AMD is aggressive when it comes to fighting against Intel this year. With its Ryzen chips, it successfully relaunched itself as one of the biggest chip makers in the industry. AMD has been known as the cheap alternative, but with its Ryzen architecture, it rebranded itself as the powerhouse with a greater value per dollar. And as the red flag tried to seize the throne from the blue flag, AMD will try to counter every product Intel will produce, including Intel's Core i9 chips.

When is Threadripper coming out?

As a competitive move, AMD will release the Threadripper at an earlier date than Intel's Core i9. This is the company's strategy to penetrate the area of high-end desktop computing market or HEDT, which was Intel's turf.

Threadripper is announced to be released early this summer, but it was formerly not dated. Though according to PCGamesN, the behemoth will be released in the wild on #August 10. Pre-ordering is already available.

As a refresher, there will be two Threadrippers.The 16-core Threadripper 1950X will be priced the same with Intel's 10-core i9 7900X at $999. With the same price, 1950X has 6 more cores than the i9 7900X.

#Amd Ryzen Threadripper 1950X's younger brother is the Threadripper 1920X. This chip will be available for $799. But even with being $200 cheaper, it still has more core than the i9 7900X. Both chips will support 64 PCI-E lanes and will support DDR4 RAM up to a massive amount of 1TB.

When packaging gets crazy

The chip is expected to be a gigantic slice of silicon, and because of this, the packaging will be a lot bigger than the ordinary.

AMD has posted in their Instagram account a picture of what will be the look of the chip in its packaging. Kinda looks like a $999 speaker, if you fancy a little imagination. PCGamesN described the packaging in a sillier way by " Palantir with the Eye of Sauron staring deep into your soul…".

The perfect customers for Threadripper

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper seems like a promising chip to have if you want a lag-less experience. Though it is an impressive chip, it is not for everyone. If you're a dedicated Gamer, this chip is not for you. There is cheaper alternative for this chip and packs just enough power to run games flawlessly. The Ryzen 3 chip is an anticipated product of AMD as well, and it might be better if you keep your radar for it.
