We knew about the Threadripper 1900X back in July, but it did not arrive at the same time that the other two models did; AMD waited until today. The official specifications do not differ from the pre-launch specifications, though we have confirmation the TDP is 180W and the cache is 20MB. [H]ard|OCP describes it as a Ryzen 7 with the benefits of the X399 platform, a good way to quickly understand what this processor is. [H] posted the slideshow as well as positing some usage scenarios in their article, which you can see here.
"Today AMD rolls out what is not a very well kept secret, the Ryzen Threadripper model 1900X CPU. There is no doubt that Threadripper has already been a success for AMD, but how exactly does does an 8-core Threadripper fit into High End Desktop (HEDT) world of processors and platforms? The user profile is fairly skinny."
