    Pricing looks good, nearly linear scaling with the rest of the lineup. I personally have no use for that many cores - but people doing video work/running VM's/etc will probably love these things.

    Having 16 cores at 4Ghz would be pretty awesome.

    Seems AMD isn't [yet] wasting their time with lower-clocked and/or non-X variants, and I don't blame them. Considering the limited overclockability of Ryzen, everyone would buy cheaper variants and OC them if they were available.

    Haha funny how the Ryzen 3s were also emboldened at the bottom, like "oh yeah and BTW, these exist too, but they're not worth reporting on".

    So chances are this will clock similar to standard DT Ryzen (4-4.1 GHz), but with 16 cores, and at probably a far more reasonable power consumption than X299?

    Single Threaded performance still sucks?

    12 cores with a base clock of 3.5 GHz and a boost clock of 4 GHz at the asking price of $799 is a steel, really.

    Statistically it will clock slightly worse than the 1800x (it's basically two 1800x's stuck together), so you double the chance of a core not hitting whatever the target frequency is.

    Power consumption per core will be lower, but Intel's top X299 parts will probably cap out at 300w, this might be the same when all the cores are clocked at 4ghz. Threadripper has a larger surface area though and soldered IHS (at least as far as we know). It also has the same AVX performance as Ryzen. Temps will be far lower.

    I guess if sucks is defined by "90% of the competition's for half the price".

    Is´nt 16 cores @4.00GHz, "Precision Boost" just affects 1 core per CCX, up 200MHz over "Max Turbo Boost", Max Turbo Boost affects up to Half of theads, could be up to 3.80GHz, "Turbo Boost" affects all threads, could be 3.60GHz, then is a 16 cores @3.60GHz :infinity:

    yeah, 32 cores "EPYC" draws lower power than 28 cores "Platinium" Xeons :infinity: AMD RYZEN ark are way more efficent than Kabylake/Skylake :pc1:

    Guess you missed all the months of info on AMDs new architecture. They are beating Intel at every price point.

    Single thread performance is good, and you get 2x the cores and a lot more features than Intel.

    This CPU supports ECC from what i have read, so it should be able to compete with some of the ridiculously overpriced Xeons for a fraction of the cost.

    16 cores, 32 threads, 3.4Ghz, 4.0Ghz boost, $999, my freakin goodness

    Hi 2004, you might want to visit 2017.

    Yeah, I'm talking about overclocking though. Like there are definitely people that buy this and have all 16 cores at 4Ghz. Pair with a few Vega GPU's and some decent virtualization software and you can run like 4 fully fledged gaming systems off one computer.

    If I had a family with kids I'd totally do that for nerd cred.

    Umm, since Intel just has 10% higher top clocks (4.50GHz vs 4.00GHz) and less than 5% higher IPC, yeah, but thats on games, ThreadTripper is´nt a gaming CPU, in render you prefer 32 Threads @3.60GHz than 20 Threads @4.30GHz :infinity:

    Intel fanboys will fanboy all over the place.

    Because of the modular design (CCX) AMD can afford to price these very competitively. Intel, on the other hand, charge a kidney for every core you add above 4.

    Treadripper is the ultimate workstation, AMD won 2017 for the CPU. Let's hope they're working hard on Navi.

    I'd guess, logically, with those price points, that the 10-core version would be about $699, and a possible 8 core version (with quad channel memory still and those 64 PCIe lanes) at $599.
    They might not do an 8 core version, in which case I'd hope for a lower clocked 10 core at that price point.

    Also leaves room for a 14 core version at $899.

    All good though. ;)

    Maybe a little cheaper ($50 or so) with the Ryzen 7 price drops.

    Not sure how i feel about rushing towards the 8core. Should've waited for this.. but when
    i bought the 8 core threadripper wasn't even a rumour.

    This is just amazing. This level of performance in a desktop computer is out of this world

    I just checked the pricing on the i9 7900x : Amazon lists at $1049 (out of stock) and Newegg $1186 (also out of stock)
