Slimbook always chooses the best hardware for your teams, with the best brands and the best performance on the market. Linux does what it lacks to make this hardware work in the most efficient way and get the most out of it. A set that makes the computers of this Valencian firm work like the mechanics of a Swiss watch.
Ya we told you in the past about the fantastic after-dinner Slimbook KYMERA. Equipment you can choose from with your favorite distro pre-installed, and that are priced for the exceptional hardware they include. You will also remember that, for the first time in 15 years, Linus Torvalds has changed his PC to an AMD-based one with which it compiles up to 3 times faster ...
Specifically, the kernel guru owns one based on AMD Threadripper 3970X. A chip that costs thousands of euros. On the other hand, there is another option somewhat cheaper with a performance that is not far from this. It's about the chip AMD Ryzen 9 3900X like the one you can equip on your Slimbook KYMERA Ventus. Therefore, for much less euros you can have extreme power for your desktop PC.

Differences: AMD Ryzen 9 3900x from the Slimbook vs AMD Threadripper 3970X from Linus Torvalds
Both chips belong to the higher end from AMD, to those intended for enthusiasts or HEDT (High-end Desktop). Inside are cores based on the powerful Zen 2 microarchitecture, which are giving such good results and doing so much damage to the waterline of Intel's flagships.

Conclusion, the AMD Ryzen 9 of the Slimbook is not only cheaper and has a lower consumption, it is also better for applications such as video games, which need a higher clock and do not take advantage of the parallelism of more cores ...
Ok ... you are not convinced and you want the same as Torvalds?
Well, Slimbook also allows you to have exactly the same as Linus Torvalds on his computer, that is, even if he does not put it on his website, you can ask him through the contact of the Spanish company to mount an AMD Threadripper 3970X in your future Kymera Ventus. Also, they have some other 3000-Series Threadripper. You will have no complaint !!!
