AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX out of the box (videoScreenshot)
Two modelsprocessorBoth are hyperthreaded, and one physical core can separate two logical threads.In this way, the second-generation Ruilong Threadripper 2990WX has a single-thread price of around $28.coreThe i9-7980XE is up to $55.
The second-generation Ruilong Threadripper 2990WX has 32 cores/64 threads, a base frequency of 3.0/dynamic 4.2GHz, and sells for $1799 (12330 RMB).
In addition to the flagship Threadripper 2990WX, AMD brings the following three products:
● Threadripper 2920X: 12 core / 24 threads, base frequency 3.5 / dynamic 4.3GHz, $649 (¥4448);
● Threadripper 2950X: 16 core / 32 threads, base frequency 3.5 / dynamic 4.4GHz, $899 (¥6160);
● Threadripper 2970WX: 24 cores / 48 threads, base frequency 3.0 / dynamic 4.2GHz, $1299 (¥8900).
Just like the supermarket to buy things, the more the core, the lower the unit price.
The 32-core Threadripper 2990WX is now available for pre-order and is expected to arrive on August 13.The 16-core Threadripper 2950X will be available on August 31, and the 24/12 core 2970WX and 2920X will be available in October.
AMD says the new CPU offers a good performance boost and no fear compared to the original "Dragon Ripper"IntelThe challenge of competing products.
In the CineBench R15 test, the 2990WX was 51% better than the Core i9-7980XE.
In other multi-threaded tests, such as POV-Ray, the 32-core 2990WX is also 47% ahead.
Of course, in addition to multi-threaded applications, single-core high-frequency CPUs may be more advantageous.
The number of CPU "core" wars broke out instantly
As for why the second-generation Threadripper processor is added with the "W" model suffix,AMD said: The company knows that many applications and games favor higher clock frequencies than cores.
To help people better understand the ‘Threadripper’ brand, AMD marks these processors as 'fit for creators and innovators’.
For customers who want a higher frequency, AMD recommends purchasing the "X" model from the second generation "Thread Twist" or the 8-core Ryzen CPU.
