AMD Threadripper 2: Specs, Features & Price

AMD’s x86 Zen architecture made a huge splash into the processor market last year, perhaps the most striking to its arsenal being the first generation Threadripper processor. The second generation of Threadripper has been announced at Computex 2018 and is taking further strides forward in terms of power and scale.

The new Threadripper will feature up to 32 cores/64 threads mirroring versions of AMD EPYC’s series of enterprise solutions, although EPYC will still hold the performance crown due to its 8 memory channels compared to Threadripper’s 4.

The competition from Intel is heating up with a 28-core beast being shown off at Computex too.

We have the latest details for the Threadripper 2 right here.

AMD Threadripper 2 Release Date
Our best educated guess puts the launch date of the new Threadripper in early August, which aligns with the AMD road map that we’ve seen this year.

AMD Threadripper 2 Price
While everything is still speculation and rumour until we get the official word from AMD, CanadaComputers had a listing for the 2990WX at a spicy $1,835 (£1,400~). Judging from previous naming conventions this would be a higher end version of the Threadripper series.
AMD Threadripper 2 Specs and Features
We have a handy table to compare the first and second generation of Threadrippers just below, fresh from AMD’s slide deck from Computex 2018.

AMD Threadripper 2 Motherboards
The new Threadripper series of processors will feature a peak TDP rating of 250W which is a substantial boost over the 180W we’ve seen on the 1950X. Motherboard vendors have suggested that the current generation of X399 motherbaords might struggle with the power requirements demanded by the new 32 core monster. This doesn’t mean that the current generations of boards won’t be able to house the new threadrippers, but overclocking capabilities may well be limited.

AMD Threadripper 2 Launch Date and Pricing
Our best educated guess puts the launch date of the new Threadripper in early August, which aligns with the AMD road map that we’ve seen this year.

Pricing information really would all be speculation at the moment, but I think we’re all aware that these aren’t going to be a cheap purchase. We’re guessing around the $1k mark but real information remains to be seen.

We’re also missing anything in the way of a Cinebench score from the second generation Threadripper, but considering what Intel’s 28-core super chilled beast did to Cinebench, we’re not too surprised that AMD deftly dodged putting up any of their own numbers. Thunder was probably stolen somewhere along the way.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.

It has been working on 5G since 2016 and has lined up partnerships with both EE - the network operator that pioneered 4G in the UK - and chip maker Qualcomm to ensure it is ready to go with the technology as soon as possible.
