AMD has announced a accessibility and pricing for a brawny fan Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, and during a other finish of a scale, wallet-friendly Ryzen 3 desktop processors – all of that will be out within a subsequent month.
Two Ryzen Threadripper models are going to be on shelves from early August, and in further to a previously announced 16-core (32-thread) monster, there will be a 12-core (24-thread) model, with pricing starting during $799 (around £615, AU$1,035) for a latter.
And a good news for bill CPU fans is that a initial span of Ryzen 3 processors will go on sale come Jul 27, only dual weeks from currently – nonetheless a accurate pricing hasn’t been reliable in this case.
The core specs of a new Threadripper chips are as follows:
- Ryzen Threadripper 1950X: 16-cores, 32-threads, 3.4/4.0GHz (base/boost clock), $999 (around £770, AU$1,295)
- Ryzen Threadripper 1920X: 12-cores, 24-threads, 3.5/4.0GHz (base/boost clock), $799 (around £615, AU$1,035)
And a Ryzen 3 chips are as follows:
- Ryzen 3 1300X: 4-cores, 4-threads, 3.5/3.7GHz (base/boost clock)
- Ryzen 3 1200: 4-cores, 4-threads, 3.1/3.4GHz (base/boost clock)
Threadripper runs on a X399 height and boasts support for quad-channel DDR4 memory, with 64 lanes of PCIe. As AMD demonstrates in a next launch video, a bottom 12-core indication beats out Intel’s Core i9-7900X (10-core CPU with Turbo to 4.3GHz) by a measure of only over 2,400 to 2,100 in Cinebench R15. (The 1950X managed only over 3,000).
Cores for regard during Intel
Intel’s i9-7900X is labelled during $999 (around £770, AU$1,295), a accurate same turn that AMD has pitched a flagship 1950X – a latter of that valid roughly 50% quicker in a above benchmark test.
In terms of a approach comparison to AMD’s Threadripper flagship, Intel’s 16-core offering, a i9-7960X, runs to no reduction than $1,699 (around £1,315, AU$2,200). So this opposition chip costs only underneath 60% of what Intel is asking.
AMD also remarkable that pre-orders for a Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition complement will kick-off from Jul 27.
