AMD’s 16 core, 32 thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is finally here to seize the throne for high end desktop processors. The 1950X is the flagship of the Zen based Threadripper series which also includes the 12 core 1920X and the 8 core 1900X. The 1950X has a stock clock of 3.4 GHz increasing to a maximum single core boost of 4.0 GHz and features quad channel DDR4 and 64 PCI Express lanes. This processor is effectively two Ryzen 7 1800Xs glued together with Infinity Fabric (AMD’s scalable interconnecting technology), making the 1950X one of the physically largest CPUs on the consumer market. If you are considering this CPU, you will need a new X399 motherboard with a TR4 socket. Early benchmarks show the 1950X competing with Intel’s similarly priced i9-7900X. Whilst the 7900X has slightly higher single and quad core scores (10%-15%), the 1950X is around 35% faster for multi-core workloads. Content creators, and other core intensive task masters will not be disappointed. [Aug '17 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 5 1600X is the flagship processor from AMD's latest generation of Ryzen 5 processors which feature the Zen architecture. Following on from last month's release of the Ryzen 7 series, the Ryzen 5 series is positioned as a less expensive mid-performance alternative to Intel's i5 mainstream offerings. Once again, AMD excels in multi-core technology. Like the Ryzen 5 1600, the 1600X features 6 cores and 12 threads, but has roughly 11% higher clock speeds (out of the box) for a 14% premium. Like all Ryzen CPUs the 1600X is unlocked. The 1600X is the only Ryzen 5 CPU with a TDP of 95W, the 1600, 1500X and 1400 all have 50% lower power consumption of 65W. Due to its high thread count, UserBenchmarks show that at stock clocks the 1600X outperforms the i7-7700k on multi-threaded tasks by 23%, but it lags behind by 23% for single and 14% for quad-core performance. The 1600X is priced keenly at $249 so a more appropriate CPU comparison is the i5-7600k where the 1600X wins on stock multi-core by a whopping 81%. The 1600X does represent great value for workstation users that also game but its $30 cheaper sibling, the 1600 (non x version), which includes a cooler and has great overclocking potential out of the box is arguably the the value king in this segment. [Apr '17 CPUPro]
