AMD's latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950WX CPU has landed at PB Tech!

Having just done the rounds with reviewers around the world the ThreadRipper 2950X has already been receiving some pretty solid recommendations - well, at least for those who are in the market for a $1500+ CPU!

“Overall, the Threadripper 2950X is the winner of the bunch. This powerful processor handles well in a diverse number of applications, and Intel's comparable Core i9-7960X weighs in at nearly twice the price.” – Tom’s Hardware (U.S.)

“It (the 2950X) is the best all-around processor that you could buy in sort of the HEDT, high-end space and it’s cheaper. It’s an absolute no-brainer at this point.” – PC Perspective (U.S.)

"It's plenty capable as a gaming CPU too, so if you're a power user who plays as hard as they work, you could do a lot worse than invest in a Threadripper 2950X and it wins our OC3D Enthusiast Award." - OC3D


- 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors work with X399 series motherboards, like the latest Gigabyte AORUS X399 AORUS XTREME (older X399 will still work, but require a BIOS update)

- The 2950X does not include a CPU Cooler, but there are some special TR4 CPU Water Cooling Kits available now with large contact plates specifically designed for the giant CPU.

The AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 2950X is definitely an incredible processor for editors and content creators, and we've created a Custom ThreadRipper PC Builder if you want to have a play with the this or more expensive 2990WX

If you just want it now, you can order your 2950X CPU at PB Tech today!
