AMD Threadripper CPUs are being talked about a lot. Not only because they finally offer great competition to the very expensive Intel HEDT CPUs, but also because they unfortunately still have some catching up to do in a few easily overlooked areas.
Memory Performance is one such area, that is more important on Threadripper than on Intel CPUs, because the so-called Infinity-Fabric on AMD CPUs, that links the Dies together and lets them talk to each other, is clocked a the Speed of the Memory Bus.
So, it is expected that having a high-clocked Memory Bus, should theoretically make the CPU-Die communication perform better, with potential performance increases.
Let’s see how much of a difference this makes and if it’s worth it to invest more money into high-clocked memory for AMD Threadripper CPUs:Continue Reading
