More impressive is the power consumption, 1950X mining the entire system consumes only 246W, coupled with GTX 1080 but 355W after the video card, whichThe processor itself has not exceeded 160W.
To know that in the simple copy machine, the power consumption of the 1950X can reach about 350W, 200W of power consumption means thatSave $ 0.7 per day on electricity bills.

As for why ThreadRipper mining performance, speculation is likely to be 32MB super large capacity L3 cache to play a role.
In addition, as 16 core 32 threads are rich in resources, full mining at the same time, watching a 4K movie is still very smooth.
