AMD reveals more Ryzen 3 series SKU details


As far as clock speeds go, the 1300X comes with a base clock of 3.5 GHZ and boost of 3.7 GHz, while the 1200 carries a base clock of 3.1 GHZ and boost of 3.4 GHz. Threadripper and Core i9 are expensive, and more powerful than 99% of people need or want. The 16-core 1950X is clocked at 3.4GHz, and peaks at 4.0GHz.

AMD announced today that its enthusiast processor platform, Threadripper, will officially launch in August, and will start at $799.

AMD has unveiled specs, pricing and availability of the much-anticipated Ryzen Threadripper processors. Also, both the 1950X and 1920X features 64 lanes of PCIe with support for up to four GPUs and they are unlocked for overclocking. Just as it did with the Ryzen 5 and 7 lineup, the company is looking to kick the legs out from Intel's price structure on the upper end of the spectrum too.

It's also becoming clear that Intel is a little concerned about AMD's entry into high-performance computing as highlighted by some of the trash-talking they've been doing about the red team's Epyc server CPUs.

The 16-core Threadripper 1950X at $1,000 compares to a $1,700 Intel 16-core, 32-thread Core i9-7960X and $2,000 for Intel's 18-core, 36-thread Core i9-7980XE processor.

Intel's i9-7900X is priced at $999 (around £770, AU$1,295), the exact same level that AMD has pitched its flagship 1950X - the latter of which proved nearly 50% quicker in the above benchmark test.

At the same time, AMD confirmed specifications - but not pricing - for its first entry-level Ryzen 3 desktop processors. Given that Intel's 12-core and 16-core models aren't available yet, this is the closest we can get to a fair comparison to Intel's high-end models.

AMD said the new CPUs will be out in August. Quite frankly, Intel should be very anxious here, as AMD clearly has its sights on the company. When you take a look at AMD's 1920X, the price gap is still massive, with AMD coming in at $799 and Intel's 12C/24T Core i9- 7920X priced at $1,199. Intel, by contrast, has better per-core performance and higher clock speeds. The R3 CPUs will also be launching later this month on July 27, and as they use the AM4 socket they can installed in the already available A320, B350, and X370 motherboards.
