What’s the big deal?
If you’re not keeping up on CES 2020, you’re missing out on a whole lot of cool stuff. LG is rolling out TVs from the ceiling, Samsung is using microLEDs and AI to create mind blowing picture and massive 292 inch TVs. Every year this is the most exciting time for a tech enthusiast. Here’s some of the things I’m most excited about. I will add more as the week goes on.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
AMD has been disrupting the processor market over the last couple years, with increasingly more impressive hardware seeming to release constantly. They dropped a bomb with the 7nm process, then later brought the 3950x to the table – a 16 core monster. That’s not even getting into high end desktop yet for AMD!
AMD redefined high end desktop today, with a 64 core 128 thread monster of a Threadripper CPU. The 3990x has been rumored to be coming ever since the 2990wx came out. I personally am rocking a 2990wx, but I’m not sure I can fork over the $3,990 for this thing. I’m not sure I can put all that power to use as much as I’d need to make it worth it either. That’s one ass kicking machine though! I max out my 32 cores quite often, I wonder what the same tasks would be like on the 3990x. Wow!
I have high hopes for AMD in the future, hopefully Windows can keep up with the monsters that AMD keeps throwing at them.
