Re: AMD Threadripper 1950X CPU

Well there are not any good performance review yet at AT of THG of the high end CPU's but here is a review of some of the cheaper models.

Power Consumption - The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 CPU Review: Zen on a Budget

From the review above, my understanding of the low-end CPU's is as follows.

Value: AMD=Intel
Performance: AMD = Intel
Power Consumption: AMD 2x > Intel

So, you get the same performance for the same money but AMD sucks 2X more power. That is not good. That is like saying AMD has twice as many circuits but equal performance or if power were equal, AMD would have half the performance. Plus I am being kind on the performance. If you look at gaming performance, Intel wins no doubt. We will see how the big boy CPU's do but I think it will be the same results.

IMO, Intel has been designing their CPU towards efficiency. Getting the 3D level stuff and never ending smaller dies. If you attack this way, you will always be able to run cooler and faster. I don't think AMD is 2X behind on performance, they just do not have the efficient architecture Intel uses.
