With Prime Day surfaces another great offer for PC builders and enthusiasts, as the Threadripper 2950X is on sale for a whopping $250 off on Amazon and Newegg. The Threadripper series is meant for those looking for a professional part, that can not only stream content, render video, and output media, but also game.
The 2950X packs 16 cores and 32 threads, along with 32MB of L3 cache, quad-channel memory support up to 2,933 MHz, a TDP of 180W, and more importantly, 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes meaning you can run as many PCIe devices as your heart desires.
The 2950X earns a score of 3500 in CineBench R15 out of the box, beating the i9-7980XE (which costs over three times as much). It scores 179 points in single-core tests. As of right now, if you need a processor for rendering and other workstation purposes, this is by far the best value you can get.
