HWBOT leaked the core count, TDP and base clocks for the Threadripper 2970X and 2050X CPU models. AMD also mentions the existence of 2990WX and 2970WX models and these are rumored to feature watercoolers. There should also be a 12-core / 24-core 2920X CPU, but no specs have been revealed for this one as of yet.

AMD’s Threadripper 2990X flagship was already spotted for pre-orders on a Candian site with an MSRP of ~US$1840 (might be available for US$1,500 in the U.S.), and just recently the HWBOT hardware database leaked the specs for two more Threadripper models. On top of that, AMD’s site now lists the Threadripper 2990WX and 2970WX that are rumored to come with included watercoolers. The two models leaked on HWBOT are the Theradripper 2970X and 2950X. AMD’s website also mentions the existence of the 2920X model, which should replace the current 12-core Threadripper 1920X.

The Threadripper 2970X should integrate 24 cores and 48 threads, and, according to HWBOT it has a 3.5 GHz base clock, which is 100 MHz higher than that of the 2990X model. Maximum boost clocks are not specified, but these should at least match the 4.2 GHz frequencies found on the flagship model. It also has a lower TDP of 180 W, and the MSRP should be around US$1,000.

As for the Threadripper 2950X model, core count is limited to 16, so a total of 32 threads, and the base clocks are lowered to 3.1 GHz, with a TDP of 125 W. Boost frequencies are not revealed, but these should be around 3.8 GHz. WCCFTech suggests that this model might actually end up replacing the existing 1920X and its price could be in the US$600-800 range.

AMD’s second gen Threadripper CPUs are scheduled to be officially launched on August 13, but, until then, we should also find out more details about the 2920X. VideoCardz just leaked alleged specs for the 2990WX model, and it seems it comes with 4.1 GHz boost clocks.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
