AMD debuts new 32-core desktop processor that outperforms Intel

Threadripper AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 53% Faster Than The Intel Core i9-7980XE

Oh and in case you are curious when these monster CPUs are hitting the market, I'd say in a week or two, a month would be the worse case.

"We created a new standard for the HEDT market when we launched our first Ryzen Threadripper processors a year ago, delivering a ground-breaking level of computing power for the world's most demanding PC users", said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group, AMD. The 32-core, 64-thread Threadripper 2990WX will have the price tag of 1799 Dollars. It will head up a new line of two "WX"-series processors in the line, distinct from the lesser "X" models". Of course, while the 7980XE might be the beefiest chip in the Core series right now, its core count is considerably less than the Threadripper 2990WX.

The NRA, however, can't entirely blame the Cuomo administration from its actions against the national organization. The protest comes amidst NRA court filings that suggest the gun-rights advocacy group is going bankrupt.

AMD claims the top of the line chip is more than 50 per cent faster than Intel's similarly-specced, yet more expensive Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition, and boasts that the CPU has racked up the highest-ever benchmark scores in the Cinebench single-socket desktop processor category with a score of 7,618.

Tests performed by AMD Performance laboratories on 26/06/2018 on the following system. Test setup: TR4 motherboard with AMD "Whitehaven" socket X399 + AMD Ryzen ™ Threadripper ™ 2990WX + Gigabyte X299 AORUS Gaming 9 + Intel Core i9-7980XE.

Strongly condemning the incident, Chaim Chesler, Founder of Limmud FSU said: "This unspeakable act of vandalism can not be forgiven".

It's worth nothing Intel's chips typically fare better when it comes to running applications that require relatively few CPU threads. This $899 chip is the main attraction for gamers and enthusiasts who like to build their own PCs, and for whom the new 2990WX is overkill. But the results are still impressive, particularly given the price difference. 2970WX has 48-threads and will operate at the same frequency as 32-core SKU.

Intel's comparable offering to the 2950X is the $999 Core i9-7900X.

China unveils retaliatory tariffs on $60B of USA goods in latest salvo
The Trump administration is weighing an additional round of tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods. The new China tariffs on the US will impact metals, chemicals, and agriculture-related items.

Rounding out the lineup is AMD's pair of new X gaming processors. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2000s are set to be introduced in AUG 13th. We're eager to put all of this to the test to verify AMD's preliminary results in our forthcoming full review of the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X, which AMD plans to start shipping on August 31. Unlike many online publications, we don't have a paywall or run banner advertising, because we want to keep our journalism open, without influence or the need to chase traffic.
