Good to know with 8.2, should save having to flick options on and off with these extra tools.

That is interesting. I hope this all gets sorted when I move over to a TR. 7nm 3rd gen with the IPC gains and rumors going to 40-48 cores my god people the future is looking great.

I'm using a 2990WX and get 465-500 FPS in the benchmark.

Hardware specs are:

AMD Threadripper 2 2990WX
32GB Memory
Samsung 970 EVO
Asus X399-A Prime Mainboard
GeForce Quadro P1000

Total cost was around 3000$ and the machine is an absolute beast.

The 2990WX should be almost double the speed compared to the 2950X.


edit: I can totally recommend the Noctua NH-U14S with two fans. Even after several dozen hours of rendering the CPU stays at max boost and at around 60°C.

What are you db levels like , I know the Noctua are very quiet, but you didn't mention the rest of your cooling setup?

But regarding MQ and his 60 degrees after hours of rendering, I think our watercooling has a problem like too small for the big TR4 cpu...

I use the following setup:

Case:
-Phanteks Enthoo Pro with removed HDD bay
Fans:
-200mm in the front, blowing in
-140mm in the rear and top blowing out
Cooler:
Noctua NH-U14S with two fans

I'm rendering lots of 4K animations which takes several days, and CPU temp never rises above max. 61-62°C at about 22°C room temp.

Considering it's a ~3000$ machine I'm super impressed, especially compared to the Dual Xeon 6148 build for 3x the price tag.

See the attached screenshot for my temperatures. It's just 15 minutes, but the temperature doesn't raise much more, even after hours. Main reason for using air cooling instead of liquid cooling was reliability and safety.

I posted too soon, I now see what your using to cool the system, what about db levels?

Last windows update optimizes the scheduler and brings topology awareness to all AMD CPUs based on Zen to Zen2.

=> Would be very interesting how this helps render-speed when using threadripper (especially in interieur mode) :-D

Bathroom Scene (on TR 2990 WX):
Nov 2018 - 27 FPS
Jun 2019 - 34 FPS (updated Win10)

Hope that helps

Many thanks for testing!

simply wow.

but maybe also newer KS version (8.1->8.2) may also ad a part of this  positive progress..
Or do you use still the same version?

I'm on the latest version. Maybe it ads to the speed too. Who knows - ask the devs ;)

Attached is my benchmark with the Threadripper 2990wx on the latest version of Windows 10.  Getting a solid 525 FPS. 

Specs: 

• AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 32-Core 3.00 Ghz
• ASRock X399 Phantom Gaming 6
• NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080
• 64GB RAM
• NVMe M.2 SSD

I tested Bitsum's Coreprio utility, and with Dynamic Local Mode on I was getting 460 FPS, with NUMA Disassociator I was getting 520 FPS, and with Dynamic Local Mode and NUMA Disassocator about 460 FPS.  I'll stick with AMD's built-in Dynamic Local Mode.
