AMD Threadripper 2950X 16-Core 3.5GHz

Cores16More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed3.5GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameZen+The code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date31 Aug 2018 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP180WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache1526KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache8192KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache32MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography12nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket TR4The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Threadripper 2950X 16-Core 3.5GHz compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Threadripper 2950X 16-Core 3.5GHz has exceptional performance. Its 16 cores clocked at 3.5 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds and allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is over 2 years old, meaning it is based on aging technologies and will not have the level of support that you would find in a newer processor.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 12 nanometers, the Threadripper 2950X 16-Core 3.5GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, although with a Thermal Design Power of 180W it requires a huge amount of power to run, and will inevitably create a lot of excess heat.
