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.

Am i missing something??
It says DIY builders will have access to the chips, what is the issue other than Ailenware sucks.

HP, ASUS, GIGA and rest will only have access to this at a later date.
we could probably still purchase one for DIY.
