AMD reveals more about Ryzen 3 and Threadripper

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

Obviously theses type of specs come with a hefty price tag. And I'm happy to say we've priced the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X at a suggested retail price of United States dollars $999, bringing incredible price/performance ratios to the High End Desktop (HEDT) market. The Ryzen 3 1200 will, AMD has announced, feature four cores and four threads running at 3.1GHz base and 3.4GHz boost; the Ryzen 3 1300X, meanwhile, increases the clock speed to 3.5GHz base and 3.7GHz boost.

AMD said it will begin shipping its Threadripper CPUs and motherboards in early August.

As you can see, the slide clearly says that AMD's new Epyc processors is a "re-purposed desktop product for server", and that AMD has a "poor track record" and is a "inconsistent supplier". The 1920X, which costs $799, cuts the cores to 12 (and threads to 24), but gains 100MHz on the 1950X's stock clock.

The Threadripper processors are comprised of two Zeppelin dies and based on AMD's Zen architecture, boasting 16 physical cores with 32 threads.

In case you missed it yesterday, both Ryzen 3 SKUs are quad-core parts without SMT (Simultaneous HyperThreading) support, so they will stick to "just" four threads. Both will be available globally on July 27th.

How well performance scales from 8 to 16 cores will depend on a number of factors, so we aren't making any price-versus-performance predictions between Threadripper and Ryzen 7 yet.

The 12-core 1920X will start retailing at $799 while the 1950X will get a price of $999.

The two most anticipated entry-level AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs; Ryzen 3 1300X and 1200 are finally announced and will be coming out July 27, 2017.

Intel's realigned pricing for the Skylake-X processors was quite the buzz, but while the company has obviously reworked its high-end desktop pricing structure, it wasn't enough to stave off the underdog entirely. However, AMD will be counting on four physical cores as an advantage over Intel's Core i3 range which are all dual-core and use Hyper-Threading to deliver four threads.

Are you excited for these new Ryzen processors?
