  1. Prior to the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX, the desktop processor with the most cores was the Intel Core i9-7980XE, with 18 cores. With the release of the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX, the most cores you can get on a desktop processor is now 32 cores. RP2-2
  2. AMD product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware. GD-26
  3. Statement of “future-proof” refers to support of current and upcoming technology standards including 14nm FinFET process technology, DirectX®12 and Vulkan™ API support, new I/O technology including DDR4, USB 3.1 Gen 2, and NVMe, and experiences such as VR. “Future-proof” statement is not meant to serve as a warranty or indicate that users will never have to upgrade their graphics technology again. Support of current and upcoming technology standards described above has the potential to reduce frequency of CPU upgrades for some users. GD-104
  4. AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors all have 64 PCIe lanes and 4-channel memory. The highest-end competing processor, the Core i9-7980XE, has 44 PCIe lanes and 4-channel memory.  Specifications from and RZN-76

  6. Based on AMD internal specifications, engineering data, and testing by AMD performance labs as of 04/17/2018. Top max boost clock of the fastest 2nd Gen Ryzen processor, the Ryzen 7 2700X, is 4.35 GHz. Top max boost clock of the fastest 1st Gen Ryzen processor, the Ryzen 7 1800X, is 4.1GHz. This means the fastest clockspeeds on 2nd Gen Ryzen processors, built on the 12nm process, have raised by ~250 MHz. AMD Lab testing demonstrates the maximum all-core overclock on Ryzen 2 processors can achieve 4.2 GHz. Processor testing on 2nd Gen Ryzen processors vs. 1st Gen Ryzen processors demonstrates a ~50mV vcore reduction for 2nd Gen Ryzen processors at specific clock-to-clock comparisons. Test configuration: AMD Reference Motherboard + Ryzen™ 7 2700X, GeForce GTX 1080 (driver 390.77), 2x8 GB DDR4-3200 (14-14-14-36), Windows 10 x64 Pro (RS3), Samsung 850 Pro SSD. Performance may vary with different drivers and system configurations. RZ2-30
  7. Testing by AMD Performance labs as of 6/26/2018 on the following system. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Results may vary based on driver versions used. Test configuration: AMD ‘Whitehaven’ X399 Socket sTR4 Motherboard + AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper 2990WX + Gigabyte X299 AORUS Gaming 9 + Core i9-7980XE. Both systems feature GeForce GTX 1080 (driver, 4x8GB DDR4-3200, Windows 10 x64 Pro (RS3), Samsung 850 Pro SSD. "Power” defined as computational processing power as represented by the cinebench R15 processor benchmark The Core i9-7980XE achieved an average of 3335.2 points in the benchmark, while the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX achieved an average of 5099.3, or (5099.3/3335.2=153%) 53% faster than the Intel Core i9-7980XE.
