    AMD Ryzen 3 Speeds, Launch Date Announced; Ryzen Threadripper Prices and Specs Confirmed 

    Highlights There are two AMD Ryzen 3 desktop CPU models, both 4 cores, 4 threads The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has 16 cores and 32 threads Ryzen 3 will go on sale July 27; Threadripper will launch in early August

    AMD has taken the wraps off its highly anticipated Ryzen 3 and Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. The budget-focused Ryzen 3 line will target entry-level users, while the enthusiast-class Ryzen Threadripper is designed for those who want monstrous amounts of processing power in a desktop. AMD is hoping to gain an edge over Intel’s offerings in the same space by offering higher performance and lower prices.

    There are two Ryzen 3 models, which join the mid-range and high-end Ryzen 5 (Review) and Ryzen 7 (Review) families, completing AMD’s new desktop platform. The Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 both have four cores but are not multi-threaded unlike all other CPUs announced so far. However, AMD will be counting on four physical cores as an advantage over Intel’s Core i3 range which are all dual-core and use Hyper-Threading to deliver four threads. The Ryzen 3 1300X has a base speed of 3.5GHz and can boost up to 3.7GHz, while the Ryzen 3 1200 is clocked at 3.1GHz and 3.4GHz respectively. AMD has not announced other specifications such as cache sizes, but the names and speeds are consistent with the Ryzen 3 Pro lineup announced late last month, so we can expect 65W TDPs.

    Pricing for the low-end chips has not been announced either, but with the most affordable Ryzen 5 priced at Rs. 12,199 in India, we can expect AMD to target the sub-Rs. 10,000 market. The biggest challenge for AMD will be that Ryzen 3 CPUs lack integrated graphics, which will drive the cost up for anyone choosing one of these CPUs over an Intel Core i3. These two CPUs are set to become available globally on July 27.

    At the opposite end of the market, AMD has confirmed that its 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU will cost $999 (approximately Rs. 64,380), and there will also be a 12-core, 24-thread model called the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, priced at $799 (approximately Rs. 51,485). The flagship 1950X model will run at a base speed of 3.4GHz and can boost up to 4.0GHz, while the slightly-cut-down 1920X can manage a higher 3.5GHz base speed but has the same boost ceiling.

    Threadripper CPUs have Intel’s new Core X-series processors, including the high-end Core i9 models, in their sights. With its announcement, AMD showed off demos of a $799 Ryzen Threadripper 1920X defeating the $999 10-core, 20-thread Intel Core i9-7900X by a comfortable margin in the Cinebench R15 benchmark which can take full advantage of multiple threads.

    The Ryzen Threadripper platform brings workstation-class features to consumer desktops, such as 64 lanes of PCIe connectivity for up to four high-end graphics cards and multiple I/O devices running at full speed. All CPUs are also unlocked for overclocking.

    While consumers will be able to buy boxed Threadripper CPUs, Dell will be the exclusive launch partner for pre-built PCs. Preorders for the Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition will open on July 27 in the US. More details about the Threadripper launch and AMD’s upcoming Radeon Vega graphics cards will be announced at the annual SIGGRAPH conference which begins on July 30.

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 56, RX Vega 64 GPUs, and Threadripper 1900X Announced 

    Highlights The Radeon RX Vega GPUs use high-speed stacked HBM2 memory Radeon Pack bundles were designed to dissuade cryptocurrency miners The new Ryzen Threadripper 1900X has 8 cores and 16 threads

    AMD has formally announced a return to the enthusiast-class gaming space with new graphics cards based on its next-generation Vega architecture. The new AMD Radeon RX Vega series takes on Nvidia’s higher-end GeForce GTX 10-series cards, targeting gamers who want 4K quality and variable refresh rates. The new cards will be positioned above the existing Radeon RX 500 series.

    There are two primary models, the Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64. As their names suggest, they have 56 or 64 of AMD’s next-gen Vega compute units, for a total of 4,096 or 3,584 execution blocks called “stream processors”. This makes these cards capable of delivering 10.5 Teraflops and 12.66 Teraflops of compute power respectively. Both GPUs have 8GB of HBM2 memory on a 2048-bit bus. Memory bandwidth is 410GBps for the Vega 56 and 483.8GBps for the Vega 64.

    There is also a Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition which has an integrated closed-loop liquid cooler with a 120mm radiator, but is otherwise no different from its namesake. It can push out 13.7 Teraflops because of its clock speed can reach 1677MHz as opposed to 1546MHz for the is the regular Vega 64 and 1471MHz for the Vega 56. Its power consumption is also rated at a massive 345W, rather than 295W and 210W for the two air-cooled cards.

    AMD’s own cards use blower-style coolers similar to the ones used on previous reference designs, but third-party manufacturers will be launching their own cards with the same GPUs. Reference cards will have three DisplayPorts and one HDMI output, plus hardware switches to control the colour of the LED accents.

    The Vega 56 is priced at $399 (approximately Rs. 25,625) while the standard Vega 64 costs $499 (approximately Rs. 32,045) and its liquid-cooled counterpart costs $699 (approximately Rs. 44,890). They will all go on sale in the US on August 14. Pricing and availability in India are not yet known. The company also teased a small-form-factor Radeon RX Vega Nano card, though no information about its specifications or capabilities is yet known, as well as Project 47, a server product that packs 1 Petaflop of processing power in a single rack.

    Because of the likelihood that these cards will be snapped up by cryptocurrency miners just like the Radeon RX 500 series, prices could be driven up and gamers could end up frustrated. AMD is trying to even the playing field by selling a number of each card as part of what it is calling “Radeon Packs”, at least in the US. These cost $100 extra but give users a $200 discount on Samsung’s CF791 34-inch Freesync-enabled curved monitor, a $100 discount on a Ryzen 7 CPU and motherboard bundle, and coupons for Wolfenstein II and Prey, adding up to another $120. AMD hopes that the extra cost will dissuade miners and be helpful to gamers building a new PC.

    AMD also confirmed the existence of a third member of its upcoming Ryzen Threadripper enthusiast CPU lineup. The Ryzen Threadripper 1900X will have 8 cores and 16 threads, joining the 12-core and 16-core Threadripper 1920X and 1950X. It has a base clock speed of 3.8GHz, a boost clock of 4.0GHz and an XFR limit of 4.2GHz. It will have a $549 price tag and use the same X399 platform as its bigger siblings, which sets it apart from the octa-core Ryzen 7 family because it will be able to work with the full complement of 64 PCIe lanes, and has a 180W thermal ceiling for overclocking.

    This appears to be a response to Intel’s Core-X family, which includes mainstream Kaby Lake-X CPUs with fewer cores and PCIe lanes. The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X will be on store shelves in the US on August 10, while the 1900X will launch on August 31.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Enthusiasts CPUs Go on Sale in India Starting at Rs. 55,999 

    Highlights The Ryzen Threadripper 1920X and 1950X are available already Pricing starts at Rs. 55,999 exclusing GST Threadripper CPUs compete with Intel’s Core X-series

    AMD has already announced pretty much everything there is to know about its high-performance Threadripper CPU line, and now the products have finally been launched. The 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1920X is priced at Rs. 55,999 excluding GST in India, while the flagship 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X will cost Rs. 69,999 excluding GST. The 8-core, 16-thread Threadripper 1900X which was added to the lineup after the former two, will become available on August 31 and its India price will be announced at that time.

    Indian retailers PrimeABGB and MD Computers are already listing the two high-end CPUs, with identical MRPs of Rs. 65,488 for the Threadripper 1920X and Rs. 82,008 for the Threadripper 1950X at both stores. Judging by its US dollar price of $549, our calculations estimate that the Threadripper 1900X should come in at around Rs. 38,499 before GST and Rs. 45,500 MRP.

    Threadripper is AMD’s answer to Intel’s Core-X series, more commonly known as Extreme Edition processors. AMD is hoping to upset Intel’s dominance by offering more cores per dollar, just like it has done with its Ryzen 7 (Review), Ryzen 5 (Review) and Ryzen 3 CPUs so far this year. The launch of the Threadripper models completes AMD’s top-to-bottom desktop CPU lineup – though more variants within each family could still be launched.

    AMD is aiming Threadripper at content creators, gamers and overclockers who want the best performance without spending too much. These CPUs are physically much larger than mainstream ones, and use a different socket called TR4. They support quad-channel DDR4 RAM and feature 64 lanes of PCIe bandwidth for high-speed components such as graphics cards and SSD arrays. They have a much higher 180W TDP rating and need specific coolers. Because the Zen architecture is common between Ryzen product families, Threadripper CPUs are based on the same Infinity Fabric interconnect between internal clusters called Core Complexes, and have the same benefits including XFR which boosts speed beyond the rated limits when thermal conditions allow it, and SenseMI which adjusts operating parameters dynamically using hundreds of embedded sensors.

    Threadripper-compatible X399 motherboards are available from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock. They will also show up in pre-built systems from a number of boutique builders. Dell is the exclusive big-brand OEM at launch time, and has already announced several Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition models.

    It has been a busy year for AMD, which hasn’t had a competitive CPU lineup in nearly a decade. The company has so far launched the entire Ryzen desktop CPU line as well as Ryzen Pro variants for businesses, Epyc server processors, and the Radeon RX 500 (Review) series of graphics cards. High-end Radeon RX Vega graphics cards are set to launch over the next few weeks, and Ryzen Mobile and APU products with integrated graphics are in the pipeline as well.

    Highlights The Threadripper 1900X has 8 cores and 16 threads It will use the same TR4 socket as the rest of the Threadripper CPUs It’s priced at $549

    Back in July, AMD confirmed the existence of a third member of the Ryzen Threadripper processor lineup and now, the company officially launched the Ryzen Threadripper 1900X processor at a price of $549 (roughly Rs. 37,330). This is currently the least expensive CPU in the Threadripper lineup, which makes it an interesting choice for enthusiasts shopping on a budget.

    The Ryzen Threadripper 1900X features 8 cores and 16 threads, joining the 12-core and 16-core Threadripper 1920X and 1950X. It has a base clock speed of 3.8GHz, a boost clock of 4.0GHz and an XFR limit of 4.2GHz. The CPU uses the same X399 platform as its bigger siblings, which sets it apart from the octa-core Ryzen 7 family because it will be able to work with the full complement of 64 PCIe lanes, and has a 180W thermal ceiling for overclocking.

    AMD is aiming Threadripper at content creators, gamers and overclockers who want the best performance without spending too much. These CPUs are physically much larger than mainstream ones, and use a different socket called TR4 and are certified VR-ready. They support quad-channel DDR4 RAM and feature 64 lanes of PCIe bandwidth for high-speed components such as graphics cards and SSD arrays.

    Because the Zen architecture is common between Ryzen product families, Threadripper CPUs are based on the same Infinity Fabric interconnect between internal clusters called Core Complexes, and have the same benefits including XFR which boosts speed beyond the rated limits when thermal conditions allow it, and SenseMI which adjusts operating parameters dynamically using hundreds of embedded sensors.
