AMD reveals 16 core Ryzen monster processor
Reports suggest that AMD could be working on a new water cooling solution for its new Threadripper CPUs, which will come bundled with the CPUs.
According to Japanese tech site Hermitage Akihabara, the top range models of AMD's new CPUs, the Threadripper 1950X and 1920X will come bundled with a water cooler, which will be more effective than a standard fan setup.
The Threadripper 1950X is AMD’s 16-core model which runs at 3.4/4.0GHz (base/boost clock) and is priced at $999 (around £770, AU$1,260). The 1920X is the 12-core CPU clocked at 3.5/4.0GHz (base/boost) which will lighten your wallet to the tune of $799 (around £615, AU$1,010). However, we dont know for sure if this will affect the price of the AMD processor.
However, even if the costs are higher, it will still be cheaper than Intel's new Core i9 processors, giving these Threadrippers a superb value for money. For example, Intel’s i9-7960X processor (its 16-core model) costs $1,699 (around £1,315, AU$2,150), compared to AMD’s asking price of $999 (around £770, AU$1,260) for the 1950X.
These are just rumors for now, and we will have to wait for an official statement from AMD to confirm.
