AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X & 3970X CPU Review

The market for people buying an expensive CPU and using it for gaming at 1080p is likely to be limited. What 1080p does is give a good indication of the CPU’s raw gaming performance as GPU power is sufficient to push frame rates to a level where the CPU and memory limitations can be observed.

We supplement the 1080p gaming results with three games tested at 2560×1440 resolution. We chose Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Far Cry 5, and The Division 2. Deus Ex and The Division 2 are particularly GPU heavy at higher resolutions and Far Cry 5 is a (relatively) computationally-heavy, open-world game.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

We run the built-in benchmark using a 2560×1440 resolution and the same settings as the 1080p test (Ultra preset).

Far Cry 5

We run the built-in benchmark using a 2560×1440 resolution and the same settings as the 1080p test (Ultra preset).

The Division 2

We run the built-in benchmark using a 2560×1440 resolution and the same settings as the 1080p test (Ultra preset).

1440P performance shows much of the same trend, with AMD’s Game Mode in Ryzen Master being equally capable of boosting Far Cry 5 performance to 110 FPS average.
