    A German web store is listing the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 2990X processor and does so for a price of just 1509 euros. A lot of money sure, but for 32-cores, I mean that's value even at less than 50 EUR per core.

    If that TDP turns out to be true then I'll eat my own shoes! 180W for 32 cores are mightily impressive.

    It's for sure a typo. TDP is 250W for 32 cores.

    The price doesn't surprise me at all, sits at around 375€ per die. A 2700X costs around 350€ so AMD is keeping it very very competitive. Intel for sure is having cold feet for a long time.

    Just figured I'd point this out from another thread.
    Sure its in Euros, but pretty close. From what I noticed, CPUs tend to be a little cheaper in the US. So - close enough.

    Lets hope that gaming on that would be better than on this too many cores machine..

    I expect they are following Intel, and It's 180W at base clock.

    Yes, the 180W is definitely most likely the 3.4GHz base clock. But... that's still very impressive. That's about 5.6W per core (or 2.8W per thread).

    On the other hand, we have to remember that TPDs are very sloppy estimates. It has more to do with what you need in order to cool the CPU, rather than how much power it actually consumes. Sometimes CPUs are much more power hungry than the TDP claims, sometimes it's much less.

    "precision boost 2" and very much yes, but chances are your gaming will be while your real work gets done.

    so many VM's at once ....;););)

    LOL nothing is free. this is the result of outstanding engineering and chip design. in other words it's a geek magnet.
    no self respecting person in the field could resist the fascination.
    so if years of work means something is admired, then yup, "free publicity".

    I was referring to the Online-store ;), 2990X is a geek magnet and stores can just put a listing of it and get free publicity :).

    180 W TDP is without XFR/Boost, boosted TDP should be around 225-250.

    Yeah, and i'm not sure if most places include VAT, but this ‎‎€1509 is including VAT, which is what, 20%? So that'd put the processor at €1259ish before VAT?

    €1259 to USD would be $1461.18, so yeah, $1499 looks like by that math it'll be the price. Or $1399.

    A decent price, for sure. The MCM approach is paying major dividends for AMD, and it looks like they are going to absolutely dominate the HEDT market this year (makes the 7980XE look wildly overpriced). I wonder if Intel will consider lowering the price of the Core i9?

    It's allot of dough, but it seems like a pretty good deal based on the current market.

    $1500 for a CPU
    $400 for a Mobo
    $800 for 64GB DDR4 3200

    Maybe I'll stick with my measly Ryzen 1700X for now.
