    Phoronix: AMD Threadripper Is Looking Good, At Least Under Windows

    AMD's embargo has just expired on the Threadripper performance figures. The Windows numbers at least are very positive...

    Michael - if you've got time to kill during the benchmarks, I'm really curious how the 1950X will perform using softpipe or llvm-pipe. With so many threads, I figure at this point some games (older ones, like OpenArena) would end up being playable, at least on low detail settings.

      Computerbase has benchmarked TR with Linux applications: https://www.computerbase.de/2017-08/...endungen_linux

      It is just an overview of several benchmark put together in one graph. Not very detailed but a good first impression.

        I have an 80 thread Intel system coming in a few days I do plan to have fun with LLVMpipe on.

          Nice! It'll have been roughly 25 years since games were capable of being played comfortably using strictly a CPU. I'll be impressed if this Intel system and/or Epyc build can do the same.

            Leisure Suit Larry does not require a 3D accelerator, neither does Kings Quest 3. Only these newfangled games that millennials play have this requirement. I don't see why anyone needs more than EGA graphics, for gaming anyways.

              Thanks for the link.

              About what I expected as it mimics Ryzen behaviors (except the segmentation stuff).

              Strong on threaded apps and floating point. Weaker on single threaded stuff.

                Test Drive wasn't too shabby in all its CGA glory

                  My Ryzen 7 1700 is being RMAed, and a staff of an agency told me that the segfault problem is just a silicon manufacturing issue.

                    Yeah right, make sure not to link those Windows benchmarks. Then this article might get remotely useful.
