Alienware Area-51 Threadripper edition will be coming out on July 27th and it will feature the AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU with 16 cores and 32 threads. This might give us some insight to when we can see AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs hit the market. It is unlikely that the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper edition will come out before AMD Threadripper hits the shelves.
Alienware is known for offering some uniquely insane products and the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper edition is one of them. You can choose from an Intel CPU as well if you are not interested in going the Ryzen way. You can opt for the i9 Skylake-X series CPUs that will be rivaling the Threadripper lineup. You also have a variety of GPU options that you can choose from.
With the Alienware Area-51, you can configure your PC as you desire, the GPU options start with the GTX 1050 Ti all the way up to the GTX 1080 Ti in SLI. This should be more than enough power. The Ryzen Threadripper CPU features 1.5MB of L1 caches, 8MB of L2 and 32MB of L3.
From what we see here it is more than likely that AMD will also announce the AMD Threadripper chips for the DIY market. If this will be exclusive to Alienware then this could cause a massive uproar from the general public that cannot afford or do not want to buy a pre-built PC from Alienware.
In an interview with AMD, the company confirmed that Threadripper will support high-frequency RAM. AMD Ryzen had an issue with RAM when it originally came out but AMD has been hard at work trying to figure out this problem and now faster RAM can be used with AMD Ryzen systems.
Let us know what you think about Alienware Area-51 Threadripper edition and whether or not you think that AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs will be exclusive to Alienware.
