In their latest product update video published on Youtube, AMD unveiled information on the availability and pricing for two enthusiast Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, as well as for two of the entry-level Ryzen 3 CPUs (no pricing for these, though).

The Threadripper CPUs will begin shipping in early August, while the Ryzen 3 models will be available starting July 27. The specs and prices for these CPUs are as follows:

  • Ryzen Threadripper 1950X: 16-cores, 32-threads, 3.4/4.0GHz (base/boost clock), $999
  • Ryzen Threadripper 1920X: 12-cores, 24-threads, 3.5/4.0GHz (base/boost clock), $799
  • Ryzen 3 1300X: 4-cores, 4-threads, 3.5/3.7GHz (base/boost clock)
  • Ryzen 3 1200: 4-cores, 4-threads, 3.1/3.4GHz (base/boost clock)

The video also presents a comparison between the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X CPU and Intel’s Core i9-7900X. AMD’s 12-core CPU beats Intel’s 10-core by a score of 2,400 to 2,100 in Cinebench R15. Worth noting here is the price of these two CPUs: AMD’s 1920X costs $799, while Intel’s i9-7900X costs $999. The direct competitor (price-wise) for Intel’s CPU would be AMD’s 1950X, which manages to score almost 50% higher in Cinebench R15, with its 3,000+ score. If we are to find a direct competitor (performance-wise) for AMD’s 1950X CPU, that would probably be Intel’s i9-7960X, but this one costs almost 60% more, currently selling for $1,699. These are not really conclusive tests, but still, the performance discrepancies are there.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
