At the recent Computex 2018 expo in Taiwan, the tech world was stunned as AMD teased us with the 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper cards. That was it though; just a teaser, with no price or specs other than knowing it will be a 32-core behemoth. Well it appears as though we know the price of the processor as it’s been leaked online.
You can find the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X listed in European shops for EUR1509. This means it’s way cheaper than the 18-core Intel i9-7980XE, its closest competitor; currently, the i9-7980XE is priced at just under USD2000. Of course, that leaked price could also just be a placeholder and be changed later.
We also know that there would be a lower spec variant of the second generation Threadripper, although the price for that hasn’t leaked yet. We expect that to be a 24-core version of the processor.
You can expect some more updates about the processor and the price when we have more information.
