Last year, AMD released its Ryzen line of processors, but it didn’t stop there. Later in August 2017, AMD launched three impressively overclockable high-end desktop CPUs – named ‘Threadripper’.
However, AMD wasn’t sitting on its hands after releasing the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, one of the fastest processors on the market when it launched. AMD has since followed up with the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X and 2990WX that have dethroned it. AMD has also come out and suggested that bitcoin miners use Threadripper processors for cryptocurrency mining, to save cash on future upgrades, due to the insane compute power of Threadripper chips.
And with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2nd Generation, we’re getting much faster performance than we expected – creating a wider performance gap than what we saw when Ryzen 2nd Generation succeeded AMD Ryzen. This is thanks to the higher core counts, at the very least.
So, here’s everything you need to know about AMD Ryzen Threadripper – from the release date to prices, even performance. And, as always, be sure to keep this article bookmarked, as we’ll update it with any new information that comes our way.
