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 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.

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.
