Both WX series processors will be 250W TDP models. Pre-sales will begin from today, and the CPU will officially go on sale on August 13.
The AMD Threadripper 2950X will be the next chip to be made available, with a release date slated for 31 August.
It's also worth noting that AMD ran this particular Cinebench test on June 26, so it was a while back, and used a sample 2990WX chip; meaning the finished production version of the processor will run even more speedily.
AMD France is billing the Threadripper 2990WX as being the most powerful desktop processor in the world.
Spec details of the Threadripper 2990WX have already been spilled, and the chip is expected to be able to achieve a base clock of 3GHz with boost to 4GHz across its 32-cores. All for the slightly less than three quarters of the price as the top-end chip, coming in at $1,299.
AMD'S 12-core, 24-thread Threadripper 2920WX and the 24-core, 48-thread Threadripper 2970WX and the 12-core, 24-thread Threadripper 2920WX will launch later in the year. This model has a 3.5GHz base speed and 4.4GHz boost speed, 32MB of L3 cache, and a 180W TDP rating, and also supports 64 PCIe lanes.
Part of the performance difference depends on how the game harnesses CPU power, as well as whether you're running it in 1080p or 4K. The Ryzen Threadripper X-series is aimed at "gamers and enthusiasts", and includes 12-core and 16-core models which directly replace last year's original Threadripper products.
CHIPMAKER AMD has taken the wraps off of its second-gen Ryzen "Threadripper" CPUs as it looks to further unsettle Intel.
All the CPUs feature AMD's new boosting algorithms including features such as Precision Boost and Precision Boost Overdrive, and of the chips use the existing TR4 motherboard socket, which means they'll fit into any existing X399 motherboard on the market with a BIOS update.
The Threadripper 2990WX is an impressive chip, but would you benefit from having it in your rig?
It's official, folks. AMD has finally launched its much anticipated lineup of 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper processors. AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 2 family has 4 CPUs. They do include numerous other features introduced with the second-gen mainstream Ryzen chips, however, including compatibility with the StoreMI hard drive firmware, which automatically assigns data to an SSD or hard disk drive assuming your PC has both.
