The second-gen Threadripper CPU will bring up to 32 cores and 64 threads, running on AMD’s 12nm Zen+ architecture for faster clock speeds.
“At Computex 2018 we demonstrated how the strongest CPU and GPU product portfolio in the industry gets even stronger in the coming months. Our upcoming 7nm and 12nm products build on the momentum of our Ryzen, Radeon, and EPYC processors, positioning AMD to lead the next generation of high-performance computing in markets from premium devices and gaming to machine learning and the datacenter,” said AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su in a press release.
Hard to argue with that, right?
The new 32-core Threadripper could be here as early as the third quarter, so if you want a PC upgrade, it’s time to save up.
Fortunately, AMD stated that the new CPU will be compatible with current X399 motherboards, so you won’t have to spend more for that. Until then, check out the video above for the full Computex 2018 Asus conference.
