Additonally, the other part of tweet says, ‘Threadripper and GTX 1080 Ti make a compelling pair’. This is clearly a marketing stunt as Threadripper and X399 motherboard architecture are very well suited for GTX Titan X or GTX 1080 Ti SLI configuration.
Nvidia clearly shares the idea of ultimate machine in the tweet, while praising both AMD and Nvidia GeForce.
In response to Nvidia GeForce tweet, AMD Ryzen posts a GIF of high five. This reciprocation is the finest at its best. Both of tech giants know that they can compete with a collaboration and creating a dream machine.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors are targeted for PC enthusiasts only, since its packs massive core count and even more number of threads, 16C/32T to be exact.
Comparatively, you will pay $700 more if you buy Intel Core i9-7960X than AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. This is a clear base line that AMD Ryzen stretched in competition with Intel in terms of hardware diversity and effective cheapness of CPUs.
What do you make of Nvidia GeForce move? Do you think a Ryzen Threadripper CPU and AMD Vega GPU be a better combination? or Nvidia GPU will perform better when combined with a Threadripper CPU? Let us know your thoughts in comments section below.
