No Comments on AMD reveals more about Ryzen 3 and Threadripper — Intel should be worried

AMD is making big moves lately. While the company never really went away,

for a while it was clearly struggling to match up to Intel on both

performance and value. Slowly but surely, the consumer-friendly company has

become much more competitive.


														
							

Its Ryzen 5 and 7 processors are excellent multi-core performers, while its Radeon RX 500 series of graphics cards offers amazing performance at a low price. Heck, its GPUs are very popular for cryptocurrency miners too.

Today, AMD reveals more about some upcoming Ryzen processors — both on the high and low end. The company is sharing details on the budget-friendly Ryzen 3 and the awe-inspiring Threadripper chips for enthusiasts and professionals. We now have some specifications, pricing, and release dates.

“You know about its 16 cores and 32 threads, but it also delivers a 3.4 GHz base clock and a 4.0 GHz boost. And I’m happy to say we’ve priced the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X at a suggested retail price of USD $999, bringing incredible price/performance ratios to the High End Desktop (HEDT) market. Joining the 16-core CPU will be the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, which packs 12 cores and 24 threads, a 3.5 GHz base clock and a 4.0 GHz boost, at a USD $799 suggested retail price.” says Jim Anderson SVP and GM of Computing and Graphics, AMD.
