We're currently on Day 2 of Prime Day, and the discounts continue to roll in. While we all appreciate deals on smartphones, Echos and smart TVs, we enthusiasts also crave deals on PC components. Luckily, Amazon is extending its price breaks to some of the most popular enthusiast processors currently on the market. AMD's current "top dog" Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has an MSRP of $999, but today Amazon has the processor for just $699, representing a $300 savings. This is an all-time low price on Amazon, and is $20 less than the previous low that we reported on in April. The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is a 16-core processor (32 threads) with a base clock of 3.4GHz and all-core boost frequency... Read more...
Earlier this month at Computex, Intel announced its Core i7-8086K processor to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the famed 8086 debut. The flagship mainstream processor offers 6 physical cores (12 threads) and has a single-core boost of 5GHz. To coincide with the launch, Intel kicked off a contest to giveaway 8,086 of the processors worldwide, with 2,086 confirmed for the U.S. market. For those that didn't score a free Core i7-8086 in the contest, you can purchase one from Amazon for $425. For those that did win a processor, AMD is offering up a tantalizing deal to rain on Intel's parade. AMD is giving the first 40 winners that sign up (and qualify) the... Read more...
It's been a while since AMD first launched its ground-breaking Ryzen Threadripper processor family, and they are still incredibly potent chips for enthusiasts that need an overabundance of cores. When the range-topping Ryzen Threadripper 1950X landed, it had an MSRP of $999. Over the past year, it has fallen to $879 and then to $799. Now, the processor is selling for the low, low price of $719 over at Amazon. To put that in perspective, the "lesser" Ryzen Threadripper 1920X debuted with an MSRP of $799. The same processor is currently selling for $668 on Amazon, but for the extra $50, it'd probably be prudent to just push the pedal the metal and go for... Read more...
Have you been eyeing AMD's X399 enthusiast platform and the Ryzen Threadripper processors that accompany it, but couldn't muster the [financial] strength to make a purchase? Well, Amazon is looking to make that decision a bit easier by slashing the price of the range-topping Ryzen Threadripper 1950X by $120, dropping it down from $999 to $879. That's a pretty nice discount for a relatively new processor, and only further cements the value proposition that the Ryzen Threadripper family represents compared to its Intel Core X competition. The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has 16 physical cores and is capable of executing 32 threads. The processor features a base clock of 3.4GHz and all-core boost frequency... Read more...
We've been spending quality time with AMD's Ryzen Threadripper in various incarnations, both building our own setups for testing and with OEM systems like the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition beast of a gaming desktop. Initially, with the first chip we received in the system, we saw some strong numbers to be sure. However, yesterday we got our hands on another retail Ryzen Threadripper 1950X processor, and after swapping it out with the pre-production chip in the Alienware system, we saw a notable performance jump.

It is AMD’s time to shine this week, as the company announced availability dates for the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X and 1950X along with the addition of a new member of the family: the 8-core, 16-thread 1900X. AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper processors are aimed at enthusiasts, and they of course are going to want to overclock the snot out of them. Luckily, those that rely on exotic forms of cooling to extract the most performance out a chip will be happy to know that the Ryzen Threadripper has a bit of headroom. The folks over at Lab501 were able to get a shot of a Ryzen Threadripper 1950X overclocked to 5.2GHz with liquid nitrogen. If you need a refresher, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has a base...

Here’s the moment that many PC performance enthusiasts have been waiting for: pricing and specs for AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper family of processors (as well as a couple of benchmark numbers). AMD first teased details about the high-end desktop (HEDT) processors back in mid-May, but we now have additional details on the first two products in the family. Both processors are of course based on the 14nm Zen core, make use of AMD’s new Socket TR4 interface, support quad-channel DDR memory, and feature a total of 64 PCIe lanes. In addition, both processors will come from the factory unlocked. Without further ado, here’s how each processor stacks up: Ryzen Threadripper 1920X: 12 Cores, 24 Threads, 3.5/4.0... Read more...
AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper family of HEDT processors is just a few weeks away from launch, which means that we'll likely soon be seeing more performance benchmarks leak to the internet before we get our hands on the chip here for an official unveil. We’ve seen previous leaks with the top-of-the line 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X via Geekbench, and now that same processor is making the rounds again via both Geekbench again and SiSoft SANDRA. This time around for Geekbench, single-core scores actually regressed a bit compared to its first outing back in June. Single-core performance dropped down to 4074 (from 4216). However, its multi-core score increased nicely from 24723 to 26768.... Read more...
