WHAT’S THE ADVANTAGES OF MSI TRX40 MOTHERBOARDS?
It is evident that this time, AMD makes great efforts to beef up its HEDT series. The 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors are built with 7nm structure and support PCIe 4.0 technology. The maximum memory capacity also upgrades to 256GB. All these enhancement offers creators and professionals a better opportunities to level up their systems. Below charts from MSI internal test indicates that the new 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 3970X processor with MSI Creator TRX40 motherboard makes much progress in all aspects. Cinebench R20 scores 17362cb, which is top-tier in multi-core performance.
The 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 3970X is also far ahead in blender benchmark including BMW 2.7 and V-Ray benchmark.
For Adobe software, Photoshop CC and Premier Pro CC benchmark showcase its capabilities on both graphic design and video editing performance.
The 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 3970X processor has been proved to provide incredible enhancement for creator-related benchmark. If we take the CPU overall benchmark into consideration, The 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 3970X still achieves the leading position in the HEDT market.
HOW ABOUT MSI TRX40 MOTHERBOARDS?
✔ Thermal Improvement: All Aluminum, Fin Array, Frozr Heatsink
Compared to X399 motherboards, the new MSI TRX40 motherboards are built with enhanced thermal solution for the most high-end AMD processors. All aluminum design including larger heatsinks for the I/O cover to increase thermal surface. Besides, the extended heat-pipe and a stacked fin array for Creator TRX40 also offers better heat dissipation effect with steady aircurrent and enlarge the radiating area. Frozr Heatsink Design includes a patented fan with double ball bearings for better reliability to run over 50000 hours. The combined Propeller Blade Technology and Zero Frozr Technology not only generate more airflow with lower noise, but also adjust fan speed automatically according to personal preference. All the enhanced thermal design is proved to decrease the temperature of both PWM and chipset by about 30 degrees, as shown below.
In terms of M.2 devices and the thermal solution, Creator TRX40 motherboard puts one of a M.2 slots on the right side of the motherboard rather than between PCIe slots. This design averts heat accumulation from both PCIe and M.2 slots. All of three M.2 slots are also covered with double side M.2 Shield Frozr to prevent thermal issues.
✔ Aggressive VRM Design: Ready for Next-Gen Processors
Besides thermal improvement, the VRM design is taken into strong consideration given that the 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors are more powerful than ever before. For Creator TRX40 motherboard, the 16x 70A digital power phases plus 3x SOC power phases ensure precise and undistorted power delivery to the processor and high load current steadiness. To deliver stable power supply, all three TRX40 motherboards are equipped with double 8-pin power connectors. Combining with MSI exclusive Core Boost technology, the optimized circuit design for high quality components also guarantees more accurate current. The aggressive VRM design of MSI TRX40 motherboards is not only prepared the 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors but also ready for the next generation Ryzen processors.
✔ Lightning 20G – USB 3.2 Gen2x2
For creators, various devices need to connect to the system via USB ports. If the motherboards are equipped with as many USB ports as possible or faster solution, the working efficiency and working time can be improved. MSI TRX40 motherboards feature a great number of USB ports and the latest USB standard – USB 3.2 Gen 2×2, which gives creators the fastest 20GB/s USB speeds. MSI internal test shows that the actual speed can reach to nearly 20GB/s, which is close to the theoretical value of USB 3.2 Gen 2×2.
WHAT’S DIFFERENCE AMONG CREATOR TRX40, TRX40 PRO 10G AND TRX40 PRO?
For various creators, the table shows the main difference among three new MSI TRX40 motherboards, as below;
RECOMMENDATION: HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR TRX40 MOTHERBOARD?
Among three MSI TRX40 motherboards, Creator TRX40 is well-prepared for heavy-loading operation processes for designers and content creators. For instance, those who are cinematographers, music producers, animators, large files take a lot of time to deal with. These types of workloads such as 4K video editing, music arrangement, 3D animation indeed need Creator TRX40 motherboards to meet all the requirements with excellent specification and exclusive features.
With regard to TRX40 PRO 10G and TRX40 PRO WIFI, MSI provides different products according to different needs. TRX40 PRO 10G is equipped with an ultra-speed 10G Super LAN Card, which is perfect for a small workstation to have high-speed intranet connection. It offers faster internal file transfer speed to exchange large file with up to 10GB/s speed. On the other hand, TRX40 PRO WIFI is built with an onboard Wi-Fi 6 AX solution. Wi-Fi 6, the latest wireless network connection, supports up to 3x bandwidth and 4x network capacity with two-way MU-MIMO technology for better efficiency. Users who care more about the wireless connection quality, TRX40 PRO WIFI provides the best solution.
