AMD's new super CPU can run Crysis-no graphics card required

Last week, AMD introduced the latest Big Daddy CPU: the 64-core Threadripper 3990X. This thing is so powerful that it can run Crysis-no GPU required.

Before we dive into this story, it's worth pointing out that the Threadripper 3900X is some serious hardcore suite. It is not designed for video games. In fact, this is a type of CPU that will be used for a large number of difficult tasks in the enterprise and in the enterprise. Reviews collected by PCWorld often indicate that it is perfect for those tasks. Its price is almost $ 4,000.

However, this does not mean that it is not interesting to see what it can do in the video game world, and this is precisely the technology of YouTuber Linus Tech Tips, which completes the classic PC benchmark task: running Crysis.

The fact that this CPU can run Crysis is shocking. This is not the job of an integrated GPU (iGPU), but Crysis, which runs entirely in the Threadripper 3990X software. The calculations and work performed by the CPU core are the same as those typically performed by a GPU. Even on such an expensive and powerful GPU, it's impressive-even if the game is full of warnings, it sounds when loading new geometry.

We will not review the Threadripper 3990X because it is not within our purview and we don't think any of you would be willing to spend $ 4,000 on a CPU that is not designed for gaming – but if you want to know what we use CPU and GPU, to recommend PC games, check out the VG247 gear list.
