Today we have ASRock’s latest addition to their Threadripper line, the X399 Phantom Gaming 6. This motherboard appears to offer most everything that the other boards do but comes in at the lowest price on the market. Let’s take a closer look at ASRock’s budget X399 motherboard and see how it handles itself.
Today, AMD has released its latest Threadripper CPU, dubbed Threadripper 2, with a monster 32 core 64 thread 2990WX and the 16 core 2950WX. The new parts are based off the Zen+ architecture and continue AMD’s onslaught of additional cores trumping similar processors from Intel by price and number of cores and threads.
The last few months have seen a flurry of CPU releases as the RED and BLUE teams go toe to toe, vying for their piece of the mainstream PC market”pie”. Today AMD has announced the pricing and availability for additional CPUs including the long awaited THREADRIPPER aimed directly at the HEDT ( High End Desk Top) segment. This niche of the enthusiast market has been dominated by Intel for years but I have a feeling that’s all about to change.
