AMD’s Threadripper CPU platform is now available to Pre-order in the UK, allowing interested PC builders to purchase 12-core and 16-core Ryzen CPUs alongside high-end TR4 motherboard offerings from a range of manufacturers.

Today is the first time that consumers have been able to see the prices of AMD’s X399 series motherboards, with all currently available offerings being priced at £330 and over. These prices are exceptionally high, even for an HEDT motherboard, though they are marketed under premium brand names, which means that more affordable offerings may be on the way. 

It is worth noting that Gigabyte’s X299 Gaming 7 is selling for more than the TR4 X399 Gaming 7 (£416 vs ££359), so there is hope that more affordable TR4 motherboards are coming. That being said AMD’s choice to offer 64 total PCIe lanes could have added greatly to the cost of these motherboards. 

There is certainly potential for more affordable motherboards to be released in the future, lacking as much RGB lighting and as many bundled accessories. ASUS has already confirmed that they will be releasing a more affordable X399 Prime-A for $350.
