Earlier this week AMD shook the market for HEDT processors with the announcement of the new Ryzen Threadripper that will come with three initial models, however, important details such as the TDP of the new chips as well as the size of its L3 cache .
Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X: cache and TDP
The first models available will arrive on August 10 and will be the 1950X and 1920X in configurations of 16 cores and 12 cores respectively, both with SMT technology to handle a maximum of 32 threads and 24 threads. Both models come with 32 MB of L3 cache memory, which is the sum of two completely unlocked Summit Ridge dies, adding a total of 512 KB of L2 cache per core, so that the total memory is 40 MB For the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 38 MB for the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X.
As the TDP is set at 180W for both models, it may seem a very high figure but it is not so much if we consider the high number of cores and high operating frequencies, since the 16-core model starts from the 3 , 5 GHz base speed up to 4 GHz in turbo mode.
The third model in dispute is the Ryzen Threadripper 1900X 8 cores and 16 threads , this has not confirmed neither the TDP nor the size of the cache so we will be attentive the next few days to see if their details are revealed.
