The remaining two models of the developer's impressive HEDT family will be available for purchase at the end of this month, just in time for the arrival of the next generation of Intel
A little before Intel's press conference gave us an introduction to Basin Falls Refresh, Or by their names to be a bit more familiar Core X i9-9980XE, Core X i9-9960X and their brother, provided AMD Its own announcement worth considering - two models Threadripper The remaining 2000 with 24 processing cores and 12 processing cores will be offered for official purchase on 29 in October, or in a little less than three weeks.
The launch date of the ThreadRipper 2970WX and the Threadripper 2920X will precede the new Core X models of Intel, Which are supposed to arrive sometime before the end of the current civil year but so far without an exact and detailed date, and just as importantly - will offer many more cores at the same price level.
It is not possible to make a very accurate comparison between the products because of the slight advantage that Intel has in the practical operation frequencies, as well as the relative advantage in the performance of a single core, but when it comes to the recommended price of 1,190 dollars for the Core X i9-9920X 12 cores compared to 650 dollars For the 2920 ThreadRipper with the core 12, and between the 1,980 for the 18 model and the Intel Cores for 1,300 for a model with additional 6 cores fromAMD - This is a figure that is impossible to ignore or neglect.
At this point, it seems that the main competition of the fresh Threadripper models, and especially of the 2920X model, will be against the first generation Threadripper models, whose prices continue to fall gradually - when currently the The Threadripper 1950X is the 16 kernel At a total price of USD 780 in Amazon, and The Threadripper 1920X with its 12 cores At a total price of 628 USD only. A celebration for home consumers who dreamed up to two years ago to receive anything more than four cores in their processor.
No matter what your personal preference will be in the end - there is no doubt that we are in a blessed period where private users have access to greater and more diverse processing power than ever before.
