AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X (8-core/16-thread) Desktop Processor (YD190XA8AEWOF). Have the power of serious multi-processing with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X. The 1900X aims to operate processes such as rendering, streaming, compiling, encoding, work, play and etc all at the same time. 8 cores provide 16 threads of serious multi-processing power, while 20MB of combined cache and vast I/O from the enthusiast-grade AMD X399 platform stand ready to feed the beast.
“Zen” cores are designed to efficiently use available microarchitectural resources for optimal compute performance. Compared to the previous architecture, three-tier cache system and new pre-fetch algorithms enable dramatically higher throughput in the cache and execution engines. The "Zen” architecture delivers >52% improvement in instructions-per-clock cycle over the previous generation AMD core, while maintaining the power usage at the same level.
The YD190XA8AEWOF processor from AMD works on the TR4 platform. This 64-bit CPU has 8 cores operating at 3.8GHz with a Max Turbo Frequency of 4GHz. Advanced features of the 14 nm chip include 8 x 64KB Instruction L1 Cache, 8 x 512KB L2 cache, and 1 x 16MB L3 cache with simultaneous multithreading support. This processor does NOT come with a heatsink/cooler. You must purchase one separately that works with TR4 and can support a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 180 Watts.
