The new HEDT processor will come in an amazing package like nothing before it, packing up to 16C/32T of CPU power inside.

As for Ryzen ThreadRipper 1950X, it's a 16C/32T processor priced at just $999 - compared to the massive $1799 that Intel is charging for their upcoming Core i7-7960X. AMD's new Ryzen ThreadRipper 1950X will drive up to 4GHz under XFR, 32MB of L3 cache and 8MB of L2 cache for a total of 40MB of cache. The big part of the upcoming X399 platform that drives Ryzen ThreadRipper is capable of 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes which is perfect for multi-GPU rigs and multiple M.2 SSDs.

AMD is launching Ryzen ThreadRipper on August 10 according to the latest reports.
