    3rd member of Threadripper CPU is announced: 8 core 1900X for $549

    AMD's Threadripper processor series have still yet to officially release until August 10, but that isn’t stopping them from announcing yet another iteration. Previous 16 and 12 core chips are now due to be joined by an 8-core Ryzen Threadripper 1900X on 31st August with a price tag of $549. This chip will have a 3.8 GHz base clock, a 4 GHz boost clock, and the same 200 MHz of XFR headroom as its brethren. Compared to the Ryzen 7 1800X, the Threadripper 1900X will offer a 200-MHz-higher base clock and 100 MHz more XFR headroom to go with what will surely be much higher memory bandwidth. Like its counterparts, the Threadripper 1900X will still offer all 64 lanes of the platform's PCIe 3.0 connectivity to host motherboards.

    The Threadripper series includes the Ryzen 1950X, 1920X and 1900X. The 1950X features 16 cores and will be the flagship model, the 1920X features 12 cores and 1900X features 8 cores. AMD is taking the fight to Intel in terms of pricing, offering higher cores and better I/O for a much cheaper price.
