Build Description

This is the full components list for the PC Wendell assembled in our Sharonville, Ohio store for his video about the new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990x processor. In his video, Wendell was tasked with assembling the following components to create an extremely powerful $10,000 workstation PC.

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990x just launched today on February 7, 2020. This processor has 64 cores, 128 threads, and 256mb cache. This processor will turn the visual effects industry on its head, but will also be hugely beneficial for certain programmers. In the future, Wendell would recommend water cooling the GPUs, but even still this machine is like nothing else on the market.
