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 Threadripper 1920X is a 12 core 24 thread CPU, currently second only to the 1950X (16 cores, 32 threads) in AMD’s latest Zen-based line for high end desktop processors. Similarly to the 1950X, it has a base clock speed of 3.5 GHz (3.4 GHz for the 1950X) which can boost to a maximum of 4.0 GHz and features quad channel DDR4 and 64 PCI Express lanes. Also, like the other Threadripper CPUs, the 1920X sits on the latest X399 platform. Intel has a number of processors which outperform the 1920X, such as the i5-7600K which is a quarter of the price and offers around 25% better performance than the 1920X for single and quad core usage (most games only use a maximum of four cores). However, the 1920X is squarely aimed at offering value for money to multi-core workstation users and in this category, the 1920X is closer to competing with Intel’s 15% dearer 10 core, 20 thread i9-7900X. The 8 core, 16 thread 1900X, will shortly be available as the third product in the Threadripper line, featuring a slightly higher base clock of 3.8 GHz. [Aug '17 CPUPro]
