Windows 10 Pro Can’t Handle the 128-Thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X
AMD recently released its mighty Threadripper 3990X, a 128-thread CPU with a single-core boost clock of 4.3 GHz. As we reported earlier, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X "makes full use of the 7nm Zen 2 architecture," featuring 64 cores and 128 threads. Our hardware peeps called the core and the thread count "astonishing" and "unlike anything that we have seen before on the HEDT platform."
But this never before seen wonder also means it needs some equally capable software to handle it. Apparently, Windows 10 Pro seems to be unable to deal with the chip's 128 cores. Windows 10 Home edition officially can't handle more than 64, but Pro should technically be able to handle the latest chip.
