I may not be at 4ghz but coming from 6 cores, 12 hyperthreaded to 32? Seeing every benchmark leaving SPADES of room in the CPU? I'm confident that AMD FineWine is back.

    Yay AMD wins at doing something like 1% of CPU buyers need it to do.... lol. The rest of us, who are gamers, will stick to paying a little bit more for #1, by a significant margin, single core performance. Call me when AMD gets their single core performance up above Intel's for more than a couple months. 9th gen Coffee Lake just released and while it is just a refresh, they've made some nice changes. And the new flagship i9 is only $488 (MSRP) That's $488 for top level Intel, 8 core, 16 thread, #1 gaming performance ladies and gents. AMD can't answer that.

    Poor Linus, he can talk about "pinch of salt" as much as he likes but he must be having a crisis about Intel.
    I would like to see two 8180 CPUs vs. one and two AMD Epyc SoC(s).

    Thank you Linus. Great Vid. Let's not forget that Intel can't actually deliver actual units, being they are outsourcing for their 14NM consumer cpus. Beginning to look alot like Christmas.... For AMD. More Ryzen by necessity for retailers. Then Q1 and Q2 of 2019. Shit's feeling pretty real for them. Already won by Tom's Hardware with Product of the Year Award for Ryzen. Gaming CPU of the year with 2700x (I bought and built with opening day) Hey, know a winner when I see it... My Ryzen system worked immediately, no 4 hours of tomfoolery,btw. ANNNYYYWAYS. Great vid, great reflection on the dual phase cooled 28 core smoke and mirrors show with a mobo that consumers CAN'T buy. At least AMD showed up with actual products you can BUY TODAY AT MICROCENTER at the show. My BOYS! MY HEROES! Didn't want this to turn into a Microcenter commercial. But that's where I buy on release day. And weekly-half my paycheck goes there, lol, and that's ok! You want it, they got it. Period. And... If.... They were out of stock of anything... BITCH TO ME.. I'll escalate to the buyers. Power to the people. The builders. The people who need it NOW. If you are reading this and in the Denver Metro area, and want a 2990 WX system/build, stop in and ask for Glenn or Nate. Tell em Justin sent you. Mad server power in a desktop form factor, for ridiculous cheap price, scale wise. Golden.... Get the extras so they don't lose their ass while hooking YOU up. That's how they roll, so please realize;) You have two new friends at Microcenter, and if you're not in our area still drop my name. Might hook you up in the next two weeks.
    Really!!?? Yeah.. Try it. Yell as loud as you can, "AYYMD!!!!" as you walk into your local Microcenter. Scream it loud, especially if you own our stock. Walk into BYO section exclaiming again. OWN IT!!! No promises but bet you'll get extra special treatment. Ask for the two top sellers if the store, and tell em Justin from AMD sent me, and this is what YOU want. Best, award winning processor (Ryzen 2700X) and a mobo combo discount . There waiting. Threadripper 2 2990 WX if you're a baller like that, or truly can use it as a proper Prosumer. Photographers, Photo editors using Adobe Photoshop(Uses every core, thread and Gb of RAM you got!), video editors, audio editors, (Dr. Dre!!), hey you know who you are and you need more....On that note.... What up Dre!? Still here. Just been busy... Those in the BIZ KNOW... Reality is stranger than fiction.
    Still the same Justin, just working for EVERYONE (AMD partners) now... Ray tracing for over 10 years with Vray. Yes, on the right side, AMD partnership. Can't say nothin. Just wait and see..... The future is VERY bright... Ummm, the Ring of Fire is just getting rolling!!?... Um, yeah. No coincidence. Watch and learn my friends...... Watch and learn. HAHA,LOL

    We have bought all Intel CPU's for as far as I can recall, our server room and all workstations have Xeon CPU's and all our desktops use the iSeries. This month after seeing what AMD can actually do at a far better price we will be buying our first AMD workstation in over 20 years. You just can't argue the performance vs dollar mark on the new chips, you'd be foolish to think different, either that or you are one that lies to yourself a bit too much. I have always loved Intel CPU's but this is a game changer for the workstation market. Intel shadowing PCI lanes and such just makes me feel like it is the right move. Sorry Intel you have had a good run but AMD has just proved them self to me and I can't believe they actually won me over. Crazy times.
