Of course, this is the newest Ryzen Threadripper 3990X.
Once upon a time, by the standards of the computer market, home PCs dispensed with video cards capable of processing three-dimensional images. These times are long gone, and modern graphics accelerators are striking in their performance and complexity.
Now the idea of making the game work exclusively on the CPU seems silly. But a few days ago, the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X entered the market, and that all changed.
The enthusiasts of the Linus Tech Tips channel decided to check whether such a monstrous processor is able to cope with the game without any GPU. And not just a game, but with the cult Crysis, which at one time knelt all existing video cards.
As it turned out, even such a difficult task in the teeth for a monster AMD. Of course, with a number of reservations.
As you can see (the test in Crysis starts at 9:12), the game is clearly launched in some low resolution with minimal graphics quality and it slows down a lot. But it works.
At the same time, you can also see that all 128 threads are loaded to a minimum degree, although a relatively large load accounts for 10 of them at best. Simply put, if it were possible to optimize the software in such a way that it used all the processor cores, the game would probably work just fine, and with good graphics settings. But even such an achievement is extremely impressive.
