1711406 Threadripper PIB2
When it comes to AMD's Ryzen Threadripper family of processors, the 1920X and 1920X tend to get the bulk of the attention. After all, the High-End Desktop (HEDT) processors pack in 12 and 16 cores respectively with bargain pricing compared to their Intel counterparts. However, there is one member of the Threadripper family that doesn't get a lot of attention, and that's the Ryzen Threadripper 1900X.

If you're looking to score a deal on the entry-level offering in the Threadripper family, Newegg has posted a HOT deal on the Threadripper 1900X. While the processor usually has a street price of $429.99, Newegg is dropping that price by $50 when you apply the coupon code "NESOCIAL19X" -- without the quotes, of course. That drops the price down to $379.99 with free shipping.

For comparison, during our last round of Ryzen Threadripper deals, the Threadripper 1900X was priced at $449.99. Newegg's current pricing is also cheaper than Amazon, which is selling the same processor for $429.99. The Newegg promo last through tomorrow, 3/21, so you still have time to ponder if this is a worthy deal for a new gaming rig.

The Threadripper 1900X is cut from the same cloth as its beefier brethren, but only has 8 cores. And before you ask, yes, it does have some key advantages over the Ryzen 7 1800X, which also has 8 cores.
