I can but more concerning is the NUMA mode that can't go away! On the most up to date Win10 Enterprise it shows single socket and L3 cache properly. I put 2019 Server Datacenter on another drive and ran updates until it says it's up to date and that actually shows it as a dual socket system!

Here is the selection from the task manager



There is a 0 option in the BIOS which should disable NUMA but it doesn't change this behavior. Under 'set affinity' options there are two processing groups of 64 cores and by default it only shows it using one group. The other group is assignable but affinity isn't always settable by the user - even admin.

I did run some blender files on the 10 Enterprise install and those render times did scale quite nicely. Socket power use over 700W according to HWinfo with average core close to 4.1GHz. Temp in the 50s. Using a Heatkiller IV solid copper block that's piped into a chilled water loop maintained at 18°C. That tap is off a system with about 30 tons capacity so there's room for some more o/c. I'd like to see what 4.4GHz across all cores is capable of! ;)

I do believe this a windows problem and not a bios setting based on the 3990x review here on anandtech.
Handbrake is available on linux if you want to see how well that 3990 scales.

Handbrake is available on linux if you want to see how well that 3990 scales.
I'm familiar with Linux on controllers, servers, etc. (CLI only)
I'm guessing I'd need to use a GUI based distro.
I am open to any suggestions on distros to try. Got plenty of bandwidth and space to burn! :)

If you're comfortable with CLI, you might be able to get away without a gui:

Now, I am not great at it so cant say it will work 100%, but it does seem like its possible.

As for using a GUI linux, I'm on Linux Lite, which is based on ubuntu 18.04 LTS/Debian. Its got a windows pre win8 style start/feel, but I like it since its a fairly lean install. I'm sure theres a gui based version of whatever command line you are comfortable with.

Oddly it seems that Intel's Clear Linux might be the fastest distro to try out (comparison to other distros):

And with 3990x in particular:

Ok up and running on Intel(r) Clear Linux Project.

Here's what I found:

encoded 1806 frames in 111.36s (16.22 fps), 11820.04 kb/s, Avg QP:29.09

[01:24:24] CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X 64-Core Processor
[01:24:24] - logical processor count: 64

Shouldn't logical processor count show 128?

As you can see, it's considerable worse than Win10! :(

Didn't expect it to only see 1/2 your threads on linux, though after some reading it seems the x265 encoder is limited to 64 threads unless told otherwise:
https://x265.readthedocs.io/en/default/cli.html (check out the pools info section)

Also, from the log file :x265 [info]: Coding QT: max CU size, min CU size : 64 / 8

You can possibly add options for more threads in the video tab of handbrake, in the more settings window.
pools=n:frame-threads=n

I was not able to get it to use less than 12 threads on my 3600, but since I dont have 64 cores I cant figure out if its possible to get it to use more.
