At Computex 2018 AMD unveiled their plan of releasing the first 32-core processor just after Intel announced to be bringing a 28-core CPU in the market later this year. AMD will call this beast as AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X. We just got the fisrt leaked benchmarks and the very first performance results. AMD plans to launch several other models later this year including this phenomenol 32-core, 64 threads CPU based on a 12nm process. It is expected that launch will be held at Q3 2018.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X CPU-Z Screenshots:
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X will fit on your current X399 motherboard with SP3 socket. Having 8-core 12nm Pinnacle Ridge dies bring the luxury of Precision Boost II and XFR 2.0 on the go. According to the CPU-Z leaked screenshots, the CPU will be a 32-core, 64 threads having B2 stepping, 3MB L1 Cache, 16MB L2 Cache, and 64MB L3 Cache. You can see in the Screenshots that it will be having a base clock of 3.4 GHz that can be overrclocked upto 4GHz. The CPU has this overclock speed even when AMD leaped forward in league of cores by using twice as many cores as their previous CPU, quite impressive.
AMD used a liquid cooler “Corsair H150i Pro AIO” to gain some more overclocking speed with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X. The goal was to acheive 4.2 GHz clock speed on all cores but they failed as performance dropped below 4GHz on all 32 cores and power protection kicked in the process. However it was successfully over clocked up to 4.12 GHz on all the 32-cores. The chip scored an impressive 6399 points on Cinebench numbers. For such overclock speeds having so many cores, AMD is coming with new coolers for the upcoming 2nd generation Ryzen processors.
AMD has already told that you can simply add the new 2nd generation Ryzen chips on yout X399 motherboards without having any trouble. So the processor running at a TDP of 250W won’t be a problem. This is all from our side. For more news, rumors keep visiting our website.
