Microcenter has the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x on sale for 629.99. In store pickup only. Save $30 when bundled with specific motherboards.

Threadripper 2 will be announced this fall, so it's expected to see price drops like this. Fantastic deal, but consider that Threadripper 2 will have a high end of 32 core / 64 threads.

The only thing AMD is ripping is a new hole in Intel's beehind. Thumbs up.

I have done a little bit of reading into this while looking to replace my OC'ed i5 2500k and here is what i took from my research:

The Ryzen performs better for multi core applications and games at 4k. It has more cores and is fairly priced. Not much room for overclocking, but not really needed.

Intel 8700K has less cores but slightly faster clock speed. It has room for overclocking but requires an after market CPU cooler. It perform slightly better on 1080p gaming and single core applications. More and more applications are utilizing multiple cores, so Ryzen will be more future proof most likely.

For gaming most of the heavy lifting is on the video card, so get a good one of those and either will be great. Since the Ryzen is cheaper and more future proof, it seems the better pick.

I'm sure that comment was comparing i7 with ryzen 7... this one here is doubling the the amount of cores of ryzen 7, so I think that comment shouldn't apply here for most part. Except maybe the single core performance.

If you bought from MC, they will price adjust/refund the difference just by bringing in your receipt.

maybe i am crazy or something, but wasn't MC always had that processor for this price?

that been said, wait for TR2 is your best bet. the 16 core TR2 is probably going to be around this price anyways. the current TR1 are expensive due to extremely low yield (every TR1 has 4 cpu modules total of 32 cores, 1950x just happen to have 50% of good cores)

Not as good, yet. High clocks single core still wins in gaming....although this is slowly changing. Still a great gaming could, almost all the ryzens are. The i7 is just better at it, but nowhere near it in almost every other way
