AMD was very coy when it announced the second-gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs at Computex 2018, and while we saw a European listing for the Threadripper 2990X we now have a new Canadian listing that teases a price of $2399 CAD which converts to around $1850.

CanadaComputers is behind the sneaky listing with the company confirming the codename of the CPU and that it is indeed the 32C/64T beast from AMD. AMD's upcoming Ryzen Threadripper 2990X is a 32C/64T chip with a 250W TDP, 80MB of cache and plenty of CPU horsepower for any task you'll throw at it.

The codename on the Ryzen Threadripper 2990X is YD299XAZAFWOF and CanadaComputers' listing teases it will ship with the same awesome packaging as the first-gen Threadripper CPUs.
