Just yesterday we shared a story about a list of yet unreleased Threadripper CPUs. Well, it appears it was true! The 8-core Threadripper exists.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X 8-core CPU for 549 USD
The 8-core Threadripper has 200 MHz higher base clock than Ryzen 7 1800X. AMD will offer Threadripper 1900X for only 50 USD more, but considering the cost of the whole X399 platform, it may actually make sense to keep the difference low.
This means that AMD has three Threadrippers ready, with a strong likelihood of introducing non-X parts soon.
The 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 12-core 1920X will be available on August 10th, whereas the 8-core 1900X will be available on August 31st.
