AMD Ryzen 2nd Generation Specifications - Core Counts, Clock Speeds and Pricing
AMD's Ryzen Threadripper lineup will release in stages, starting first with their 32-core Threadripper 2990WX on Monday, August 13th, and their 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 2950X on Friday, August 31st.
12-core and 24-core models will release sometime in October, rounding off AMD's Ryzen 2nd Generation Threadripper lineup. At this time, AMD has not mentioned a Threadripper 1900X replacement, which seems to indicate that the company doesn't plan to replace their 8-core Threadripper SKU.
Below are all the known specifications of AMD's new Ryzen 2nd Generation Threadripper lineup, as well as the specs of the company's original TR4 offerings.
When comparing similar models on each product generation, we can see that Threadripper 2nd Generation offers higher base and boost clock speeds, with the addition of Ryzen 2nd Generation Precision Boost 2.0 technology should allow Ryzen 2nd Generation Threadripper to offer significantly higher average clock speeds.
