Cheapest price I've seen this for by some way. I won't bother explaining what it is and why it's not expensive.

If you need a HEDT or prosumer/business oriented chip for your rig, this isn't a bad starting point.

Just be aware of your liability if you change your mind and needed to return it, postage with insurance isn't cheap. That being said, if it's faulty, Amazon will pay the return.

wont see Intels prices fall like that, might tell you something...

Yep, tells me intel are money grabbers, my next build will be AMD based, better value for money

This months Custom PC have a detailed ThreadRipper build using AMD. The equivalent chip from Intel is £1700.

3 out of 3 so far guys... Exceptional work.

Best CPU you will get at this price point. Fantastic bit of kit. Would love to have one in my PC for streaming/gaming/video encoding.

Yes it does.
Processors at this level have large profit margins and some companies are prepared to shave them to be more competitive.

intel has a 16 core and an 18 core consumer product. The worrying thing for intel will be future generations of threadrippers; as they will be able to scale to 32 plus cores ..

if you were making a 3d rendering farm, cpu and or gpu the 1950x is the right choice

Well, relative to its usage. You could easily make 20x return on this if you employ it for generating money professionally.

The Threadripper platform also has more PCIe lanes.

They were good value at the launch price of a grand so this is getting silly now.
Surprised to see a 25% price reduction so soon so I wonder if they aren't selling?

This isn't a formal price reduction, it's one country site of Amazon offering a temporary discount.

Yes, but there have been a lot of reductions on this chip in the US as well but not this low.

You're essentially saying if you have a great idea (not linked to the cpu) and manufacture it (only marginally connected the cpu as pretty much same can be done with an adequate one at a fifth of the price) and actually is successful (again the same came be achieved by a cheaper cpu)
It will do certain jobs faster. No doubt. But faster enough to justify 5 times a perfectl;y good enough cheaper model ?
So - what do you mean ? Printing counterfeit notes ?
Of course not. I think you mean specialist computer work, or frame rates in games.
Not so ?

No, not at me. I am married with kids. FAR more important stuff takes the money
I accept it's good for a deal, though.Never suggested it wasn't.
But inexpensive it certainly is NOT

It is inexpensive if you're otherwise staring down the barrel of choosing an Intel chip of the same specification, by a factor of 2!

It's expensive to you as you've no idea what the target market is. Compared to an i3 for checking your email on? Yes, it's expensive.

As a tool for the right job, this is not expensive. If you're not a tradesman then spending £400 on a drill would seem expensive, as likely a £30 drill from Argos would satisfy your requirements. This is rightly expensive to you as you have no use for it, for some one that does this is cheap. Hope that helps explain the perceived value of an item.
