Unnanounced AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920 Rears Head on Motherboard Support Lists

An unnanounced AMD HEDT Ryzen Threadripper processor has cropped up on some of the most well known motherboard vendors' support lists. Following AMD's product stacking for the Ryzen line of processors, the Threadripper 1920 comes with the same 12 cores and 24 threads as the 1920X, although it runs at lower frequencies (3.2 GHz base, 3.8 GHz Boost on the 1920, against 3.5 GHz and 4.0 GHz on the 1920X). The lower frequency threshold means the 1920 also comes with a lower, 140 W TDP rating (the 1920X has a higher value at 180 W).

These news come courtesy of CPU support lists for the ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme, ASRock X399 Professional Gaming/X399 Taichi as well as GIGABYTE X399-Gaming 7. Expect the new Threadripper to become the sweet spot for the 12-core, 24-thread CPUs of our time, since its performance and pricing will situate it below the 1920X's $799, but above the already announced 8-core Threadripper 1900X, which will come in at $549. Remember that all AMD Zen-based processors come unlocked out of the box for your frequency-increase-through-overclocking pleasure, so it should be relatively simple to extract as much performance from the 1920 as the 1920X can deliver.

Reading about this last night. This is good news considering the 1920X is $800.


EDIT: @Raevenlord where are you getting $749 for 1920X pricing? AMD MSRP is $799 for 1920X and $999 for 1950X. 1900X is indeed $549 as you stated.

Don't you mean the 1920X has a 180W TDP? :)

I'm just going to guess on a price point of $649 for the 1920.

where the hell are my stars
I would not be against a lower tdp 1950 (non-x)

This editor has both a time-machine and a brother consciousness that just surfaced while writing the post. Any details that differ from our reality are, in fact, spillages from another dimension where those details turn from mistakes to facts.

Thanks =)

If only 1920X was $749.

Not that I'm buying Threadripper anyway. Maybe once it transitions to Zen 2 we'll see how it competes with Intel HEDT.

I'm not sure if I am going to either. I am keeping a close eye on what becomes of TR 1900X. That is easily the most interesting to me since it melds the high-end platform, 8-core CPU and higher frequency into a nice balance. Eagerly awaiting reviews of gaming, encoding, compression, etc. vs Ryzen 1800X.

seeing those Thread Ripper un boxing videos ,Just wondering if in fact the custom etched ones in the fancy magnetic plexiglass cube ,might even be just a 1920 ? Or do they actually say 1950x on them?

to me the 1920 would be a very good option and i am waiting on reviews for both motherboards and the cpu itself, Ryzen 7 socket M4 chips where nice but long term is TR Ryzen

They're display only, I think the dies are just blank silicon on the chips.
