Ryzen Threadripper will release this summer

 
AMD has confirmed that their new Ryzen Threadripper will be releasing in summer 2017, coming with up to 16 CPU cores and 32 CPU threads. 


The company has also confirmed that all Threadripper CPU will come with quad channel memory support and a total of 64 PCIe lanes, which means that unlike Intel AMD will not be taking away PCIe lanes from lower end Threadripper SKUs.

This will allow Threadripper to be able to use up to four GPUs with full PCIe 3.0 16x bandwidth, something that is impossible on Intel's Skylake-X platforms, which maxes out at 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes.

AMD has also shown their upcoming Ryzen Threadripper CPU, which will come in a huge TR4 form factor for X399 chipset motherboards, with a size that easily dwarfs both Ryzen and Intel's Skylake-X offerings.

AMD has not released any firm specifications or pricing for Ryzen Threadripper, though this information is expected to be released soon as we approach the CPU's launch window.

That is one big CPU.Quote

Well Kaap can finally be happy. 64 PCIe lanes.

Still no release date though. AnnoyinglyQuote

Think someone has made a mistake and it should be 56 PCI-E lanes as Threadripper is basically 2 normal Ryzen CPUs together.

It would be nice if it does have 64 PCI-E lanes but I will still be looking at the 7980XE with 18/36 cores/threads and a higher clockspeed for my next PC.Quote

AMDs official slides say 64. So you can finally have 4 GPUS running x16
I think the multi threading performance on Ryzen will be better if not equal even with 4 less threads. But probably not for gaming. Not that any game would even notice those threads. Would be cool if they allow users to overclock specific cores to see if in a gaming situation, you can overclock half the cores at high clockspeeds but when you want raw power you just load a different BIOS profile. Doubt we will get this thoughQuote

Still think someone at AMD has made a mistake unless normal Ryzen is running 4 extra PCI-E lanes that no one knows about.

Edit just read elsewhere that Threadripper will have 48 PCI-E lanes dedicated to mGPU, the other 16 are for use elsewhere.


As to overclocking individual cores you can do that now with a decent motherboard, unfortunately this gives very little extra performance to the selected cores.Quote
