Good Gaming PC – AMD THREADRIPPER

The AMD THEADRIPPER 1950X is just about to release in New Zealand \o/ We’ve already begun testing these extremely high-end CPU options with our own custom PC builds here at GGPC NZ and things are looking pretty good!

Wanting to keep everything AMD we kitted out our first test system with twin Sapphire Nitro RX 580 Graphics Cards and begun making our way through the usual stuff like Cinebenchmarks to quickly compare with to others around the world before jumping into some games to really have some fun checking things out \o/ These new ThreadRipper CPU options are a part of the Ryzen family but both the 1920X and 1950X do require a special motherboard socket to use, you find these on new motherboards with TR4 and X399 in the name, like the AORUS GA-X399 Gaming 7 🙂 It’s not just a socket change up either, specific details around support for quad channel RAM configurations, a cache size increase and expanded PCIe support have been added to take full advantage of these mighty 16 core processors, M.2 ultra fast storage and all the supporting hardware these highest end PC will undoubtedly be using in the future.

One thing popped up as each of us started builds, we all thought to ourselves… this CPU is massive, where should I put the thermal paste? Thankfully, the CPU Cooler options that we’re attaching on top still have the same surface area as before so just a blob in the middle like normal worked for us, it’s going to interesting to see if ThreadRipper specific cooling options emerge after release though 🙂

Because Nvidia ShadowPlay is excellent for capturing 60FPS 4K gameplay for the ThreadRipper FPS tests we’ll be using our Aorus GTX1080 Ti config, with 16GB of G.Skill 2400Hz DDR4 and a Samsung EVO 245GB SSD for storage.

Keep your eyes on the GGPC YouTube channel for the latest!

PREPARE FOR BATTLE – For Honor + Ghost Recon Wildlands YOU CHOOSE GTX BONUS!

GGPC Wildlands For Honor Nvidia GTX 1060 1070 1080 ti Free Game You Choose Bonus

UPDATE: This promotion has now ended, you have until the 30th Jun to redeem your codes.

 

Play a battle-hardened warrior in For Honor or go behind enemy lines to take down the cartel in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. For a limited time, claim your choice of these Ubisoft games as a bonus when you gear up with selected GTX 1070, GTX 1080, GTX 1080Ti graphics cards or Gaming PCs and Gaming Laptops featuring these beasts!

As usual the hardest part is going to be deciding which game to choose, so let’s take a closer look at both options.

First up – Ghost Recon: Wildlands!

Bolivia, a few years from now. The country has become the largest cocaine producer in the world. The Santa Blanca drug cartel has turned the country into a narco-state, leading to lawlessness, injustice, and violence. The Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, is sent behind enemy lines to wreak havoc and takedown the cartel.

This one enjoyed the largest turnout during the Ubisoft open beta phase and is best played with a group of friends, if you find yourself in solo queue being a helicopter pilot or driver for a bunch of randoms is still pretty darn fun as well!

Next up – For Honor!

This new hack’n’slash capture’n’hold game proved itself early on with some very beautiful graphics and a slick melee battle system that had us ramming our way through the ranks to take on opposing warriors in fierce hand to hand (or blade to blade) combat.

Many, many hours have been spent in For Honor at GGPC NZ, the matches often become fantastically close battles with the skill based player matching systems working very well indeed – this one is truly exceptional if you play often, you’ll start to recognise opponents from previous encounters in game and the focus shifts from an all out battle to hunting each other down relentlessly with some face-offs lasting the entire round.

This is a register to redeem promotion, once you’ve got your awesome new hardware simply visit the registration sites as below depending on your chosen flavour, enter the details as prompted and you’ll get a game code via email 🙂
