How come a ThreadRipper CPU is so rare here!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I literally maybe have seen 1 person with a ThreadRipper as everyone uses Ryzen ?  I know the single core speed blows balls and what not but 32 cores 64 threads sounds juicy.  However the 18 core i9 9980XE beats it at most benches.  How is this possible with 14 less cores.  I think the 9900k came out and killed the Ripper.

Not everyone has money to blow on threadripper.

 

The vast majority of our audience here at the LTT forums uses their PCs for gaming and/or are young adults who don't make much money. Because of this, we would prefer to choose the more budget option when available and pick the thing that will "do the job" rather than the overkill thing.

 

I personally use a Lenovo E540 laptop with an i7-4702MQ, 12GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD as my daily driver. It works just fine for my needs which are going on this forum, youtube, pornhub, social media, and checking my bank account. I don't need anything more than that.

Far fewer people use HEDT builds than mainstream builds, regardless of whether they go team red or team blue.

 

For the record, Threadripper's single thread performance doesn't blow chunks. It's about the same as mainstream Ryzen CPUs.

Because most people use their PCs for gaming or light work load like 3d rendering. I have somewhat decent gaming PC that I've upgraded this week, and a laptop for pornhub work. They work fine for gaming and CAD/small engineering projects.

Most people don't need that many cores.

People seem to think it's cool to talk about all the video editing they do these days. I blame MacBooks. Their rise in popularity as the "trendy" laptop, along with their popularity among professional video editors seems to have conflated the two ideas. So now video editors are cool.

A lot of people want others to think that they need these HEDT platforms like Threadripper because they're so much more of a video editor than the average Joe, but they generally don't want to spend the money on them. They know deep down that it would be a total waste (for them). They would blow a shitload of money on the system, produce a couple of YouTube videos that nobody ever watches, and then revert to using it for gaming.

So you get a lot more talk about these platforms in the mainstream consumer community than you might expect, and it makes you feel like there should be more of these systems out there than there actually are.

That's my opinion anyway.

Yeah you are right.Gaming the threadrippers run just like whatever half if Ryzen cpu its two of.Work load depends if the program likes amd or intel but even then its a small difference in time/speed.

I made two wish list on newegg the other day.A 1920x and 2700x built the same.The 1920x was maybe 200 us more for 4 more cores.It would be 150 more if i switched out motherboards for the x399 phantom gaming 6.
