AMD Introduces Dynamic Local Mode for Threadripper: up to 47% Performance Gain

This, along with the new NVidia Driver ought to put the Threadripper on par with Intel for gaming. It would be nice if this could be implemented into the chipset rather than software.

AMD's new "Dynamic Local Mode" seeks to abolish that requirement by introducing a background process that continually monitors all running applications for their CPU usage and pushes the more busy ones onto the cores that have direct memory access, by adjusting their process affinity mask, which selects which processors the application is allowed to be scheduled on. Applications that require very little CPU are in turn pushed onto the cores with no memory access, because they are not so important for fast execution.
