Hardware info, tips & tricks / Threadripper will be Dell exclusive

Dell has tied up AMD's 16-core Threadripper CPU until the end of the year.


Apparently, Dell’s Alienware brand will get the chip to play with for a while. As we wrote earlier, the outfit unveiled an updated version of its flagship Area 51 gaming PC, which will ship with a choice of AMD's Ryzen Threadripper chips or Intel's new Core X-series processors.


The built-to-order Threadripper-powered PC will be available from the end of July, while the Intel Core X variant will launch later in the year.


Apparently, the embargo only applies to Alienware's big-name PC rivals, such as HP and Lenovo, however, smaller outfits will be able to build Threadripper systems.


DIY PC builders will have access to AMD's 16-core, 32-thread chips this year noting that "smaller boutique gaming PC vendors", including the likes of Origin PC, Maingear, iBuypower and Cyberpower.


AMD said that it had interest from all its OEM partners and Ryzen opportunities have been strong, as was showcased at Computex Taipei this year.


"Building on that momentum, we are incredibly excited that Alienware is our lead Ryzen Threadripper OEM partner, with its leadership OEM position in the HEDT market. We look forward to showcasing the full potential of our Ryzen Threadripper CPU and TR4 platform through our Alienware partnership, as well as our partnership with other key HEDT component DIY hardware partners,” and AMD spokesperson said.

• 4, 6, 8 and 10-core parts available for pre-order from June 19th
• 4, 6, 8 and 10-core parts shipping to consumers from June 26th
• 12-core parts expected to ship in August
• 14, 16 and 18-core parts expected to ship in October


The two quad-core parts are part of the Kaby Lake-X family, essentially using the mainstream Kaby Lake-S silicon but disabling the integrated graphics and expanding the voltage/frequency window and TDP limit to give extra frequency. As already demonstrated, extreme overclockers have hit over 7.5 GHz on these chips at a special Computex Intel event using Liquid Helium, with positive words coming out about 24/7 overclocking capabilities on air and water.

The other three parts are the Skylake-X family, with the 6, 8 and 10-core variants all coming from the same harvested low-core-count die. The big upswing for these processors is the rearranged cache arrangement, with Intel moving from 256KB of L2 cache on the previous generation to 1MB of L2 cache on Skylake-X (and changing the L3 cache from being a fully inclusive cache to being a non-inclusive cache). This significantly enhances software which is L2 cache size sensitive, although it remains to be seen how much of an effect it will have for consumers.

For the other parts, 12 core and up, Intel is staggering their launch to the extent that we do not even know many of the details. Intel's own documents list them all as TBD for frequency, power and DRAM support – the only certainties are core counts, pricing, and the fact that they will use the same socket as the above five processors. The August shipping date for the 12-core will be interesting, given that Dell has announced that pre-orders for its ThreadRipper Alienware desktops start on July 27th. The same announcement from Dell states 'and the Area 51 featuring Intel Core X-Series will arrive on August 22nd, and the product page states that this includes the 12-core option, as well as 6-10 cores. Whether the wording 'arrive' means pre-order or release we do not know, although the TR version explicitly states 'pre-order'. Ryan points out that this could just mean the 6-10 core options, as it doesn't explicitly state the 12 core and Intel hasn't made a firm date themselves yet.

Daniel made a great work again, the modifications he made are both efficient and elegant. Thanks a lot.


As usual, I will wait for some time before making the new optimized application 'official'. This will probably happen at the end of May (I'll be quite busy until then).
