General info

The base and maximum clock speed of the CPU AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX, number of processing cores and threads.

CPU Cores and Base Frequency

The general performance of a CPU can easily be determined based on the number of its cores and the thread count, as well as the base frequency and Turbo frequency. The more GHz and cores a CPU has, the better. Please note that high technical specs require using a powerful cooling system and a quality chipset (check VRM on the motherboard).

Frequency: 3.90 GHz   CPU Cores: 16
Turbo (1 Core): 4.30 GHz   CPU Threads: 32
