AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper Prices Revealed & More

AMD has just released a video on their YouTube page going over both ThreadRipper and the upcoming Ryzen 3 processors. The company will be releasing two SKUs in each line and has reveled pricing for the ThreadRipper parts.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper

So let’s start with ThreadRipper becuase I’m sure that is what you are most interested in. Initially the ThreadRipper lineup will start with the 12-core Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, and the 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. Both of which will feature SMT, XFR, 32 MB of L3 cache, a 64-lane PCI-Express root complex, which enables full x16 bandwidth for up to 3 graphics cards; and a quad-channel DDR4 memory interface. The 1920X will have clock speeds of 3.50 GHz, with 4.00 GHz boost and the 1950X runs at 3.40 GHz, with 4.00 GHz boost. As far as pricing goes the Threadripper 1920X is priced at USD $799, while the Threadripper 1950X goes for $999.

ThreadRipper parts will be available in “early August” alongside many AMD X399 motherboard which we got a glimpse at during Computex. AMD also ran live demos of these chips in the video (below), in which the 12-core 1920X was shown to beat 10-core Intel Core i9-7900X at Cinebench R15 multi-threaded benchmark. The 16-core 1950X was shown to be close to 50% faster than the i9-7900X.

Now we can move on to the Ryzen 3 series. AMD will launch two quad-core SKUs in the series, this will begin with the Ryzen 3 1200 and the Ryzen 3 1300X. Both chips lack SMT, so you have just four threads. The Ryzen 3 1200 is clocked at 3.10 GHz, with 3.40 GHz boost, the 1300X is clocked higher, at 3.50 GHz, with 3.70 GHz boost, and XFR (extended frequency range) enabling higher clocks depending on the efficacy of your cooling. Both of these chips will be available worldwide on July 27th.
