More information about the second-gen Ryzen Threadripper processors popped up online while I was on my holiday. It now looks like the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX will be the only chip that will be available on August 13th.

You can now pre-order this 32-core, 64-threaded flagship processor via Newegg for $1,799.99. The chip has a 3GHz base clock, 4.2GHz Turbo, and a 250W TDP. AMD accidentally posted Cinebench scores on its website, the Cinebench R15 multi-core test resulted in a score of 5099 points, but this information is now no longer listed on the AMD website.

We also have a photo of the retail packaging, which looks pretty premium.
