AMD announces high-end desktop chip Ryzen Threadripper
AMD’s Threadripper is going to be the first consumer-focused chip with a whopping 16 cores and 32 threads of computing power, and it will definitely boost the CPU war at the high end.
The high-end desktop chip has been triggering speculations for the last many weeks, but it was officially announced by Jim Anderson during the company’s financial analyst conference on Tuesday.
Anderson told analysts that the Ryzen Threadripper would target the desktop’s absolute ultra high-end performance.
The 32-thread new chip is expected to surpass Intel's 10-core Core i7-6950X chip in heavily multi-threaded as well as heavy multi-tasking chores.
Moor Insights’ principal analyst Patrick Moorhead said, “Both companies can push the core count as far as they keep adding value without taking away from the rest of the experience, things like power. 32 threads still add value to high quality video editing, transcoding and gaming while streaming and voice chat.”
Intel is reportedly preparing to release a Core i9 CPU at the upcoming Computex event. The top-end Core i9 chip will feature a dozen cores and Hyper-Threading, and will come paired with an innovative X299 chipset.
