AMD unveiled its latest Ryzen Threadripper processor, designed for “the world’s fastest ultra-premium desktop systems” according to the company.

AMD plans on bringing competition to the premium PC market

During its financial analyst day, AMD gave lots of details about the company’s next phase of its long-term strategy for growth and development. The company is well known for its low-end and mid-range desktop processors and its latest target is aimed at changing this outlook with the upcoming high-performance Ryzen processors for consumers and businesses.

The latest processors are designed to bring novelty, originality, and competition to premium PC markets.

Ryzen Threadripper’s features

The processor sports 16 cores with a base clock speed of 3.5GHz with a boost to 3.9GHz, offering users ample power for gaming, video editing, and more intensive activities. It requires 155W of power and features 32 threads with a new platform with expanded memory and I/O bandwidth.

Threadripper was announced by AMD Senior VP and General Manager Jim Anderson and many of its juicy details still have yet to be revealed.

Ryzen Threadripper vs. Intel’s Core i9

The AMD processor was confirmed alongside rumors regarding Intel’s new Core i9 processor. Compared to the AMD processor, Intel’s Core i9 is expected to boast 12 cores and 24 threads with Intel’s own Hyper-Threading technology. According to rumors, it is believed to be based on the sixth-gen Skylake architecture and could come paired with a new X299 chipset.

Considering all available information, it looks like AMD’s Threadripper will definitely outperform Intel’s existing Core i7 chips, even its best 10-core 6950X. If things go on like we’re used to, the Threadripper will turn out to be a more affordable option and will offer PC gamers the best reason to switch for greater performance at lower price. AMD’s Threadripper processor is expected to become available this summer.
