Custom PC issue 197 cover

In Issue #197 of Custom PC, we explore the latest massively multi-threaded monsters from AMD and Intel. We investigate the changes to AMD’s Threadripper CPU design, try out the new 24-core and 32-core CPUs, find out which memory works best with the new chips and also try Asus’ top-end ROG Zenith II Extreme TRX40 motherboard. Meanwhile, we also put AMD’s 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X through its paces, and try out Intel’s new 18-core Core i9-10980XE.
