Absolutely!
I'm already looking forward for when my hoster offers VPS with the new AMD Epyc "Rome".
Not that my current one isn't fast enough but paying for an Intel VPS doesn't feel good.

Without AMD we would still be on 4c/8t on mainstream CPUs...

True, but while AMD was trying to bankrupt itself with Bulldozer, Intel gave us 8 generations of real CPU's.  You could say AMD were the ones who (indirectly) allowed Intel to stagnate.

 

I am definitely awaiting the next Threadrippers though =).  My old Xeon is getting crusty...

Just upgraded to the 3700x, so happy to have moved on from QSV transcodes to straight CPU set at slow with an 18 CRF. It just tears through it when remote users start something up...

My first gen Threadripper still kicks every GPU's ass.

I seriously considered one after seeing a few of your posts but ultimately went lower TDP etc. I don't have enough transcoding going on anyway!

what are the 2700's like? they are down to £100-£130 now? seems a cheap price for the potential.

Probably does ok. My first gen Threadripper, playing a 4k 10bit SDR movie with transcode settings at 1080 6Mb/s, medium 20, transcodes at 116fps.

@Doofus

 

Looks like the Ryzen 3950X is going to pack some serious power.  How do you think it will compare to the first and second gen TR?

I would think it's probably on par with them.

Comparing 16c vs. 16c I would expect it to be quite a bit faster. It has more MHz and avx2 which is quite important to speed up transcodes.

Here you go. Looks to be a big improvement over the TR that I have.

Better than gen 2 TR, also

I'm giving it some thought... but not much in the way of AM4 server motherboards.

I think I'll be building one of these next year.

Ouch.

 

That hurts the pocketbook.

Not too bad. With CPU, probably around $1700

A little rich for me, but I may consider a 3900x build instead of TR.

Although I also distinctly remember this:

Anyone thinking of getting a Threadripper.....DON'T! It's an absolute nightmare! So many problems. It's a steady stream of problems.


But that was because you were on the cutting edge.

I only use a CPU since I'm using Linux/Docker. I've considered adding hardware, but I'd rather not bother if I can do it all with CPU. I have no 4K media yet, but I'm guessing I will soon now that I finally have a 4K set.

Seems that these new Ryzen 9 could handle 4K transcodes? How much have you really pushed it? I'd probably only ever have 1 or 2 transcodes at a time.

Lol... That was just because I was using an older version of Windows. Once I used a recent version, it was just fine. Lesson learned, right? :) But I like to test new stuff. If something doesn't work, it's very frustrating, but also enjoyable. I may be a bit of a masochist :)
