The New Ryzen Threadripper CPU By AMD | Price, Specs, Release date, Features

The AMD’s New Threadripper series, Is it for gaming too?

Along with the AMD Ryzen CPUs, AMD has also released a series of CPUs for workstations, servers and such heavy workloads

The most recent release of the AMD’s New Threadripper series is the 1900X priced at $549 that can be and option for high end gaming if you are an Ultra Gamer

AMD Says Threadripper is the workstation platform featuring AMD Ryzen

RYZEN Threadripper and The Cost

First the price. the 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X costs $999, the 12-core Ryzen Threadripper 1920X costs $800, and the 8-core Ryzen Threadripper 1900X costs $550. Comparing to intel copetitors the price is actually about 30% lower, comparing to cpus like the Intel’s 16-core Core i9-7960X priced at $1,700.

AMD is obviuusly fighting for the high end market with Intel’s high-end desktop chips now, AMD just recently unveiled the third Ryzen Threadripper CPU priced at $549 which is a faer price for such a high end CPU. The Ryzen Threadripper 1900X will feature 8-cores and 16-threads, but unlike the Ryzen 7-series, which also features 8-cores and 16-threads, the 1900X will slip into the company’s X399 socket. This is a CPU series for heavy loadouts like high end gamig, rendering, 3d works and modeling apps.

Some may question why 2 CPUs with the same specs, and it may look like a good question. But there is a very good explenantion for this, A heavy workload CPU in a Heavy workload Platform and Board is made for long working hours and much more pressure and much more stability and less crash reports because that is what matters in the high end market comparing to the Ryzen 7 with  light-duty X370 platform, which offers only 20 lanes of PCIe for GPUs and M.2 drives. Entery level Ryzen Threadripper 1900X, which gives buyers interested in paying for only 8-cores the option of using a heavier-duty chipset. Indeed, Threadripper 1900X supports 64 PCIe lanes, as well as quad-channel memory configurations.

You can assume with such a high specs in a cpu the AMD Ryzen  Threadripper  processors with 180W TDP require the type of very strong cooling solution to cool down the whole thing, AMD has recommended even the premium liquid cooling and not every fan or cooling system can calm these strong CPUs down. Amd has actually listed some cooling systems that can work with the Threadripper and has the  specifications to support the 180W Ryzen Threadripper Processors.

 

 

 

AMD Ryzen Threadripper goes Overclocked & benchmarks for Gaming

Ryzen Threadripper’s overclocking AMD showed off a Ryzen Threadripper 1950X with all cores overclocked to 5.187GHz using liquid nitrogen.

“A CineBench R15 result of 4,122 is enough to break the world record for a 16-core CPU” AMD said.

You may not care about liquid-nitrogen overclocking, Basically AMD’s motivation for the demo was to show of to Intel, which kicked off the launch of Skylake-X by overclocking a Core i9-7900X to 5.7GHz. Core count eclipses clock speed.

AMD said a Ryzen Threadripper 1950X being overclocked to 5.1GHz using liquid nitrogen broke the world record.

VRMark & 3DMark
Although the main thing to measure for estimating gaming performance in a CPU is to test that game on that CPU but The 3DMark’s DX11 and DX12 CPU tests provide useful insight into the amount of horsepower available to game engines. Toms Hardware & anandtech.com made very good sets of benchmarks for AMD Ryzen Threadripper gaming peformances You can read the full benchmars in toms hardware site  &  anandtech.com.
