AMD have revealed more details about Threadripper, with coverage on PC World, PC Perspective and HotHardware. We already know a lot of about Threadripper, AMDís answer to the X299/X99 high-end desktop platforms from Intel, including that they would be coming this summer, have up to 16-cores and 32-threads of compute, and that they would all include 64 lanes of PCI Express 3.0 for a massive amount of connectivity for the prosumer. Now we know that there will be two models launching and available in early August: the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X and the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X.

It's a Microsoft blog so seems to be legit.
