AMD unveils 'record breaking' Threadripper 2 CPUs with sights set on Intel

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 53% Faster Than The Intel Core i9-7980XE

Compared to Intel's high-end desktop (HEDT) processors, AMD is claiming similar gaming performance, and much better multi-threaded performance.

If you need serious multithreading power for your rendering or prosumer applications, AMD's new Threadripper 2000 series CPUs will be right up your street.

AMD is putting a lot of pressure on Intel and its X-series CPUs with the new 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper lineup, especially when it comes to price vs. core-count segment.

AMD stated that its 32-core Threadripper 2990WX CPU is open for pre-order starting today, and will be made available starting 13 August.

However, if you are planning on overclocking your new Threadripper (like all of AMD's Ryzen chips, they're all unlocked and practically begging to run faster), you might want to invest in new PC guts to go along with it, because overclocking a 32-core chip will generate huge amounts of heat and consume heaps of power. It runs at a base speed of 3GHz and a boost speed of 4.2GHz. While AMD admits that not all software can scale to 64 threads, content creation tools do respond well.

They added: "It is notable that even the government does not allege that Congressman Collins traded a single share of Innate Therapeutics stock.

And as for the October launch, the Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX features 24 cores of processing power with simultaneous hyperthreading enabled for a total of 48 threads.

AMD's France webpage also posted the Cinebench benchmark performance of Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and Intel Core i9 mistakenly. The company claims that it managed to set a new world record for single-socket CPUS in Cinebench R15, with a score of 7,618. For those who may be wondering, these new HEDT processors are the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX, Threadripper 2970X, Threadripper 2950X, and Threadripper 2920X. The price in Indian rupees has not yet been announced, but it will sell for $899 in the United States (approximately Rs. 61,777). At $899 (£695) it's cheaper than its 1950X's predecessor, despite now offering a is single-core boost speed of 4.4GHz - the highest of any Ryzen CPU and a 3.5GHz base clock.

Due to TR4 platform compatibility for the workstation-oriented Threadripper 2990WX and the 2970WX, AMD had to wire only two dies with PCIe and memory controllers, leaving the other two connected with InfinityFabric interface, and while this might not be a big issue, it does have a slight impact on memory latency, which is why AMD included two profiles and two operational modes. They will be priced at $1,299 (approximately Rs. 89,248) and $649 (approximately Rs. 44,590) respectively.

The second chip arriving August, although not until the 31st, is the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X.
