Arctic Cooling hints at 64-core Threadripper CPUs with their Freezer 50 TR4 cooler

Arctic Cooling has officially launched their new Freezer 50 TR cooler, a CPU heatsink that was explicitly designed for AMD's Threadripper series of processors. 

The Arctic Cooling Freezer 50 TR is a dual-tower air cooler which features two fans and RGB elements, offering support for processors with TDPs of up to 250W and CPUs with "32 cores and more". That's right, Arctic Cooling is hinting at increased core/thread counts for AMD's Ryzen 3rd Generation Threadripper processors.    
 

    The ARCTIC Freezer 50 TR is a dual-tower CPU cooler with two P-series fans in push-pull configuration. It is an extremely powerful cooling solution for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU, capable of efficiently and quietly cooling CPUs of 32 cores and beyond. The Freezer 50 TR is also ARCTIC’s first CPU cooler equipped with fully addressable RGB, granting you totally customisable illumination and unique colour combinations for your PC.

 



Digging a little deeper, we can see that Arctic Cooling isn't just talking about 32+ core processors. Arctic Cooling's talking about full-on 64-core processors. Yes, Arctic Cooling could be talking about EPYC here, as TR4 supports the same coolers as EPYC's SP3 socket. Given the Freezer 50 TR's consumer-focus (as enterprise users don't tend to want RGB lighting), our guess is that Arctic Cooling is referring to future Threadripper series processors. 

While this isn't a confirmation that AMD plans to deliver 64-core Ryzen Threadripper processors with their 3rd Generation product stack, it seems clear that heatsink manufacturers are expecting increased core counts from AMD. This makes sense given Lisa Su's (AMD's CEO) public statements on the matter. Back in May, Lisa Su said that "If mainstream is moving up, then Threadripper will have to move up", referring to Ryzen 3rd Gen's increased core counts.
