    We'll double it up once again, meet this 24 core processor with 48 threads sound at a price of 1387 USD? Yeah, it might be a mighty compelling product. AMD is back at it again in their Core wars as t...

    Seems the Windows scheduler scales things a bit more evenly than the Linux one. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. On Linux, the 2970WX performs much closer to the 2990WX than the 2950X, for what I assume to be a bottleneck in the InfinityFabric (where the 2970WX is less demanding, and therefore its cores are less bottlenecked).

    Small correction here Hilbert but I think you never elaborate on what those 2 issues were. Like a sentence got deleted or something.

    Awesome review, Its good to see the Dynamic mode offering some good performance in 3dmark without enabling gaming mode, Do you happen to have the version of AMD Ryzen master with dynamic mode available?

    Are you planning to re-bench the 2990wx with dynamic local? the Timespy results doesn't suggest you did.
