  • Threadripper unboxing and instaltion

    Looks like its going to be a major job to install lol

    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

    let's be honest here, it's about time they did something to stop people mashing up the pins

      Wasn't that Slot A as the anti pin mashing solution?

        pins on the board! and SOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many pins! lol, thats going to go wrong. I foresee CPUs fitting in metal tray upside down, flipped wrong way, and fingers /screwdrivers hitting pins taking cover off

        Looks lovely though, what a huge chip

        Are the reports on it being a flop for sure?

          yes, it sucks and is not smashing intel chips in 90% of workloads for half the price at all

            So there are 4 dies in total, basically 4 Ryzen CPUs but only 1 on either side are connected?
            Pretty much making Thread Ripper a dual CPU in a single package?

                I read somewhere a few days ago they're actually using epyc cores.

                  that vid debauer did, he pulled it at amd request and it seems like the 32 cores in those images and es chips are not the same as retail.

                  maybe earlier yields made it a necessity or maybe they were testing 36c64t chip power draw? who knows.

                      seems half the cores are not real, duds to help with heat dissipation.

                        They aren't duds. They're purely silicone spacers. Remember that AMD only have a 1% waste with this new method of building CPUs.

                          So basically using same dies as Epyc and disabling same two dies for each TR chip. With option of doing a 32c/64t TR chip eventually by not disabling any of the dies.

                            No, Kev. The chips are just silicon spacers, essentially. There's nothing inside of them. AMD confirmed that.

                              They are actual dies that aren't connected on an electrical level I believe is the latest news.
