The Ryzen Threadripper 2950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core sTR4 Processor from AMD is a powerful 16-core processor with 32 threads, designed for socket Threadripper 4 motherboards. Built with "Zen+" core technology, an advanced 12 nm process, the second-generation Ryzen processor offers increased performance compared to its predecessor. It has a base clock speed of 3.5 GHz and can reach a max boost clock speed for 4.4 GHz. Moreover, it features 40MB of combined L3 and L2 cache, 64 PCIe Gen 3 lanes, and support for quad-channel DDR4 RAM. Please note that this processor has a 180W TDP (Thermal Design Power), and premium cooling solutions are encouraged for the best performance.
"Zen" Core Architecture
Setting the Bar for High Performance and Efficiency
Second-generation Ryzen processors offer increased performance compared to their predecessor, thanks to "Zen+" architecture, featuring an advanced 12nm process node.
Compute Efficiency by Design
The "Zen" core is a "clean sheet" x86 processor design that combines high-throughput and low-power methodologies to create a balanced and versatile architecture ideal for desktops, laptops, datacenters, and supercomputers. Second-generation Ryzen desktop processors have been updated to "Zen+", an advanced 12nm process node offering increased instructions-per-clock performance.
Performance and Efficiency for Next-Gen Applications
"Zen" cores are designed with a high-performance execution engine, large caches, and powerful multi-threading capabilities for cloud computing, enterprise productivity, immersive visual experiences, gaming, and data security.
AMD SenseMI Technology
AMD's SenseMI technology is a set of learning and adapting features that help the AMD Ryzen processor customize its performance to you and your applications, thanks to machine intelligence (MI).
Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR 2)
AMD Ryzen processors can take advantage of the lower temperatures offered by premium cooling to enable higher multi-core performance. Benefits include: CPU speeds above and beyond ordinary Precision Boost limits, scaling clock speed with cooling performance, fully automated; no user input required.
Precision Boost 2
The AMD Ryzen processor monitors its own energy consumption and temperature. When the processor knows it's running cool and quiet, it can raise clock speeds in precise 25 MHz steps for any application without pausing work.
Neural Net Prediction
AMD Ryzen processors are built with artificial intelligence to understand your applications and anticipate the next steps of your workflow in real time. These "powers of prediction" can boost performance by using more efficient paths inside the processor.
Smart sensors monitor CPU temperature, resource usage, and power draw to offer cool and quiet operation to your AMD Ryzen processor. It also includes intelligent power optimization circuits and uses less power thanks to the advanced 14nm FinFET manufacturing technology.
AMD's Ryzen processor features Smart Prefetch, which utilizes sophisticated learning algorithms for fast and responsive computing.
AMD Ryzen Master Utility
AMD Ryzen Master provides you with up to four custom, user-defined profiles to store CPU, GPU, and DDR4 memory configurations. You can adjust the active cores, integrated graphics frequency, and memory timings as well as optimize general performance or fine tune for your favorite applications.
AMD Ryzen Master offers you real-time monitoring and a histogram of per-core clock rates and temperatures, including average and peak readings.
