AMD --
Following the rumors of an eight-core / sixteen-thread Threadripper, the 1900X is now officially available beginning today.

While the Threadripper 1950X has 16 core / 32 threads and the 1920X has 12 core / 24 threads, the Threadripper 1900X has just eight cores and sixteen threads. The 1900X has a 3.8GHz base frequency and 4.0GHz boost frequency.

You may be wondering why there is a Threadripper with just 8 cores / 16 threads when that is the same count as the Ryzen 7 series... It's namely for those wanting to use the X399 platform for its 64 PCI Express lanes and quad-channel DDR4 support. The Threadripper 1900X will come in at $549 USD while the 1920X remains at $799 USD and the 1950X at $999.
