The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X processor is designed to provide indisputable multi-processing
8 cores provide an astonishing 16 threads of simultaneous multi-processing power, while 20MB of combined cache and vast I/O from the enthusiast-grade AMD X399 platform stand ready to feed the beast.
In 2017, AMD disrupted the processor market with Ryzen™ desktop processors, delivering incredible multi-threaded performance to consumers. But in many ways, platforms are just as important as the processors that sit on them. If you want to make a real difference in the way people experience PC performance, you need to continuously push to open other bottlenecks like memory, I/O, and storage. That’s why we provided a free NVMe RAID upgrade to the X399 (Threadripper) platform in October of the same year, enabling some of the most bandwidth ever seen on a consumer desktop platform.
While it’s great to push the limits of what’s possible for enthusiasts, the average user isn’t going to invest a large amount of money in expensive, high-capacity NVMe drives. So we looked for a way improve storage performance for everyone with a Ryzen desktop processor. We started with a list of goals, like improving storage performance and lowering loading times. Because AMD believes in open hardware standards, it prefers to work with off-the-shelf, non-proprietary NVMe, SSD, and hard disk drives. Finally, it must be convenient for users any superior storage acceleration solution needs to be easy to set up, and simple to use.
To achieve these goals, AMD partnered with Enmotus, a company that develops high-end server-class storage solutions designed to optimize both performance and capacity in the data center. We worked together to tailor Enmotus’ FuzeDrive software for use with AMD Ryzen desktop processors in the consumer desktop PC space, for systems using the AMD B350 and X370 chipsets (Socket AM4* Ryzen™ 7, 5, and 3*) and the X399 chipset.
First, the FuzeDrive software analyzes all of the storage hardware available on your system, from fastest to slowest: from DDR4 RAM, to 3D Xpoint NVMe drives, standard NVMe drives, SSD drives, and mechanical hard disks. During the setup process, it combines these disks into what your system sees as a single, larger disk. Unlike caching schemes, FuzeDrive lets you use both the SSD and the HDD capacity together as one large boot drive. For example, you can now combine a 128GB SSD and 2TB hard drive into a large bootable 2.1TB high performance FuzeDrive.
Once installed, FuzeDrive intelligently and continuously analyzes your system, activating an ongoing process to make it as fast and responsive as possible. For instance, your Windows operating system boot files are moved to the fastest non-volatile storage to accelerate boot times. And as you use your PC from day to day, FuzeDrive notices what applications you run and automatically prioritizes the applications and data you use the most, so it’s accessed as quickly as possible from the fastest storage tier available. That means faster boot times, faster application and game load times, and a more responsive system in your AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7 1900X.
