Earlier this month, AMD unleashed its second generation Ryzen Threadripper HEDT processors based on 12nm Pinnacle Ridge architecture. The chips offer a number of nice performance improvements compared to their predecessors, especially if we consider the 24-core 29DRWX threaded router and the 32-core 2990WX threaded router (you can HotHardware watch here).
But the first thing many professionals had in mind who wanted to build immensely powerful multi-core productivity beasts was when we started seeing price reductions in the first generation of Ryzen Threadripper processors. Good, 3DCenter has received an official price card from AMD that shows how prices have shifted so that the Ryzen Threadripper SKUs # 39; s of the first and second generation can live in harmony.
The Threadripper 2920X, 2950X, 2970WX and 2990WX are priced at $ 649, $ 899, $ 1,299 and $ 1,799 respectively. In this way, the first generation of the first generation of the first generation can see their advisory requirements drop to $ 299, $ 399 and $ 799 respectively for the Threadripper 1900X, 1920X and 1950X.
When the 8-core Threadripper 1900X originally debuted, it was priced at $ 549. Similarly, the 12-core Threadtripper 1920X and 16-core 1950X came on the market with MSRP's of $ 799 and $ 999 respectively. Retailers like Amazon have already recorded these new, lower prices and it sells the Threadripper 1950X for even lower at $ 720. Newegg has priced the Threadripper 1900X slightly higher than the MSRP for $ 319.99.
Unfortunately for those looking for the 12-core Threadtripper 1920X, it seems that retailers do not have enough of this chip in stock, so we see higher than expected prices.
