AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, the firm’s mighty 64-core (128-thread) processor has never been cheaper than it currently is, looking at prices in the US (and also the UK).
Amazon and Micro Center in the US have currently knocked off $540 compared to the price that the CPU launched at which was $3,990. So yes, it’ll still set you back $3,450, which is obviously far from cheap, but it represents relatively good value for the power you’re getting in that chunk of silicon.
Assuming, of course, that you can make use of the ample multi-core performance on offer with this 64-core beast – which obviously your average consumer won’t. Still, you could always use it to play Crysis with no need for any graphics card (running the game in software mode, directly on the CPU – a quite remarkable feat that the Threadripper 3990X is capable of).
There’s an added bonus with the 3990X deal at Micro Center, too, in that you can make a further $300 saving if you need to buy a motherboard with your new CPU.
