The 2950X slots right in to where the 1950X used to be, and at a lower price point, and we are very comfortable with that.
Die HEDT-Plattform ist und bleibt mit einem deutlichen Aufpreis zur Mittelklasse verbunden, der klassische Gamer ist dort weitaus besser aufgehoben. Doch das Mehr an PCIe-Lanes gepaart mit den richtigen Anwendungen lassen insbesondere den 16-Kerner attraktiv erscheinen.
Anything with 8 up-to 16 cores are plenty sufficient of course and, with the 2950X, AMD manages to boost four threads to 4.4 GHz as well. That makes this a very feisty processor, which I should say is a hundred bucks cheaper compared to the first gen 1950X model.
If you're looking to upgrade from an older CPU to an all-around crowd pleaser, Threadripper 2950X does not disappoint.
