AMD took the CPU world by storm when it launched the Ryzen series a few years back. It brought along unparalleled core counts at consumer-level pricing which made it accessible to the hobbyist and professional alike.
The latest CPU in the ‘Threadripper’ series is the 3990x which has a bonkers 64 core/128 threads. If those numbers don’t mean anything to you, just understand that it is designed for massive parallel workloads.
The company has partnered with Red cameras to showcase just what the chip is capable of – 8K at 24fps seems to be no problem for this monster of a chip.
I feel like I am editing in 1080p
Normally, for such high-resolution videos, you have to work in a smaller resolution timeline to avoid stuttering during editing. The 64core chip, however, seems to cut through the 8k video like a hot knife through butter.
You can shoot, edit and export your video in 8K saving you time and hassle that comes with having to generate lower-resolution copies.
We will take every single core you give us thank you very much
Although the 64 core 3990x is a niche product, there are 24 and 16 core CPUs available in the lineup which might be a better fit for you. You can watch the whole video below.
