    Hey all! Has anyone heard anything about the release date for the Threadripper 1900x? Been poking around and I see a release date set for August 31, 2017 (tomorrow), but I haven't seen much chatter to confirm if thats the case or not!

    Guess we'll know in a couple of hours then :D
    I'd suggest to wait for a few (Guru3D?) reviews comparing 1900x to Ryzen and Coffee Lake-K. But that will take a couple of months for sure. I wouldn't go for the lesser thread ripping beast anyway ;)

    Hope you'll be happy with the purchase, the specs on it aren't easy to rival. Though, I do think you'll need a good CPU cooler for it ;)

    I've been eyeing the 1900X as well, just because I haven't done a new build since 2014, and excited about getting back to AMD. Used to be solely AMD way back when they were top dog.

    But my 4930K at 4.5ghz is still a major player.

    You got a 6 core at 4.5

    Really no need to upgrade, especially if you're mainly gaming.

    At Guru, how often is it really about "need?" LOL! :)

    But I agree. For gaming, it would be a side-grade at best.

    After getting the parts and having a few days to play with this beast I have to say I am stoked with the performance! This thing is fantastic!
