Hardly a surprise, but for best results, it obviously pays off making use of all available memory channels with the Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors.

Particularly for HPC workloads and other demanding tasks, the Threadripper PRO 5965WX really benefits from making use of all available memory channels. Especially with today's declining DDR4 memory prices especially in relation to the cost of the Threadripper PRO 5000 series processors and WRX80 motherboards, it's really worthwhile maxing out the memory.

Even for "lighter" workloads like 4K video encoding with SVT-AV1, the higher memory channel count was of benefit.

VP9 and H.265 video encoding also proved the worth of going for all eight memory channels -- or even six memory channels.
