AMD 32-Core 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX: Unboxing The Beast With Specs And Pricing (Updated)
In addition to some motherboards, memory, and accessories, we’ve got some hands-on video time with Threadripper’s new stylized box and the massive Wraith-ripper air cooler, for which AMD partnered-up with Cooler Master to produce.
As has been previously leaked, there are four new Ryzen Threadripper SKUs. The 24-core Threadripper 2970WX and the 32-core Threadripper 2990WX have the “WX” designation to signify that they are aimed at the workstation market (i.e. Radeon Pro WX). The standard 12-core Threadripper 2920X and 16-core Threadripper 2950X are aimed at gaming enthusiasts.
As for pricing and specifications, here’s what AMD is revealing so far:
- Threadripper 2990WX: 32 cores / 64 threads, 3GHz to 4.2GHz, 250W, $1,799
- Threadripper 2970WX: 24 cores / 48 threads, 3GHz to 4.2GHz, 250W, $1,299
- Threadripper 2950X: 16 cores / 32 threads, 3.5GHz to 4.4GHz, 180W, $899
- Threadripper 2920X: 12 cores / 24 threads, 3.5GHz to 4.3GHz, 180W, $649
All four of the new processors support 60 PCIe 3.0 lanes and support up to DDR4-2933 memory. They are of course all based on Pinnacle Ridge Zen+ 12nm architecture with improved latencies and boosted clock speeds across the board.
