AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX, because you deserve more than 16-cores

AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper is world’s first consumer 32-core CPU. AMD has divided Threadripper 2000 series into two groups: WX and X. The latter is aimed at gamers, while the former is for innovators and creators.

Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX starts shipping today, while the three other SKUs will launch in the coming weeks. Motherboard makers have designed new models for TR 2000 series, as new SKUs require up to 250W (70W more than the first generation).
