Starting with the Threadripper 2920X, it has an MSRP of $650 which is considerably cheaper than the $800 the 1920X came in at. AMD’s offering 12 cores for the price Intel will give you 8, you get basically 3x the L3 cache and just over twice as many PCIe 3.0 lanes. There were just two tests where the 7820X beat the 2920X and that was single-thread Cinebench and PCMark 10. For everything else AMD’s new 12-core Threadripper part wiped the floor with the 7820X, it was basically a non-contest.
