AMD second generation Ryzen ThreadripperprocessorThere are four models with 32, 24, 16 and 12 cores. Specifications are shown in the table below. The top 32 Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX was pre-sold for $13999, while the 16-core Threadripper 2950X will be on sale on August 31. The remaining two will be in October.
This is the layout of the HDT platform in 2018, and the next step is the third generation of Threadripper processors, the Threadripper 3000 series, in 2019. The code name is Castle Peak, and AMD aims to dominate the HEDT fever market.
Castle Peak processors will create new records in both performance and energy efficiency, and the TR4 platform will bring new platform features, but AMD's internal training material does not mention specific specifications.
Undoubtedly, the third generation Threadripper processors will use the 7Nm process and the Zen 2 architecture, which we don't know much about now, but AMD mentioned earlier that the Zen 2 architecture will have a multidimensional improvement over the Zen architecture.
As for the specific architecture, there have been rumors that AMD will integrate more cores on a 7Nm processor. There are rumors that the desktop AM4 platform will have 12 cores and 16 cores. So the third generation Threadripper platform is likely to upgrade to 64 cores and 128 threads. This is a crazy idea, but it is not impossible. AMD's EPYC processing The device is now up to 32 cores and will be upgraded next year. It may be upgraded to 64 cores with the help of 7Nm process to further increase the pair.IntelThe pressure will also benefit from the Threadripper platform.
