AMD's Ryzen Threadripper chips are hundreds of dollars cheaper than Intel's counterparts

AMD's Ryzen Threadripper chips are hundreds of dollars cheaper than Intel's counterparts

Intel now commands a healthy lead on AMD in the server space.

How well performance scales from 8 to 16 cores will depend on a number of factors, so we aren't making any price-versus-performance predictions between Threadripper and Ryzen 7 yet.

Recently AMD announced its new Epyc Server processor range based on the RyZen technology that has taken the desktop by storm.

Expectedly, the not-quite-flattering words from Intel caught heat by many observers who believe that this could very well mark the beginning of a war of words between the two chip makers.

"This is an important positioning play for AMD as having a great high-end helps sell the mid-range, but I think they'll sell every one they make", said Patrick Moorhead, a former AMD fellow and now an independent analyst with Moor Insights.

It also has two extra 7 trains on standby that can be brought in to help relieve congestion. Less-disruptive track work will continue near Penn Station into 2018, Amtrak said.

In fact, AMD seems to have its finger on two key triggers that help drive sales: price, and availability. Although AMD doesn't have an 18-core/36-thread equivalent, the Core i9-7980XE is priced at a wallet-busting $1,999.

AMD released a number of announcements about Threadripper as the product moves towards production. You'll find sockets like it on motherboards such as the Asus Zenith Extreme, presumably part of the contingent that AMD's partners will release in August.

The final question? Performance. In the video above you can see the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X up against Intel's 7900X in Cinebench r15, with AMD's new CPUs coming out on top. The duo is pitted against Intel's now shipping Core i9-7900X 10-core CPU in the Cinebench R15 and the results are fun to watch to be sure.

And to top it all off, Epyc has more cores, threads and lower power requirements.

The firm told INQ on Thursday that the 12-core Threadripper 1920X, which comes with a 3.5GHz base speed that can boost to 4.0GHz, will launch for $799, while the 16-core Threadripper 1950X, which has a base speed of 3.4GHz, will fetch $999. In a slide that clearly simplifies what is an impressive new architecture from AMD, Intel claims it merely "glues-together" a number of desktop dies for its Epyc enterprise-focused chips and that the company's "poor track record" made it a poor choice of partner for companies looking to upgrade their data center hardware.
