AMD Announced Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen 3 Processors

AMD is pleased to announce the specs, pricing, and availability details for its highly-anticipated Ryzen Threadripper in a video featuring AMD CEO Lisa Su, as well as specs and availability for Ryzen 3 desktop CPUs.

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper will be available worldwide for the high-end desktop market in early August. In addition to the 16-core, 32-thread model previously announced, there will also be a 12-core, 24-thread model available. Both are unlocked, use the new Socket TR4, have quad channel DDR4, and feature 64 lanes of PCI Express. Base clock on the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16-core product is 3.4 GHz with precision boost to 4.0 GHz. Meanwhile, on the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X 12-core CPU, the base clock is 3.5 GHz with precision boost to 4.0 GHz.

Both the Ryzen Threadripper processors offer higher performance in Cinebench r15 than Intel 7900X, as demonstrated in the video. AMD is on track to launch Ryzen Threadripper CPUs and motherboards in early August, with Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition system pre-orders starting July 27.
