We created a new standard for the HEDT market when we launched our first Ryzen Threadripper processors a year ago, delivering a ground-breaking level of computing power for the world’s most demanding PC users. Our goal with 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors was to push the performance boundaries even further and continue innovating at the bleeding edge. Beginning on August 13, creators, enthusiasts, and gamers everywhere will get to experience the benefits of these new products.
Ron Fischer, Director of Information Technology, Fox VFX Lab said
At Fox VFX Lab we use AMD technology extensively. Our workstations are custom built, based on water-cooled Ryzen Threadripper processors. Unreal engine artists easily peg every core at 100% during lightmass calculations. We work in real-time at the front of the production pipeline, and things move very quickly here, at the speed of imagination. AMD helps keep the pace as we define the future of virtual filmmaking.
Jeremy Smith, CTO at Jellyfish Pictures said
From film, TV, animation and motion graphics to art design & visual development, Jellyfish Pictures’ focus is delivering uncompromised creative artwork to the world. Our goal is to empower creative professionals to freely imagine, design, build and create without limitations, and with AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper we know we are offering unrivaled high-performance computing technology.
