A few days ago AMD introduced its new Ryzen Threadripper processors, which are focused on more professional experiences that require full power. At first it was said that these processors were not designed for gaming, something very similar to what happens today with the Intel Core i9, but AMD is taking advantage of SIGGRAPH 2017 to show a new version of its management program ‘Ryzen Master’, that will allow us to enable an interesting ‘Game Mode’.
In addition to this, AMD also took the stage to announce a new Ryzen Threadripper 1900X, with which they seek to offer a more ‘affordable’ option within the power market in the high range.
Ryzen Threadripper 1900X
This new Ryzen Threadripper 1900X processor completes AMD’s high-performance family, where the 1950X offers 16 cores at 3.4 GHz (up to 4 GHz with Turbo mode) and 32 threads of execution. the 1920X arrives with 12 cores at 3.5 GHz (4 GHz with Turbo) and 24 threads of execution. And this new 1900X comes with 8 cores at 3.8 GHz (4 GHz with Turbo) and 16 threads of execution. Of course unlocked and ready for overclocking.
AMD emphasizes that the Threadripper family is aimed at users within the areas of scientific research, software development, engineering, video and photo editors. As well as 3D content editors, musicians and producers. But they are also attacking the growing market of ‘Gamers Multitasking’, which are those that from a PC play, stream, edit and create content, all at the same time and in 4K.
That is why all Ryzen Threadrippers come with a management software that allows us to adjust all the parameters for an ideal experience. But for those who are not experts on the subject, AMD has added some profiles designed for each user, such as video editing, rendering and even gaming.
As we know, AMD is launching everything against Intel, comparing its new Ryzen Threadripper processors with Intel’s high-end, where according to figures from the same AMD its 1900X is planted against the Core i7 7820X in price and power.

When the arrival of the Ryzen Threadripper was announced AMD also mentioned that we would need a 4094-pin socket called TR4 and the X399 chipsets. Now during SIGGRAPH 2017 the company has announced the first partners that will manufacture these plates from day one, which are ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.
As well as the cooling options to close the circle. In addition to that Alienware was among the first to raise their hands when announcing a special version of their PC ‘Area 51, which will arrive with Ryzen Threadripper 1950X at a price to be announced later.
AMD also wants to enter through the eyes
As a curious point, AMD is focusing on the box that will bring Ryzen Threadripper, as it is a special packaging that highlights that it is a special product, which will even include its own special edition screwdriver and a base to fix it to the plate.
And the already characteristic wink-attack-comparative to Intel.

Finally, we would like to share with you the capture of a benchmark in Cinebench r15 for the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, where he obtained a bestial 4122 points and that AMD presumes as a proud father of his baby. Now we hope to do our own review to confirm it.
