    Threadripper 1950x slow

    zizomass

      Hello

       

       

      I have a 1950x threadripper, but it's basically impossible to use it in create mode. Even without any open program, windows is constantly slow, drop frames or even freeze the system. Forcing me to turn on compatibility mode, which basically shuts off half the processors.

      I have an Asus x399-A. A H100i v2 liquid cooler. 32gb RAM, a VEGA FE liquid and two M.2 corsair MP500, even so the performance of my computer in the creation mode is ridiculous.

      Would anyone have any idea why my processor is performing so low?

      Thank you

          Hmmm....doesn't seem to be slow for anyone else...;)  What is "creation mode," btw?...lol...;)  Never heard of it...;)

            zizomass, I have a 1950X and it is not slow, in my opinion, but I, like waltc, do not know what creation mode is.  Please run some standard benchmark, such as PassMark, and post the results for us to compare.  What OS are you running and where did you get it?  Where did you get your drivers?  Please tell us more about your system - memory details, video card, etc.  Thanks and enjoy, John.

                    Run Memtest86 to rule out a faulty RAM module and/or RAM controller, and Prime95 SmallFFT to rule out a faulty processor. If it works perfectly with half the cores disabled I'd bet it's a faulty processor, and you'll get an error on one of those.

                      zizomass, thanks for the additional information.  I think black_zion has Game and Creator modes confused.  Game mode runs one chip (8 cores) and Creator runs both (16 cores).  I do not use Ryzen Master nor OC.  So here is what I suggest:  open your BIOS/UEFI and hit F9 (Default) and F10 (Save and boot).  Then run PassMark (free trial) and post the results here.  Please look at your Taskmanger-Performance-Memory and make sure W10 is seeing all 32 GB of memory.  Use a command prompt to run winver and post what patch level you are running on 16299 (I'm on 431).  Open Settings: WinKey-i - Apps - AMD Software - Modify.  After a few seconds, you should get a screen like this:

                      AMDsft.jpg

                      Please post it here.  Just close the dialog.  What is making you think your system is slow?  black_zion's other ideas are good.  There is a W10 memory tester I have used.  It probably does not do as well as Memtest86 but is easier to use: Windows Key + R, type “mdsched.exe”, then reboot.  Please let us know what you learn.  Thanks and enjoy, John.

                       

                      EDIT: The F9 and F10 keys are from my ASRock MB.  Please use the appropriate keys for your board.

                          Hi there guys

                           

                          I did some tests on my computer. And apparently all the memories and cores of the processor are working perfectly.

                           

                          But I seem to be able to solve the problem. I downloaded Avast to make sure it was not a virus that was damaging my computer. And after some scans, the program informed me that it had about 150 corrupted windows registry files.

                          I asked the program to carry out the repairs. And now my computer went back to working as usual.

                          I honestly can not understand how this may have affected my performance, primarily because it only affects the performance of the computer with the 16 cores connected. But the problem seems to have been solved for now.

                          Many thanks, guys.
