AMD’s most anticipated Threadripper processors are finally up for sale. As AMD just announced the pricing details on their Threadripper processors. Which will include two models offering 12 cores and 16 cores.
The top tier model on the Ryzen Threadripper platform is known as the 1950X. Which consists a total of 16 cores and 32 threads. While the base and boost clock on this chip will be 3.4 GHz and 4.0 GHz respectively. On the other hand AMD will also be offering a 12 core variant, known as the AMD Threadripper 1920X. That comes with a base and boost clock of 3.5 GHz and 4.0 GHz respectively.
When it comes to the pricing on both these chips. Well the higher end Ryzen Threadripper 1950X comes at a price tag of $999. While the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X will set you back $799. That’s understandable considering the amount of cores the high end model offers. Aside from that in terms of performs both the models will perform the same. Unless the program that you are using is heavily core dependent. But whatever the case maybe both of them will easily hit the 4.0 GHz mark. Or perhaps maybe even above it given the cooling provided.
Both of the new Ryzen Threadripper chips were also tested on Chinebench R15 as well. Where the Ryzen Threadripper got a blazing fast score of 3000 points. While the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X got a score of 2431 points. Which is still faster than Intel current top of the line 10 cores chip, the Core i9 7900X. That only scored 2167 points. Which is understandable considering that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X offers two extra cores. But when you compare the prices between the two, then Ryzen is the clear winner here. As the Intel Core i9 7900X comes at a price tag of $999. While also offering lesser PCIE lanes support for up to 44 lanes. Compared to the wider 64 lanes support on both the AMD Ryzen Threadripper chips.
