AMD reveals Ryzen Threadripper release date, 8-core model and additional info

 

This morning AMD has released a lot of new Ryzen Threadripper info, including the official release date for TR4 motherboards and their 12-core and 18-core CPU models.      

AMD has also unveiled their previously unannounced Threadripper 1900X, which will be an 8-core part that features 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes and base/boost clock speeds of 3.8/4.0GHz, which is very high for an AMD Ryzen series CPU. This new part will cost $549.99 and sit between AMD’s Ryzen 7 1800X and Threadripper 1920X.

If AMD’s Threadripper CPUs are designed for anything, it is value, offering a large number of CPU cores/threads for its price when compared to Intel and a total of 64 PCIe lanes across the lineup. 

When comparing AMD’s Threadripper 1950X and Intel’s identically priced 7900X, AMD can offer up to 55% more performance and a minimum of 14% more performance in the benchmarks shown below. Threadripper will need to be tested over a wider range of applications, though for now things look promising. 

When comparing the $799 Threadripper 1920X to the same Intel i9 7800X, AMD offers very similar performance in the tests shown while coming with a price that is 20% lower than Intel’s. Again we will need to look at performance on a wider range of applications to judge how well these CPUs truly compare.

AMD has also said that there will be around 20 AIO liquid coolers that will support Threadripper at launch, with five air cooler options from the likes of Noctua, Arctic and Coolermaster. 

It has been confirmed that AMD will be supplying a TR4 compatible mounting kit for Asetek-based liquid coolers, which will allow Threadripper users to immediately use many existing coolers, eliminating the need to send for and wait for a TR4 bracket to arrive in the post.

AMD’s Threadripper platform will release on August 10th, with their 8-core 1900X CPU releasing at a later date on August 31st.
