AMD will release two new Ryzen Threadripper series CPUs, 2920X and 2970WX, on October 29th.
These 2nd generation Threadripper CPUs are catered towards users who are looking to save some bucks on the high-performance CPUs, but, who do not want to go all out with their wallet on the more advanced 16 or 32-core Threadripper models respectively.
With the price difference of several hundred dollars lower than the existing Threadripper CPUs, these new CPUs won’t sacrifice much regarding the processor cores and speed. This is especially true for 2970WX which is $ 450 cheaper than 2990WX.
