MSI MEG X399 Creation Review

Blender

The stock MSI MEG X399 Creation is a little bit behind the ASUS Zenith Extreme, whilst when overclocked they very much trade punches like two heavyweight boxers slugging away. No matter, the times here are so much better than any other CPU that it's clearly the weapon of choice for home renders.

one thing you forgot to mention in you TR2 video is that stuff like ZIP compression, AES encoding etc. (stuff that has a heavy memory throughput) is actually a lot slower on the 32 core than on the 16 core.


it is not just some "fancy" server stuff that sees a hit beause of the infinity fabric memory architecture on the 32 core CPU.


handbrake is faster on a 16 core than on a 32 core.


it´s also not a tiny tiny hit... sometimes, depending on the app, it is a pretty big hit.


you really should expand your benchmark suite.


i don´t say that to badmouth TR2. i have two TR systems and will sure buy the 32 CPU model.

but people need to know where the 32 core shines and where not.Quote
