Two months after its announcement last May,AMD finally returned to follow up by presenting a number of details that must be related to the existence of high-end multi-core processor Threadripper new flagship to the next audience.
As for newcomers to the Threadripper lineup,there are reportedly two high-end CPU models ready for sale in early August, namely: Ryzen Threadripper 1920X CPU for $ 799,with 12 cores / 24 threads and 3.5GHz base speed that can be upgraded to 4.0GHz, while the other, Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU for $ 999, will offer the previously-promised advantages of 16 cores / 32 threads with a base clock of 3.4GHz that can be upgraded to 4.0GHz.And as with any AMD Ryzen processor in general, both Threadripper CPU models will also come with an unlocked system that can be empowered to overclock as desired.
The presence of duo high-end CPU models made by AMD is practically going to be a major competitor for the latest high-end Core i9 processor made by Intel that exist today. Although both have 12 cores / 24 threads, the price of AMD Threadripper 1920X CPU is said to be cheaper about $ 400 from Intel Core i9-7920X CPU market price of $ 1,199. Similarly, the AMD Threadripper 1950X CPU, although equally equipped with 16 cores /32 threads but supposedly cheaper about $ 700 compared to Intel Core i9-7960X is marketed today for $ 1,699.Especially with the price of $ 1,999 for the latest Intel Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition processor with 18 cores / 36 threads, you can bring home two models of high-end chipset AMD Threadripper the best.
Not only the high-end segment, AMD has also announced some new details on Ryzen 3 chips with its newest upcoming budget, which is intended to fill the low end market in the same place as the existing Intel Core i3 chips.As the strongest in its class, the Ryzen 3 1300X CPU is clocked at 3.5GHz (which can be upgraded to 3.7GHz), while the Ryzen 3 1200 is slightly slower at 3.1GHz basic speed (with boost up to 3.4GHz).The first two models of Ryzen 3 low-end CPUs are scheduled to be available soon on July 27, although no price information has been released so far.
