i think TR has new stepping (ARK improvements) :infinity:
XFR seems to affect 2 cores at most from what I read. At least in TR. Similar to boost 3.0.
Oh man that is impressive results! 16 cores @ 4Ghz. Given the fact that Intel just said that the i9 9780 XE will only be able to boost to 4.2Ghz on 2 cores... I personally think AMD has struck gold with these Threadripper CPU's, but time will tell...
Yes I agree V-RAY is lot faster with GPUs than with CPU, but this comes with some cons like you can't use all features with GPUs
With GPUs you are limited by VRAM size and if you do very big scenes then 12GB is not so big framebuffer
In many cases I prefer to render with Corona Renderer or AMD Pro Render where I'm limited just by CPU and RAM size and if I do renders with GPUs then Octane and IRAY and SuperFly(Cycles) I do mostly use
Hope this helps
2 Cores on R5 and R7 but if is 1 Core for CCX?
AMD is who would know, apparently...Intel right now is looking to get some of that glue for itself... Must be really good glue--not so good for the horses, though...
Yes, these days..what's in a "100Mhz"...? Agreed.
I wonder how running Crysis with Ti SLI or Vega CFX would be on this beast?
Will suck, Crysis is bound to 2 threads/cores and doesn't scale so IPC is more important so clock speed is the main factor and Intel will win in that with a 7700
I think he was making a joke (are you?). If you want to take his comment literal purely for the sake of bringing up Zen and 1080p gaming, I think you are very wrong. Crysis is old as dirt. A modern CPU with Ti's is going to smoke Crysis. Not exactly the definition of "suck" in my opinion.
Not really, my point is it wouldn't use all the cores, so it would suck in that respect
Here's a thought about Crysis that isn't a joke:
I wonder how performance would be running Crysis (low settings, obviously) on a CPU renderer. I doubt Threadripper would be good enough to attempt this, but a dual-socket 32-core Epyc ought to be able to play older games at a low res and low detail with playable framerates, where Crysis could be the ultimate test.
The thing is, I'm not entirely sure if there are comprehensive software renderers for Windows. This could be possible in Linux, if Crysis were run in Wine.
