More info has leaked about AMD's X399 16-core Ryzen CPU

 
A few days ago we spoke about some rumours on a new high-end Ryzen CPU socket, which was said to support up to 16 cores and 32 threads with quad-channel DDR4 memory, creating a true competitor to Intel's X99 platform. 
 
Now Canard PC Hardware has released some additional information on this platform, stating that it is planned for a release in 4/6 months and that AMD's current samples have TDPs of 150W. Canard also lists AMD's 16-core 32-thread flagship as having base/boost clock speeds of 2.4 and 2.8GHz, which is very high for a CPU with such large high core count.   
 
This new platform is said to be coming with an X399 socket and an LGA CPU, bridging the gap between traditional desktop CPUs and server platforms. These new CPUs will also come as dual-chip multi-chip modules (MCM), which means that this chip is made using two CPU dies rather than a single, larger die.

When compared to other AMD Zen platforms, this new CPU socket will offer quad-channel memory support and CPUs with up to 16-cores, half of Naples' maximum of 32 cores and 8 channel memory and double that of AMD's Ryzen 1800X which supports up to 8-cores and dual-channel memory. 

With a TDP of 150W, it is unsurprising that this chip does not have clock speeds that are as high as AMD's 1800X, though it is likely that this platform will support overclocking if it is marketed towards consumers.

Imagine if this was put at the same price as the 6900K. It would absolutely destroy it at that price range at everything except gaming. But who the hell pays $1000 for a CPU to game on?Quote

Who buys a 16-core for gaming? This is for rendering, plain and simple. Need lots of cores? This CPU should do the trick.Quote

That's what I mean. It's going to destroy the 6900k in everything but gaming, but who buys either of these for gamingQuote

i haved forget about AMD But NOWS it's look to be a great competiitor for music studio 16 cores it's like a xeon no? hope so wait for a better comparaison
and the cache memory will be?Quote
