The prices of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper are announced. The 16 core, 32 thread 1950X will be available at $999 USD. The 12 core, 24 thread 1920X will be priced at $799 USD. The 1920X has a higher base clock than the 1950X at 3.5 GHz. They both have the same CPU boost clock speed at 4.0 GHz.

When comparing the Threadripper with Intel Core i9 series, Threadripper processors have a higher number of CPU cores in similar price point. You will have to pay 50% more money to get a 12 core, 24 thread Intel i9-7920X, instead of the 1920X.

The Threadripper CPUs have qual-channel memory support and 64 PCIe lanes for increased popularity of add-in cards.They have a TDP of 180W.


In AMD’s product updates, it shows how the Threadripper runs in Cinebench R15, a benchmark program that test 3D rendering. AMD compares the 1950X and 1920X with the i9-7900X.

The 1950X comes on top with a score of 3062, about 43% higher than the i9-7900X. The 1920X scores less with 2431, still 12% better than the i9-7900X. Please be reminded that AMD’s test is not based on the same core count of the processors, but their prices.

If we take a look at the price-to-performance ratio, we will be able to find out which is the best bang for the buck enthusiast grade CPU.

The Intel i9-7900X has a ratio of 2.17 marks per $1 USD. The comparable 1920X scores 3.04 marks per $1 USD, slightly lower than the 1950X’s 3.07 per $1 USD. The Threadripper performs more than 40% better at the same price.

Take all the above results as reference only, because we do not know how AMD’s test machines are configured.
