Ryzen Threadripper 2
The CPU type indicates the CPU models set by the manufacturer based upon their capacity and the application features. For Intel CPUs these are starting from most powerful - Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, Pentium Dual Core and Celeron models.

The manufacturer of processors AMD has introduced the numbering system which permits to accurately identify each processor manufactured by AMD and its compatibility with the motherboards. Prior to buying the processor you should verify the support provided by the processor with the relevant number at the website of the manufacturer of the motherboard.
This parameter determines the CPU socket on the mother board for which the particular CPU is intended. Physically the CPU can be placed in the compliant socket only. Prior to buying the CPU you should verify that your motherboard has the corresponding CPU socket.

The number of the CPU cores is the parameter of the operation speed and stability. CPU with two or more cores can handle tasks in parallel, thus achieving extra high-speed and the system stability. Prior to buying a multi-core CPU you should verify if the motherboard supports this type of CPU.
The CPU clock frequency is the index of operation speed that determines the number of calculation cycles that the CPU can perform per second. Higher clock frequency means higher operation speed.
: 4.20 GHz
L2 cache or the second level memory is second as to high-speed operation.
L2 memory capacity starts from 128 Kb up to 1-2 Mb.

A cooler is an important component and without it the computer CPU will overheat within a couple of minutes after switching on. A high quality cooler provides a silent and stable operation of the computer as well as a long CPU lifetime.
This option shows if a compliant cooler is included with the CPU or you will receive the CPU only and will have to buy a separate cooler.
