AMD has revealed the prices for some of its Threadripper CPUs, using the same effective strategy that it executed for its mainstream Ryzen chips: set eye-popping discounts compared to Intel’s own Core i9 family, and probably earlier release dates, too.  On Thursday, AMD disclosed the model numbers, price, and rough availability of both the 12- and 16-core AMD Threadripper chips, designed for the upper echelons of gaming and content-creation PCs:

* The $999 16-core, 32-thread 3.4-GHz Threadripper 1950X
* The $799 12-core, 24-thread 3.5-GHz Threadripper 1920X

AMD seems to have its finger on two key triggers that help drive sales: price, and availability.  In a video showing how the Threadripper chips compare against Intel’s most powerful currently available CPU, the $999 10-core Core i9-7900X, AMD tested the multi-threaded Cinebench R15 benchmark on all three. The $799 Threadripper 1920X turned in a score of 2431 compared to the Core i9-7900X’s 2167, while the flagship $999 Threadripper 1950X blew past both of those at 3062.
