AMD’s 12-core Threadripper 1920X drops to a staggeringly cheap $200

By GIXnews


AMD’s Threadripper chips are monstrous high-end desktop processors, and today you can get one at a fantastic deal. An Amazon third-party retailer is selling the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X for $200. This processor usually sells for about $250, and it debuted at $800 in 2017. The seller doesn’t use Amazon for fulfillment, which means you’re relying on the seller’s return policy, not Amazon.

The Threadripper 1920X is a 12 core, 24 thread processor with a base clock of 3.5GHz and a boost clock of 4.0GHz. This first-gen Threadripper chip is getting a little long in the tooth a couple years after launch, and it won’t outperform something like the more recent 12-core Ryzen 3900X, for example. That chip retails for $500, however, and often more in reality as AMD struggles to meet demand.
