Massive AMD Threadripper News: Three CPUs Including 8-Core With Prices Starting At Ju

AMD has announced final pricing and lineup of its entire new high-end desktop processor range - otherwise known as Ryzen Threadripper. The news comes from the official pre-launch event for Threadripper and its high-end graphics card, Vega, which was held in Los Angeles over the weekend. Three models are planned, with 8, 12 and 16 cores and prices will start at just $549 for the 8-c0re/16-thread model.

The flagship is the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, which will retail for $999, have 16 cores and 32 threads, plus base and turbo frequencies of 3.4GHz and 4GHz. Then there's the 12-core/24-thread 1920X, which has the same 4GHz turbo frequency but slightly higher 3.5GHz base frequency. It will cost $799 and both the 1950X and 1920X will be available from 10th August.

A surprise, though, came in the form of the 1900X, which is an 8-core/16-thread part that hasn't been listed in any of the leaked information I've seen so far. It will retail for just $549 - barely $100 more than the flagship mainstream desktop processors, the Ryxen 7 1800X.

The 1900X is clearly designed to lower the entry cost to the Threadripper/X399 platform, which will offer a massive 64 PCI-E lanes for multi-GPU, next-gen storage such as PCI-E SSDs and communication configurations, the latter including 10Gbps LAN.

While the performance of Threadripper isn't yet known, AMD does enjoy a significant lead in terms of the number of cores at certain price points. For example, the $999 Threadripper 1950X sports 16 cores, while the Core i9-7900X only has 10. This, AMD claims, allows it to outperform Intel in multithreaded applications such as Cinebench by up to 38%.
