Similar scores at much higher prices. And a much lower single thread.

Other news: It's been confirmed that Intel's i9 has SEVERE overheating issues.


You read that right: even with a high-end air cooler the CPU will be throttled after a few minutes.

It basically means it is worthless for 3d rendering at anything beyond a couple of minutes, unless you invest heavily in a costly high-end water cooled system.

Read up on the story here:

And all because Intel decided to scrape the bottom in favour of profits. Intel is looking pretty bad at this point, while AMD is looking better and better.


Great info and I agree with your conclusions. Intel borked this up to some degree while at teh same time AMD finally got it right. I like it. My preferred PC provider is also planning on offering Threadripper systems soon so I'll be taking a real close look at those.

I agree that Intel has been resting on their laurels for far too long during the last several years in which they have essentially had no competition because AMD chispests were complete garbage.

But - that's part of the problem. AMD has been so bad for so long that, as welcome as these new developments are, and as encouraging as the picture is it paints for the future of not only AMD, but CPU tech in general with the market again having some real competition, AMD still has a long way to go in my mind to erase the stigma of their less than glorious past. My optimism is present, but surely guarded.

What are you talking about? AMD has never been 'garbage' or 'so bad'.
They weren't competitive in the high performance segment but they made up for it with moderate pricing. There's plenty of computers out there running trouble free AMD hardware.

AMD Threadripper 16 core is 999 Dollars. Intel Core i9 16 core (i9-7960X) which isn't even out yet is priced at 1699 Dollars

AMD Threadripper 16 core is 700 Dollars cheaper than its Intel counterpart, even if the Intel chip may turn out to be a bit faster.

Do the math: 1998 Dollars buys you 2 X Threadripper 16 core CPUs. 1699 Dollars buys you 1 X Intel Core i9 16 cores.

The CPU that should be really fantastic for 3D rendering boxes, if priced aggressively, is AMD EPYC 32 Cores or even 2 X AMD EPYC 32 Cores in 1 rendering box.

I don't know what the pricing of EPYC X 2 looks like (don't think it has been announced yet), but think about it - only 1 render box to maintain/upgrade, delivering a whopping 64 Cores / 128 Threads of rendering performance.

Its going to be interesting how multi-core CPU performance scales on EPYC. Will a 2 X 32 Core EPYC system deliver superb multi-core performance in CPU rendering? Nobody knows yet.
