AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are coming out in the summer and as we get closer to launch we are getting some leaks regarding the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. The CPU in question has 16 cores and 32 threads. The processor features a base clock of 3.4 GHz and boosts to 3.6 GHz. With XFR you can get this CPU up to 3.8 GHz.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has 32 MB of L3 cache and 8 MB of L2 cache. Talking about the performance of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, we see that the CPU managed to score 4167 points in single core test and 24539 points in the multi-core test. To give you an idea the Intel Xeon E5-2697A V4 manages to score 3651 and 30450 points respectively.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X managed to score higher when it comes to single threaded performance but we can see that the AMD CPU lags behind the Intel CPU when it comes to multiple core performance. The Intel CPU compared here is a bit outdated but it does give us an idea of what we can expect from the AMD Threadripper series of CPUs.
While the multiple core performance is a but lower than the Intel CPU it all comes down to price. If the price of the AMD CPU will be competitive enough, I think the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X could be great value for money for content creators and enthusiasts that need all this power. We have heard rumors regarding the price but nothing is for sure.
These CPUs are expected to come out in the summer and we will be able to learn more about them then. Remember that it is likely that this is an engineering sample and that the performance of the final product will be much higher than what we see here.
Let us know what you think about the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X!
