After a total of 15 years using Intel on your PC, Linus Torvalds, the creator of the kernel Linux, he updated his PC with a AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X. This is what he wrote about it in a post on the occasion of the launch of Linux 5.7 rc7:

“In fact, what excites me most about this week is the fact that I updated my main machine, and for the first time in fifteen years, not based on Intel. I still don't change to ARM, but now I enjoy a AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X. My 'allmodconfig' test settings are three times faster than they were. "

Torvalds did not disclose more details about its new configuration, But the 3970X is undoubtedly a big heart for your system. Counting on 32 cores and 64 threads with 3.7 GHz base frequency and a boost of up to 4.5GHz, manufactured under the process 7nm FinFET TSMC, this Threadripper undoubtedly has all the necessary power for any load you want to run.

Whatever PC Torvalds has now, has more cores than Intel currently offers on any of its CPUs designed for desktop PCs. AMD, meanwhile, will be happy to hear that a high-profile figure adopted their hardware to work on the Linux kernel.

What do you think of this? Would you like to have a PC like Linus Torvalds?
