AMD says that Windows 10 Pro and Linux are great for Threadripper 3990X

AMD & # 39; s Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is a beast. It is one of the most powerful CPU & # 39; s ever created and it can never reach as many CPU & # 39; s as the ability to run Crysis without a special GPU. So far, however, the logic dictated that Windows 10 Pro simply wasn't enough for AMD & # 39; s powerful CPU, and Linux was off the cards if you wanted to get the most out of AMD & # 39; s sample CPU.

Turns out this is not true, and AMD has sent an official response to the problem, as quoted from WCCF Tech:

We wanted to make it clear that AMD officially recommends Windows 10 Professional or Linux for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. Higher editions / versions of Windows 10 do not give the processor additional performance or compatibility benefits.

We understand that this suggestion has been made in some articles and our team is currently testing it further, but this is the official recommendation.

So although the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X does not correctly display all 128 threads for its 64 cores in Windows 10 Pro task manager, CPU performance is not affected at all. That means that for a Windows 10 Pro for workstations or a Windows 10 Enterprise license, you don't really have to spend more to get the most out of your expensive new CPU. For $ 3,990 for the processor itself, that's a very good thing.

Linux users will also be pleased to note that their chosen operating system will not negatively affect the performance of the Threadripper 3990X.

To ensure that you can use the Threadripper 3990X without performance issues, ensure that you are using at least the Windows 10 Pro version 18362,592 or higher. You can do this by right clicking on your Start button and clicking runand type in winverand press OK. It looks like the image above.
