Alienware Area-51 Ryzen Threadripper Edition Hands-On With Benchmark Annihilation

Um...DAMN! Threadripper is no slouch that's for sure! WOW! Sure, this is an "optimized" Alienware pre-production machine but still, the numbers are just staggering. AMD has simply done it. This might be my next processor if I can find a way to get over the 999.00 price tag. It just might be worth it.

Though we're told Alienware is still optimizing the Area-51 Threadripper Edition for peak performance, as you can see it still puts up some rather impressive numbers for a pre-production unit. The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16-core processor peaks at about 3.5GHz when all threads are pushed for 100% CPU utilization. Its final Cinebench score of 2905 puts it about 30 - 32 percent faster than Intel's 10-core Core i9 7900X Skylake-X processor.  When you consider the 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X will retail for $999, the same price as Intel's 10-core 7900X, Threadripper seems to represent an excellent value for enthusiasts, gamers, and workstation professionals that run highly threaded workloads and usage models.
