At long last AMD has finally released some specs for the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen R3 CPUs, which complete the Ryzen lineup at the top and bottom, respectively. The two R3 processors are 4-core/4-thread CPUs with the R3 1200 sporting a base clock of 3.1 GHz and a boost of 3.4 GHz, while the R3 1300X will have a base of 3.5 GHz and a boost of 3.7 GHz. The R3 CPUs will also be launching later this month on July 27, and as they use the AM4 socket they can installed in the already available A320, B350, and X370 motherboards.
For those looking for high end desktop (HEDT) CPUs, we not only have some clock speed information on the Threadripper processors but even prices and a release window. Starting at the top, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, with its 16 cores and 32 threads, will have a base clock of 3.4 GHz and a boost of 4.0 GHz. Its suggested retail price is just $999, matching Intel's 10-core/20-thread i9-7900X CPU (3.3 GHz base with 4.3 GHz boost under Turbo Boost 2.0 or 4.5 GHz with Turbo Boost 3.0). The 12-core/24-thread Threadripper 1920X has a base clock of 3.5 GHz and a boost of 4.0 GHz and will be priced at $799. The video embedded below also shares some performance numbers for these CPUs from Cinebench R15.
These two Threadripper CPUs will be available early August, and we will also be getting more details on them following the R3 launch later this month. Do not forget that at SIGGRAPH, also the end of this month, more information on Vega GPUs will be released as well.
