New AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processors Have Record-Breaking Performance

AMD announced that their new Second Generation Ryzen Threadripper desktop processors will be available for pre-orders starting August 13.

“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,” AMD’s Jim Anderson said.

Last month, the 32-core, 64-thread Second Generation Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX processor was put to the test, and managed to push the CPU over 5.1GHz on liquid nitrogen. It had a performance score of 7,618 points, which is attributed to the Ryzen Master Software.

Next in line are the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX and 2920X in October, as well as the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X on August 31.

The goal of these new processors is to push performance boundaries. They are ideal for gamers, creators, and enthusiasts who want the ultimate desktop experience and a processor that is able to handle intense workloads.
