AMD's Ryzen Threadripper chip is here!

The top model packs 16 cores and simultaneous multi-threading brings 32 threads of compute power.

The cores run at 3.4GHz, with a 4GHz boost.

That's a lot of compute power.

You'll need a new motherboard because the chip is huge.

It's much bigger than other consumer AMD and Intel processors.

It has a price to match: $999.

But that's a lot cheaper than comparable Intel CPUs.

Intel's top-of-the-line Core i9 won't be here until October.

So Threadripper is giving Intel some stiff competition.

And that’s great for hardcore PC users.
