Within two months of its announcement last May, AMD has finally followed up with some definite details regarding the existence of its next-generation high-end multi-core Threadripper flagship processor to the public.
As for newcomers to the line of Threadripper in question, reportedly there are two high-end CPU models are ready to be marketed in early August, namely: Ryzen CPU Threadripper 1920X for $ 799 (± 10,6 million), with 12 cores / 24 threads and The 3.5GHz base speed can be upgraded to 4.0GHz, while the other, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU for $ 999 (± 13.3 million rupiah), will offer the previously-promised excess of 16 cores / 32 threads with a base clock of 3.4 GHz which can be increased up to 4.0GHz. And just like the typical AMD Ryzen processor, both Threadripper CPU models will also come with an unlocked system that can be empowered to overclock as desired.
The presence of duo high-end CPU models made by AMD is practically going to be a major competitor for the latest high-end Core i9 processor made by Intel that exist today. Although both have 12 cores / 24 threads, the price of AMD Threadripper 1920X CPU is said to be cheaper around $ 400 (± 5.3 million) from the market price of Intel Core i9-7920X CPUs for $ 1,199 (± 15,9 million rupiah ). Similarly, the AMD Threadripper 1950X CPU, although equally equipped with 16 cores / 32 threads but supposedly cheaper about $ 700 (± 9.3 million dollars) than the Intel Core i9-7960X is marketed today for $ 1,699 (± 22.6 million rupiah). Especially with the price of $ 1,999 (± 26.6 million) for the latest Intel Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition with 18 cores / 36 threads, you can bring home two models of high-end chipset AMD Threadripper the best.
Not only the high-end segment, AMD has also announced some new details on Ryzen 3 chips with its newest upcoming budget, which is intended to fill the low end market in the same place as the existing Intel Core i3 chips. As the strongest in its class, the Ryzen 3 1300X CPU is clocked at 3.5GHz (which can be upgraded to 3.7GHz), while the Ryzen 3 1200 is slightly slower at 3.1GHz basic speed (with boost up to 3.4GHz). The first two models of low-end Ryzen 3 CPUs are scheduled to be available soon on July 27, although no price information has been released so far.
