Comparatively, you will pay $700 more if you buy Intel Core i9-7960X than AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. This is a clear base line that AMD Ryzen stretched in competition with Intel in terms of hardware diversity and effective cheapness of CPUs.
However, the biggest question still remains unanswered; how far better AMD Ryzen Threadripper will perfrom against Intel Core i9? We will come to know about it once both rivals reveal officially their performance charts.
