During the press conference held by AMD at Computex on Monday, the company presented the new third-generation Ryzen CPUs, with up to 12 cores and 24 processing threads. From now on, we could go as far as a 16-core processor with 32 threads, so anyone could wonder if that will not affect the future arrival of more Threadripper chips. But as Lisa said its PCWorld, we can not rest assured that there is Threadripper for a while:
“It’s very interesting how these rumors circulate on the Internet I do not think we’ve said anything about Threadripper not going to continue. It’s an idea that somehow was born on the Internet on its own. “This has a clear explanation, anyway. A few weeks ago, as TomsHardware reported, AMD removed the third-generation Threadripper from its roadmap. However, now the company has wanted to make clear that it is happy with the market for high end equipment and work stations, and that its most powerful processors are still in their plans. Faced with the question of the consumer market cannibalizing the professional, Your added that “if consumer processors continue to grow, Threadripper will also grow.”
It is a very interesting balancing exercise. If we end up seeing a Ryzen 3000 of 16 cores and 32 threads, it would be easy to think of a Threadripper above the 32 cores and 64 threads, but this territory is already a thing of the company’s EPYC processors. At this rate the HEDT category will end up approaching that of the processors for servers. This is not a problem exclusive to AMD, eye, because Intel is planning to present its new Core-X to compete with AMD.
