AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, the company’s powerful 64-core (128-wire) processor, has never been cheaper than it currently is, looking at prices in the US (and even the UK).
Amazon and Micro Center in the US are currently beating $ 540 dollars compared to the price the CPU launched at $ 3,990. So yes, it will still set you back $ 3,450, which is obviously far from cheap, but it represents relatively good value for the force you get in that piece of silicon.
Assuming, of course, that you can take advantage of the great multi-core performance offered by this 64-core animal – which obviously won’t reach your average consumer. Still, you can always use it to play Crysis without the need for any graphics card (run the game in software mode, directly on the CPU ̵
There’s an added bonus of the 3990X deal at Micro Center, too, by saving you another $ 300 if you need to buy a motherboard with your new CPU.
