AMD has promised to release their next-generation Threadripper processors this month, bringing the lineup into the Ryzen 3rd Generation/Zen 2 fold. 

With this will come a staggering generational improvement, thanks to Zen 2's heightened efficiency, IPC boost and AMD's new multi-chip design. How do we know this? We have seen this happen with AMD's EPYC second-generation products, and Threadripper is basically a scaled-down EPYC.   

Gigabyte's Aorus sub-brand has started teasing a new Threadripper motherboard, complete with what appears to be four PCIe 16x lanes, a whopping eight SATA ports and a quad-channel memory configuration that supports two DIMMs per channel. The CPU side of this motherboard requires twin 8-pin CPU/EPS connections and has a 6-pin PCIe power connector at the base of the motherboard for supplementary PCIe power. 

Like other leaked next-generation Threadripper motherboards, which are said to be called TRX40 motherboards (see ASRock TRX40 Taichi leak here), we can see that Gigabyte has given their latest Threadripper motherboard a huge VRM heatsink, which points towards high TDP processors.

Looking at this motherboard, we can see that the chipset heatsink contains a vent, suggesting that there is a fan underneath it. This suggests that this motherboard isn't using an X399 chipset. This is a clear sign of a new chipset and PCIe 4.0 support, giving this board a passing similarity to AMD's PCIe 4.0 compliant X570 series motherboards.

AMD is expected to reveal its next-generation Threadripper series processors soon.

Looks like an X399 version of the Aorus Xtreme which looks great; but for god sake why make "Gamer" motherboards for what is clearly a workstation/professional platform?Quote

I hope the reveal will be tomorrow after 9am Eastern Daylight Time. The 7th for 7nm Threadripper. Sounds logical.Quote

Because gamers with more money than sense is an important segment for HEDT.Quote

Or professional users wanting something serious without spending £15k.

HEDT has given people who want workstations a much cheaper option.Quote

Yes, that is the more sensible group. Doesn't change the fact that quite a few buy them for gaming since they want "the best".Quote
