Two AMD 16-core Threadripper parts have been listed online, both of which have clock speeds of over 3.2GHz.



Read more on AMD's new 16-core Threadripper CPUs.

It's crazy to think how so many spent $1700 on a 6950X no more than a year ago and now these are coming out and will likely be below $1000 and outperform it. And people really liked these CPU's. So it's not just that the 6950X was $700 overpriced, it was actually behind in performance as well to what was possible from a company with a much smaller budget.

I need CPUs that can run well above 4.0ghz, the 6950X can do that easy.

Ryzen on the other hand.......

What do you need a CPU above 4Ghz for?

I was just about to ask that, why would you even want 10 cores operating at 4GHz? Would be like a furnace.

Neither of those explanations make sense. A Ryzen 1700X from silicon lottery clocked at 4Ghz for $370 versus a 6950X 10-core clocked at 4.35Ghz for $1500. I don't buy it. A 6950X 10-core clocked at 4.8Ghz for $800-1000, yes, I get that, but that doesn't exist. Yet.

@NeverBackDown.
Have you heard of the term "humor". Look it up, life is much better when you are having fun
