AMD Threadripper Official Launch Date With Three Variants Confirmed
After months of waiting finally, there are more details revealed officially on AMD's top of the line Threadripper CPUs. This CPU was unveiled at Computex event this year. Many were speculating about the company's plan, however, this weekend, AMD itself finally released significant details about the Threadripper and its plans for the platform long-term.
The heavy handed AMD Threadripper processor series will now reportedly have a third variant called the AMD 1900X. The 1900X is an 8-core, 16 thread processor which unlike the Ryzen 7 will support quad-channel memory and support 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes. THe AMD 1900X is confirmed to be priced at $549 at launch. However, the another variant is said to be the 12-core AMD 1920X and the 16-core AMD 1950X, which will retail for $799 and $999 respectively. AMD also revealed various X399 motherboards by its partners and new cooling solutions that are required to run the Threadripper processors.
AMD will take on Intel's Core i9 HEDT CPUs, with the Threadripper range of processors. The top of the line TR 1950X is going to compete with the new Core i9-7900X. Intel did announce a more processor rich Core i9 -7980XE with 18-core and 34 threads, but that processor is almost twice expensive as compared to the AMD flagship. This means customers would be paying at least $400 less for the 12-core Threadripper 1920X processor, which is conveniently priced at $799, the Digit reported.
Additionally, AMD has revealed that all three Threadripper processors will have XFR boost of +200MHz that will be taking the boost frequency to 4.2GHz, as reported by Eurogamer. The Threadripper CPU will be the cost effective CPU by AMD.
AMD, with Threadripper, looks to be trying hard to take on Intel. According to the AMD, Threadripper two CPUs will launch on August 10, however, the third variant will make its debut on August 31.
