Threadripper 2970WX 24-Core 3.0GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The AMD Threadripper 2970WX 24-Core 3.0GHz is a very high-end CPU based on AMD's 12nm Zen+ microarchitecture. It offers 24 physical cores (48 logical), initially clocked at 3.0Hz, which may go up to 4.2GHz using Turbo Boost.


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


It has 64MB 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 250W, making it one of the most power intensive processors on the market.


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 2970WX 24-Core 3.0GHz's high core count and middling clock speed make it a decent but extremely expensive option for gamers. It will run AAA games very well. While a high clock speed is a priority for gaming, 24 cores is excessive for all gaming applications in 2018.
