Is it possible?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was gonna and try and split my ryzen 5 3600X so I could have a virtual machine so my brother could play his games while I played mine. So my question is, is it possible to split the 6 cores 12 threads so we both get 3 cores and 3 threads, would something like that work? Or would I need a something like a ryzen 5 3900x so we both get at least 6 actual cores separately for each other?

If you split it you should get 3 cores and 6 threads each,, yes it can work see these LTT videos for detail:-

Hypothetically, yes. But as the most recent Linus x-gamer-one-cpu video (the "his and hers" one, IIRC) showed, AMD + virtualization isn't always easy.

Yes, thats why you have to go for INTEL Chips rather than AMD because is difficult and probably you and i would be lees mature in this than LINUS(he does stuff like this always)
