AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and Threadripper 1920X Processor Review

Power Consumption

No review is complete without taking a look at power and we were really curious of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X would do since they have a 180W TDP.

For starters both the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X  platform had nearly identical power consumption. Both used around 90 Watts at idle and that is impressive as includes the ASUS X399 motherboard,  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 FE video card, SSD and the CPU liquid cooler. Both processors topped out at 255W in Handbrake and 330W when playing Thief at 1080P. This processor uses more than most, but that is expected with this many cores!

    Well, what I don’t understand is why your CPU diode is much lower temperature than CPU. For me it’s the total opposite and I thought by design it was normal for CPU diode to report higher temperatures than CPU, anything I’m missing here?
