AMD unveils first Threadripper CPUs

Not statisfied with beating Intel's mainstream desktop CPUs into a silicon pulp, AMD is now setting its sights on the high-end  desktop markets , unveiling its latest many-core Threadripper CPUs. The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has 16 cores , with the ability to handle 32 threads with AMD's simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) tech. It will  be clocked at 3.4GHz at stock speed , with a turbo speed of 4 GHz.

The CPU is also physically massive ,  as it effectively combines two 8-core Ryzendies in a single package , which will have interesting implications for cooling. Several people online have also cracked the heatspreader off early samples and apparently confirmed that AMD uses solder between the die and heatspreader ,  unlike Intel’s Skylake-Xchips , which use thermal paste between these components.

There’s no UK pricing yet ,  but with a price of $999 US(around£763) , the16-core 1950X is
going to be a very serious competitor to Intel’s 10-core Core i9-7900X, the price of which has already dropped significantly to around £860 inc VAT  . A 12-core CPU called the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X has also been announced, with 24 threads via SMT and a 3.5GHz(4GHz turbo) stock clock speed . Both CPUs are due to be available later in August this year, and will come in a fancy box(pictured) too.
