AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and 2950X Preview

AMD’s Ryzen 2nd Gen Threadripper 2990WX is available to pre-order in the UK

AMD has officially revealed their Ryzen 2nd Generation Threadripper series of CPUs (preview available here), and as usual, AMD has not provided us with UK pricing ahead of launch, leaving us waiting with baited breath to see how well USD converts to GBP. 

AMD’s Threadripper 2990WX 32-core processor is now available for pre-order at UK retailers, with Overclockers UK opening orders with a price tag of £1,639.99, making AMD’s new flagship £90 cheaper than Intel’s “competing” i9-7980XE, which retails for £1,729.99. 

AMD’s Ryzen 2nd Generation Threadripper processors offer more than just a core count increase over their predecessors, delivering all of the benefits of Ryzen 2nd Generation, from its increased clock speeds and heightened efficiency to the processor’s tweaked memory controller, improved cache hierarchy and AMD’s improvements to memory latency. These changes will grant AMD a significant generation-over-generation performance boost over their existing TR4 series processors, even when comparing like-for-like core counts.
