Windows 10 Pro has an error with the AMD Threadripper 3990X CPU

1 min read

The Threadripper 3990X processor introduced by AMD has already been on the market, and some users have already purchased this processor for use.

A little embarrassing is that the Threadripper 3990X processor has 64 cores and 128 threads, but after installation, the user finds that the Windows 10 system recognizes them as two 64-thread processors.

Although Microsoft has stated that Windows 10 system supports 128 threads, it seems that the actual situation is that such high-performance processors are not recognized properly.

In the operating system, Microsoft will make different calling and optimization strategies for different specifications of the processor. If it is incorrectly identified, it may affect the performance of the processor. Windows 10 system recognizes the AMD Threadripper 3990X CPU as a dual 64-thread instead of a single 128-thread.

After users discovered that Windows 10 does not actually support 128 threads, Microsoft has deployed an emergency update to fix the system’s failure to correctly identify processor issues.

Microsoft has not issued a public statement on the matter so we don’t know where the problem lies, but users can install the latest cumulative update to solve the problem.

If the user wants to know if his processor is recognized by the system normally, just open the task manager and go to the performance processor to see the information.
