Quality Features of the CPU:
AMD is aiming Threadripper at content creators, gamers, and overclockers who want the best performance without spending too much.
- These CPUs are physically much larger than mainstream ones and use a different socket called TR4.
- They support quad-channel DDR4 RAM and feature 64 lanes of PCIe bandwidth for high-speed components such as graphics cards and SSD arrays.
- The CPUs have a much higher 180W TDP rating and need specific coolers.
- They have SenseMI technology which adjusts operating parameters dynamically using hundreds of embedded sensors.
Threadripper-compatible X399 motherboards are available from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, and ASRock. They will also show up in pre-built systems from some boutique builders.

Two More New Threadripper:
The third variant of Threadripper called Ryzen Threadripper 1900X. It will be launched on August 31st. It comes with eight cores, 16 threads,3.8GHz base clock, and, 4GHz boosted clock.
If these chips seem to be too high for you, a fourth Threadripper seems to be on the way. The Threadripper 1920 is also a 12-core, 24-thread processor, clocked at 3.2GHz, boosting to 3. 8GHz. It consumes less power (140W) than its sister Threadripper 1920X.
