AMD’s 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper to Reportedly Priced at $849

AMD has recently announced that they will launch Ryzen Threadripperat with nine models for their new HEDT lineup, which will, the first 16 cores and 32 threads chip, the Threadripper 1998, will come in at 3.20 GHz with 3.60 GHz boost, 155 W TDP, and is absent of XFR.

According to latest reports, this starting-level Threadripper 1998 will come in at $849. If this information is correct, then AMD’s 16-core Threadripperat undercutting even Intel’s 10-core 7900X, which has been announced at $999, with Threadripperat having over 6 more cores and 12 more threads for $150 less. And the Ryzen’s IPC isn’t that much lower than Intel’s to justify the higher prices of Intel CPUs. If AMD really did launch the 16-Core Ryzen Threadripperat at such an aggressive price and the lower core model with even lower price than Intel sure going to get a huge hit in market share.
