True to its promise when the company showed off the massive retail box for its Ryzen Threadripper last week, AMD today has revealed plenty of additional information regarding its upcoming high-end desktop (HEDT) CPU line-up. This include the unveiling of a brand-new CPU in the family, the Ryzen Threadripper 1900X.
Aside from being the third chip in the family, the new model is also the most affordable CPU in Threadripper series at USD 549 (about RM 2,350). For that price, it offers 8-cores/16-thread setup and runs at base clock speed of 3.8GHz while its boost and XFR clock speed are listed as 4.0GHz and 4.2GHz just like other Threadripper CPUs.
Not surprisingly, the Threadripper 1900X also has similar TDP rating as per its other siblings at 180W. The chip also comes with a total of 20MB L2+L3 cache. However, no performance figures were revealed as opposed to two other Threadripper which we will cover in a separate report.
Nevertheless, AMD still didn’t forget to point out that its new chip is still around 8% cheaper and support more PCIe lanes than its closest rival, Intel Core i7-7820X which also has similar 8C/16T setup. In terms of release date, it will available starting from 31 August although we have yet to receive such information for Malaysia at the moment.
