AMD Announces 32-core / 64-threads Ryzen Threadripper (12nm Zen+)

AMD Announces 32-core / 64-threads Ryzen Threadripper (12nm Zen+)

Threadripper 2 will be modeled on the second-generation Ryzen processor, based on 12nm, and the Zen+ architecture. Acer announced Ryzen-variants of their Predator Helios 500 notebook and Orion 5000 and Nitro 50 gaming desktops. The distinct absence of Vega graphics when ASUS showcased its X570ZD didn't go unnoticed, with the atmosphere turning decidedly frosty. The graphics card is built by PowerColor and it's only a tad slower than the RX Vega 56. Then AMD put together the first-generation Threadripper, a 16-core part for high-performance PCs, and Intel upped its game by offering 18 and now 28-core processors for top-end desktops.

You might have heard that Intel and AMD annnounced new computer processors (CPUs) with 28 and 32 cores, respectively, at the Computex even in Taipei.

Designer Kate Spade suffered depression for years, husband says
Saffo also released a statement where she wrote that Spade was a precious person and genuine in every way. The designer left a suicide note addressed to her 13-year-old daughter, telling her it was not her fault.


AMD has a new wave of X399 refresh motherboards coming to market now, but the Threadripper 2 processors are also backwards compatible with existing X399 motherboards. Unfortunately for the enthusiasts among us, AMD designed the Instinct cards to capture some of the exploding AI and machine learning applications in the data center, but Su assured the crowd that the company plans to bring the new process to consumer GPUs in the future.

Although made in somewhat a passing mention, AMD made it known that its 7nm Zen 2 silicon had made it to the labs. This is nice way of saying this might actually be better than 7nm, but we are not sure how GlobalFoundries and TSMC plan to call the new manufacturing process in 2020.

AMD officially announced its Radeon Instinct Vega 7nm graphics card during its Computex live stream in the early hours of this morning.

Going to 7nm allowed the company to double compute unit density, improve power efficiency by 2x and boost performance by 1.35x.

Private aviation company to sponsor Justify in Belmont race
Gronkowski is a 12-1 long shot, no doubt attractive odds for his part-owner Rob Gronkowski, the New England Patriots tight end. Hofburg, who is trained by the Hall of Famer Bill Mott, drew Post 4 and was made the second choice at 9-2.


KitGuru Says: There's a lot of big numbers thrown about during the announcements, but it's worth remembering that a lot of details are still missing and need to be tested in a real-world setting.
