AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX appears on Newegg - Pricing Revealed

Newegg has let the cat out of the bag, revealing the pricing of AMD's upcoming Threadripper 2nd Generation 32-core, 64-thread 2990WX before AMD was given the opportunity to make an official announcement.  

How much does AMD's 32-core Threadripping monster cost? Well, if you believe Newegg the part will cost $1,799.99, a price tag that is similar to Intel's 18-core i9-7980XE, giving AMD an insane core/thread count advantage. 

Strangely, Newegg's listed specifications do not match previous leaks, listing a boost clock speed of 3.4GHz instead of a boost clock speed of 4.2GHz. At this time it is unknown which boost clock specification is accurate. 

Newegg's retail listing states that AMD's Threadripper 2nd Generation processors make use of AMD's Zen+ architecture and GlobalFoundries' 12nm process node, with the Threadripper 2990WX offering a TDP of 250W and support for overclocking.

Knowing UK prices it'll probably be a 1:1 conversion and cost £1799.99.Quote

True and I can bet Intel will price their 28 core CPU as close to what the 2990WX costs as possible so the 2990WX needs to be a decent price.Quote

Gotta wonder, if they do they will have to start bringing down the price of their other parts, if they don't they risk losing more and more market share.

If AMD are really smart, they will offset some of their licenceing fees for the Chinese chips against theyre profits on they're skus and be able to make those even cheaper. This would really make Intel look at they're whole marketing system. But the accountants will probably see it as an easy revenue and take the 100% profit.....Quote

It doesn't cost much to build that chip at all, their 1800 pricing is just to twiddle their nose at Intel. The cost to make it is the same as their lowest threadripper because the silicon is the same. Considering that each of their silicon processors is a bit under 100 bucks each and the substrate that they use is probably about 50 to 100 dollars. Then the fancy packing is about the same amount or less. In total they probably cost about 500-600 bucks each. Amd is making an absolute killing on threadripper.Quote
