    Hi there


    I generally hear 8 Pack getting excited over Intel CPU's for his special projects, it is rarely AMD because for what Ian does generally frequency speed is very important as is memory performance.

    However over the past couple of weeks this has changed, 8 Pack has being talking very highly of AMD's new Thread Ripper CPU's.

    So 8 Pack has been playing with the 3960X processors and has reported back to me the following:

    - 4.50GHz single boost as advertised, this is important because Ryzen 3 rarely hits it single core boost underload, whereas Thread Ripper does so underload, sometimes even more than one core.
    - 4.3GHz all core over clock, which for a 24/48 processor is rather amazing, its a solid 500MHz above what the last generation thread ripper could achieve.
    - 256Gb RAM at 3200MHz stable using the Corsair 64Gb dual channel Vengeance Pro RGB kits.
    - 128Gb RAM at 3600MHz stable using the 8 Pack 64Gb quad channel Samsung B-Die kits.


    We are excited to test the 3970X in the coming weeks as it is no doubt better binned so should be able to achieve higher boost and higher all core clock potentially, particular impressive for a 32/64 part.

    Remember these are aimed at HEDT market, but due to the much improved frequency boost and overclocking results along with improved IPC and memory frequency they of course game exceptionally well too.

    If you want to essentially build the most powerful machine you can for a desktop / workstation then the above pretty much accomplishes that. :)

    The Board I used for testing was the Zenith 2 Xtreme by ASUS....

    Crazy performance and a rock solid platform ......

    Corona Bench on 3960X OC the same score as 2990WX OC......BOOM!!! So 24c new gen rendering = 32c Old gen on rendering. 256gb Out of the box NO PROBLEM!!! This is how AMD should role on all the products.. Well done to AMD with this product, performance and polish.

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/cors...3000mhz-dual-channel-kit-black-my-4cb-cs.html these sticks are also working at 3000mhz with upto 256gb capacity no issues.....

    Oh my.....when a CPU costs more than your complete new build, with monitors and peripherals.

    Great to see some real competition for Intel in the high end space. If AMD can replicate that with their consumer grade CPUs and compete favourably on both price and performance we'll see whether Intel have been sandbagging due to complacency, or AMD really are back on top.

    To be fair these aren't for gamers, This is for someone that makes money doing renders etc...

    This is cheap . Just picture 2+ yes ago when you had to pay even more for intel with less cores for workloads etc . Companies looking to expand can now put what they WOULD of spent on Intel before price slashing for more cores etc

    Seen oc3D review on the Xtreme . Damn, didn't even have latest AGESA and performed well
