Following the incredible launch of the AMD Ryzen series processors, AMD has followed it up with their first high end desktop processor in a long time. Sporting 16 cores and 32 threads of processing power, this blockbuster CPU has shaken up high end processor pricing by topping out at $999. Below that, there are two other Threadripper processors, starting at 8 cores and 16 threads for $549, which justifies its pricing by providing the full PCI-Express lanes and quad-channel memory of its older brothers. Poised to fight Intel’s pricier X299 HEDT platform, the AMD Threadripper is definitely a disruptive piece of technology.
