Along with launching the RX Vega GPUs yesterday, AMD also released announced the release dates for the two confirmed Ryzen Threadripper HEDT CPUs, and announced a third. The 16 core/32 thread Threadripper 1950X and 12 core/24 thread 1920X will be available on August 10, at their $999 and $799 respective prices, so it will not be long before the X399 TR4 platform launches.
Joining these two high-end parts is the Threadripper 1900X, which only has 8 cores and 16 threads. This matches the Ryzen R7 CPUs while being more expensive at $549, but it does have one Threadripper advantage some of you might like: 64 PCIe lanes. It may have fewer threads, but if you want or need those PCIe lanes for GPUs or other peripherals, you can get them on August 31.
The 1900X also features a base clock of 3.8 GHz, a boost clock of 4.0 GHz, and a TDP of 180 W.
