Just a few months after the launch of their mainstream Ryzen CPUs, AMD is launching their highly anticipated HEDT Ryzen Threadripper CPUs based on the Zen micro-architecture. The new AMD Threadripper 1950X and 1920X now make up the most powerful CPUs in AMD’s consumer CPU lineup.Manufacturer AMD Model Threadripper 1950X Threadripper 1920X Core Count 16 Core / 32 Threads 12 Core / 24 Threads Base Clock 3.4GHz 3.5GHz Max Turbo Clock 4GHz 4GHz L3 Cache 32MB 32MB Unlocked Yes Yes TDP 180W 180W PCIe Lanes 64 64 Memory Support Quad-Channel 2,667MHz DDR4 (ECC) Quad-Channel 2,667MHz DDR4 (ECC)

When Intel launched their latest Core-X Series CPUs at Computex 2017, full specifications on the new Core i9 series CPUs were not available at the time. However, in a recent press release, Intel detailed their entire upcoming lineup of Core i9 series CPUs.
Of course, the official specification list isn’t new. Several weeks ago, this information was already leaked however, was not officially confirmed by Intel at the time.
The Intel Core i9 CPUs will become available beginning August 12th for the 12-core i9-7920X and September 25 for the 14-core i9-7940X, 16-core i9-7960X, and 18-core i9-7980XE. The 4-core to 10-core Intel Core X-Series CPUs [...]
Back in February when AMD launched their Ryzen 7 series CPUs, they were able to easily snag several of the top spots on the Amazon Best Sellers list for CPUs. Today, several of the Ryzen CPUs still maintain several top spots in Amazon’s rankings, although Intel has reclaimed the #1 spot with their Core i7-7700K.
However, what’s interesting about the best sellers list currently is that the 16-core/32-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X was able to claim the #6 spot on the list, which isn’t something you see everyday. While it’s easy for a $200 mainstream CPU to break into the top, it’s not all that common to find a prosumer $1,000 CPU [...]
During AMD’s SIGGRAPH event, the company finally revealed the full details, lineup and availability of their highly anticipated Ryzen Threadripper CPUs.
AMD will release three products into the Ryzen Threadripper family. At the top of the stack is the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, which will feature 16-cores/32-threads, a base clock of 3.4GHz, a turbo clock of 4.0GHz + XFR to 4.2GHz, 180w TDP and will retail for $999 starting August 10. In the middle is the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, which will feature 12-cores/24-threads, a base clock of 3.5GHz, a turbo clock of 4.0GHz + XFR to 4.2GHz, 180w TDP and will retail for $999 starting August 10. Of course, most [...]
When Intel announced the new Core-X series processors last month, the specifications chart they released didn’t include any detailed information about the Core i9 processors.
However, a new leak over at Videocardz have revealed all that information in what appears to be an official Intel slide deck still under NDA.
As always, take this information with a grain of salt as even Videocardz hasn’t been able to confirm its legitimacy. That said, this latest leak is quite interesting. According to the chart, the 18-core/36-thread Intel Core i9-7980XE features a base clock speed of just 2.6GHz, but is capable of turbo boost up to 4.4GHz which [...]
When Intel announced their Core X Series processors back in June of last month, no information was revealed about many of the specifications of the high end Core i9 CPUs. Aside from the core count, information about the base clock speeds, turbo clock speeds, L3 cache, etc. were still missing from the picture. What were they hiding?
Well, recently Videocardz published a screenshot of Intel’s processor pricing chart for tray CPUs as of July 14. While many details are still missing, the document reveals several key details about the Core i9-7920X, namely the base clock speed of 2.90GHz and 16.5MB of L3 cache.
This is interesting as it puts the [...]
Ahhh. Competition is such a sweet, sweet thing. As AMD has finally “Ryzen” from the ashes as a competent competitor in the CPU arena, Intel is now scrambling to find a way to answer back. Intel’s first offensive was the launch of the new Core i9 series and the revamp of the HEDT platform. According to a new article from French tech publication, CanardPC, it looks like the next offensive is rebooting the mainstream platform with several new 6-core/12-thread processors for the LGA 1151 socket as well as rebooting mobile CPUs with even more cores than ever before.
The upcoming processors will be based on Intel’s 8th Generation Coffee Lake [...]
AMD has always been aggressive in terms of pricing. AMD Ryzen chips already undercut their Intel Core i7 counterparts by hundreds of dollars and it looks like AMD’s upcoming Threadripper CPUs are about to do the exact same to Intel’s Core i9 chips as well.
Today, AMD revealed pricing for their upcoming Threadripper 1950X and Threadripper 1920X CPUs, which significantly undercuts Intel’s recently launched Core i9 series processors.
The pricing for AMD Ryzen Threadripper is as follows:AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (16-Core/32-Thread, 3.4GHz/4.0GHz) – $999 AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X (12-Core/24-Thread, 3.5GHz/4.0GHz) – [...]
New benchmarks of the upcoming AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has surfaced. The Threadripper 1950X will be AMD’s new flagship chip for consumers, and will come appropriately with 16 cores/32 threads, 40MB of onboard cache, and a whopping 64 PCIe lanes.
In a Geekbench run, the Threadripper 1950X is shown to score 4074 points in the single-core test and 26,768 in the multi-core test. This is a bit higher than the last time its performance were leaked, so it does seem like optimizations were made.
Unfortunately, the new score still doesn’t match up against Intel’s new Core i9-7900X 10-core CPU. The Intel Core i9-7900X scores 5,390 in [...]
Alienware is launching a massive lineup of gaming products with their new Area 51 gaming PC spearheading the way.
The new Area 51 Threadripper gaming PC will feature either the new AMD Ryzen-based Threadripper processors or Intel’s new Core-X processors. For those choosing AMD, the Area 51 Threadripper Edition will be the first to feature AMD’s new Ryzen based Threadripper processors with up to 16-cores and 32-threads. Dell claims they will be AMD’s exclusive partner to offer AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors in pre-built systems through 2017. For those choosing Intel Core-X series processors, customers will have the choice of up to Intel’s [...]
