Speaking of the Threadripper 2990X, while AMD is yet to reveal it but, overclocker Der8auer has managed to simulate Threadripper 2990X using AMD EPYC 7601.
The Overclocker used the overclocked AMD EPYC 7601 to simulate the Threadripper 2990X’s performance.
While getting EPYC 7601 to simulate the performance of Threadripper 2990X wasn’t exactly smooth but the overclocker managed to do it.
However, the performance isn’t the representative of the real Threadripper 2990X due to memory restraints and the motherboards for AMD EPYC 7601 aren’t designed for overclocking.
