AMD Threadripper Dynamic Local Mode
You must be wondering what AMD Threadripper Dynamic Local Mode feature is. AMD says that this new feature “is a new piece of software that automatically migrates the system’s most demanding application threads onto the Threadripper 2990WX and 2970WX CPU cores with local memory access. In other words: the apps that prefer local DRAM access will automatically receive it, and apps that scale to many cores will be free to do so.”
AMD tested a few games as well as some other applications to show the kind of performance gains you can get from this new feature. You can check out the benchmarks concerning the AMD Threadripper Dynamic Local Mode feature below:
All games were tested using the Ultra preset and all games were played in DX11 with the exception of Battlefield that was using DX12 instead. With Dynamic Local Mode on, AMD Threadripper CPUs performed 10% better in Far Cry 5. 12% better in PUBG. 47% better in Battlefield 1. 18% better in Alien Isolation. 15% better in Unreal Engine Compile Time. 21% better in Rodinia HPC Benchmark.
The following system configuration was used for these tests:
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX
- 4x8GB DDR4-3200
- GeForce GTX 1080 (driver 399.24)
- Samsung 850 Pro SSD
- Windows 10 Pro x64
This new feature will be available starting October 29th and will be automatically configured on your system if you are using the AMD Threadripper 2990WX or 2970WX processor. It will be part of the latest version of AMD Ryzen Master. For more information regarding the new feature and AMD Threadripper stay tuned.
