ASRock Shows X399 Taichi Motherboard, Ready for Ryzen Threadripper

AMD have been busy, extremely busy with the recent release of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper range.

The Threadripper 1900X ($549 on Amazon) doesn't offer an nearly ludicrous number of threads, unlike its bigger brothers, the 12-core Threadripper 1920X ($799 on Amazon) and the 16-core Threadripper 1950X ($999 on Amazon). It operates at a base clock speed of 3.8 GHz, which is slightly faster than a Ryzen 7 1800X, and features a 4 GHz boost speed along with a XFR boost to 4.2GHz. While it's only $50 more expensive than the "lesser" Ryzen 7 1800X, it offers some potentially big performance gains compared to that processor.

So why would you spend more on a Threadripper 1900X for the same amount of cores and threads as a mainstream Ryzen processor? But the real reason for this chip's existence is to grant access to the beefy X399 platform to folks who only need 8 cores. And unlike Ryzen 7, the 1900X can support quad-channel DDR4 memory on 8 cores (up to 8 DIMMs supported).

AMD is filling out its high-end Ryzen Threadripper lineup today with the launch of the slightly more budget-minded 1900X.

Heavy rains lash Pakistan's Karachi
According to the Met Office, the city is likely to have more rain with strong dusty winds on Friday. Heavy rainfall resumed in different parts of the metropolitan late Friday afternoon.

The lower core count also means that the 1900X has a lower price tag, coming in at just $549.

AMD is happy to report that the three major commercial PC suppliers, namely Dell, HP, and Lenovo, have all got on board with AMD Ryzen PRO and these professional CPUs will be integrated into various commercially-focused desktop solutions in the coming weeks.

"Today's business PC users require more processing power than ever before to run increasingly demanding applications, to ensure they can multi-task without disruption, and to help protect against security threats", said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD. "Ryzen PRO is created to address these needs, and we're proud to collaborate with such a strong set of industry leaders on a robust assortment of AMD-based desktop PCs that showcase the strength and flexibility of the Ryzen PRO platform".
