Threadripper 2950X 16-Core 3.5GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The AMD Threadripper 2950X 16-Core 3.5GHz is a very high-end CPU based on AMD's 12nm Zen+ microarchitecture. It offers 16 physical cores (32 logical), initially clocked at 3.5Hz, which may go up to 4.4GHz using Turbo Boost.


It has an unlocked multiplier, therefore it can be overclocked using traditional methods.


It has 32MB of L3 Cache. Level 3 cache is a static memory bank of a processor and it is used to feed it instructions. This processor also supports DDR4 based RAMs with maximum memory support of 1TB.


It has a maximum Thermal Power Design of 180W. It is on par with competitor processors.


Among its many features, Enmotus FuzeDrive for AMD Ryzen, AMD SenseMI Technology, AMD Ryzen VR-Ready Premium, Virtualization, AES, AVX2, FMA4, XFR (Extended Frequency Range)


It doesn't feature an integrated GPU.


The Threadripper 2950X 16-Core 3.5GHz's high core count and high clock speed make it a great but expensive option for gamers. It will run AAA games very well. While a high clock speed is a priority for gaming, 16 cores is excessive for most gaming applications in 2018.
