AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16 Core $999 US Processor

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is the flagship chip of the Threadripper X399 family. The chip features 16 cores, 32 threads. Clocks are maintained at 3.4 GHz base, 4.0 GHz boost and the XFR technology should help it gain more performance. The chip will carry 32 MB of L3 cache and 8 MB of L2 cache which totals 40 MB. There will be a total of 64 PCIe lanes available on the processor of which 60 can be used by discrete graphics cards and PCIe NVMe storage devices. The chip will cost $999 US when launched.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X 12 Core $799 US Processor

The second chip in the lineup is the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X which features 12 cores and 24 threads for a price of just $799 US. Intel’s 12 core chip in comparison costs $1200 US. The chip features clock speeds of 3.5 GHz base and 4.0 GHz boost. Keeping things in line and if the chip comes with the same die configuration as the 1950X, we will be looking at 32 MB of L3 cache and 6 MB of L2 cache which totals 38 MB total cache size. The chip will feature the same amount of PCIe lanes as the 1950X.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X 8 Core For $549 US - Fastest AMD 8 Core Chip

The latest chip in the lineup is the Ryzen Threadripper 1900X which features 8 cores and 16 threads for a price of just $549 US. This is $50 US cheaper than Intel's Core i7-7820X which is also their octa core model. The chip features clock speeds of 3.8 GHz base and 4.0 GHz boost. Not only are speeds of this chip higher than the Ryzen 7 1800X but it also grants access to more features such as higher PCIe lanes, quad channel DDR4 memory lanes and more I/O support.


Each Ryzen Threadripper processor will come in a large and sexy container with curved edges. It seems to be made of a strong alloy material and has either a plastic or glass cover on the front which is engraved with the Ryzen Threadripper label and logo. The chip can be seen through the mirror and just like the mainstream processors, each Ryzen TR CPU will have the naming printed in clear black on the IHS which looks amazing.

The Ryzen Threadripper 1900X will feature 64 PCIe lanes and the TDP will probably remain set at 180W. The total cache will be 20 MB (16 L3 + 4 L2) which is 5% higher than the comparable 7820X processor. It's easily seen that Ryzen Threadripper crushes Intel's lineup in raw specifications and even performance data we are seeing is just mind blowing. AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X processors go on sale on 10th of August and will be available for pre-order starting today. The Ryzen Threadripper 1900X octa core chip will hit market shelves on 31st August.
