AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX

AMD achieved a huge leap in performance by moving to its ZEN architecture, upon which it has further improved with its ZEN+ architecture. The company has introduced four new Threadripper APUs this year, which vary from 12 to 32 cores. The high core count makes the APUs particularly suitable for those who use many applications simultaneously, which is often the case with streamers. We have already reviewed the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X, which also benefits from the new ZEN+ architecture and is noticeably more powerful than its predecessor, the Threadripper 1950X.

The new Threadripper APUs are targeted at more than just gamers though. AMD markets its two premium chips at “Creators” and “Innovators” according to the company’s marketing, which is reinforced by the WX terminology that could be a shortening of ‘Workstation X’. The two X chips are still aimed at enthusiasts and gamers.
