Two weeks later The dreaded 2990WX Threadripper on all 32 cores, Which at a price of NIS 7,800 or more (when purchased from abroad) is undoubtedly reserved for individuals who understand exactly what their uses are and what they need, the official launch of theThreadripper 2950X 16-core - which can be "popular" and more accessible at a cost that is half that of its big brother.
Reviews that have been launched together with the 2990WX have already demonstrated to us that the Threadripper 2950X may be the perfect processor for those who are interested in proper gaming performance (although still slightly less than those offered) Intel, In most cases) without neglecting advanced processing capabilities in a variety of editing and graphic creation software - and now this model is available for official purchase on both Amazon andNewegg With the option of direct delivery to Israel, when it is reasonable to assume that very soon we will also see initial possibilities to buy it in the local stores.
The recommended price of the Threadripper 2950X stands at 900 USD, which is the price at which it can be found In Amazon, When together with the additional VAT, the price reaches $ 1,182 (yes, it is quite clear that this is an exaggerated estimate that is expected to decrease later), which is about NIS 4,270. In Newegg The price, together with the additional VAT and shipping to Israel, is slightly more accessible, and stands at about NIS 3,855.
It's hard to argue with the determination that these prices will still be too expensive for a large portion of home users, but this launch may bring good news for all those who will be willing to "compromise" on 16 previous-generation cores - theThreadripper The 1950X, which already costs $ 711 on Amazon, costs about NIS 3,030, including VAT, and is very close to the lowest price observed for this model since it was launched.
The price of the 1950 X, which in most tests and queries is a few percent behind its successor, is already below the latest recommended official level set by AMD - but one can certainly hope that the desire to get rid of existing inventory and move into the new era will bring the price to even more lucrative points. Given that the 1920 X is one step below it Stands at an official recommended price of 400 USD only - It seems that there will be a lot of potential here for further price cuts that are worth following before deciding on the identity of the model you will purchase.
