AMD Ryzen Threadripper is going to be taking on the Intel X series CPUs and if you are interested in buying a prebuilt PC that features this CPU, you can buy one from Alienware or IbuyPower. IbuyPower offers PCs starting from $1699 and prices go up to $2799 for the all in the models. But that is nothing compared to Alienware PCs.
Alienware AMD Ryzen Threadripper PCs start from $3199. You do get the exclusive Area 51 casing for the premium price along with other Alienware goodies. With the Alienware PCs, you are getting 16 cores and 32 threads. The base model gives you the GTX 1060 but you can pay extra for a GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti.
The GTX 1080 Ti version will cost you $4399 and if you want 2 GTX 1080 Tis in SLI then you will be paying another $1000. That is a lot of money but then again living on the bleeding edge is not cheap at all.
IbuyPower offerings are much cheaper; IbuyPower offers a decent casing though and with RGB functionality you can customize the looks of your PC depending on what you want.
16 cores and 32 threads should be plenty for enthusiasts and content creators that are looking for an economical option. If you are looking for more cores and threads but don’t want to pay as much as what Intel is charging then you might want to look into AMD Ryzen Threadripper.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper will be competing with Intel X series CPUs. AMD has forecasted a 20% growth in the upcoming quarter. This could be with Threadripper in mind. AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs will also be coming out today along with AMD Vega later this month.
