Ahead of the planned launch of the new 16-core model - you will be able to get the advanced 2017 models of the chip developer at lower prices than ever before
On 31 in August we should see in stores the Threadripper 2950X processor with 16 cores, The second in the new generation of AMD And the first one that is defined as suitable for gaming enthusiasts as well and not only for creators and scientists who use very specific applications - but the developer does not want to wait even a few more days for no reason, and is already announcing a further discount on the three modelsThreadripper Of the first generation, perhaps hoping to get rid of all the inventories before October when the full launch of the second generation will end with the remaining two processors.
Whatever the reason for the announcement of the cut - we'll definitely be happy to receive it.
The 1900 X-core octave, born as an expensive hybrid that had a hard time justifying its existence in front of the cheaper leading Ryzen processors, will now carry an official badge of only $ 300 - making it actually cheaper than the latest leading Ryzen 7 2700X and not Extremely far from the Ryzen 7 1800X. three Processors Which make it clear to us that the cores are on the way to becoming the new mainstream.
The most expensive deal will probably be that of theThreadripper 1920X with its 12 cores, which will now be priced at $ 400 only (!), Cheaper on 250 than the recommended price of the 2920X, which will replace it later and at least half the price of the 16 kernel models. A real bargain for anyone who knows he needs more than eight cores at the most accessible price.
For dessert, the leading-generation Threadripper 1950X model will receive an official price tag of $ 800, which is not particularly impressive compared to the practical market prices of the model which have already reached levels of $ 700 in the past. However, one can certainly hope that the official recommended price that shrinks will also shrink the practical prices in the market - it is worth staying on top in the near future, believing that we can find final clearance prices of less than $ 700, and maybe even less than $ 600 for 16 The coresZen attitude Which he offers.
