The non-X 1920 Threadripper CPU could be considerably cheaper than the X variant, and even though it could end up with reduced boosts clocks, the multipliers are most likely remaining unlocked to further provide excellent overclocking potential.

ADM will be launching the 1920X and 1950X Threadripper CPUs next week, with the 1900X coming later this month, but it looks like these are not the only CPUs AMD is planning for the Threadripper family. According to support pages from motherboard manufacturers Gigabyte and ASRock, a non-X 1920 Threadripper CPU has been listed as officially supported, and other non-X variants could also be planned for release later on.

All “X” CPUs in the Ryzen family come with AMD’s XFR technology that provides higher boost frequencies, but reviews have demonstrated that even the non-X CPUs have reduced XFR boosts. However, the difference can be easily overcome by overclocking the non-X models, as AMD keeps unlocked multipliers on all SKUs. Thus, the non-X models could be considerably cheaper, but still overclock almost as well as the high-end variants.

The support pages present the non-X 1920 Threadripper CPU  as a 12-core / 24-thread model with 3.2 GHz frequency and 3.8 GHz boost frequency. L2+L3 cache combines 32 MB of memory, while the TDP is 140W. No price or availability information for now, but AMD is likely to announce the non-X 1920 Threadripper CPU together with the 1900 and 1950 versions later this year.

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.
