AMD releases two new Ryzen Threadripper processors to the market

AMD is releasing two new high-performance desktop processors to the market: the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X. The launch marks the company’s major step forward in performance and features for the high-end desktop market, with the new processors aiming to exceed the expectations of even the most demanding developers, researchers, prosumers, creators, and multi-tasking gamers.

“The level of global support and excitement built-up around AMD Ryzen processors has been incredible to watch these last few months. With today’s Ryzen Threadripper launch, we deliver a new level of computing power to the world’s fastest ultra-premium desktop systems via an entirely new platform and set of multi-core processors,” said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD. “Ryzen Threadripper is the jolt of innovation that the high-end desktop customer was waiting for, providing the long-awaited ability to choose a processor that best fulfills their computing needs at a competitive price.”

The Threadripper 1950X is poised to deliver unprecedented multiprocessing power like never before in consumer desktop systems. It is supported by 16 cores, 2 processing threads, and 40MB processor cache. On the other hand, the Threadripper 1920X provides 12 cores, 24 processing threads, and 38MB processor cache.

Both the new models of Ryzen Threadripper support the new Socket TR4 platform, supporting up to 64 PCIe lanes, quad channel DDR4 memory, and AMD' simultaneous multithreading (SMT) technology. They are also built around AMD’s x86 “Zen” core architecture and are designed to deliver overwhelming power, unrestrained potential, and indisputable supremacy over comparable products in the market.

The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and Threadripper 1920X are available in the market starting this month.

The third variant, the 8-core 16-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1900X, is expected to be available August 31.
