Not long after Intel unveiled a 5GHz 28 Core special edition processor Computex 2018, AMD is ready to take on the competition with their second generation Threadripper processor having 32 Cores and 64 processing threads.
The power-packed Ryzen Threadripper 2nd generation processor will pack four 8-core Ryzen APUs and will have the TDp of 250W. Moreover, it can be fitted in the same TR4 socket making the transition easier for users.
AMD’s previous Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has 16-cores and 32 processing threads. The doubled cores and processing threads will make the processor a beast and highly efficient in rendering, post-production and encoding workloads.
AMD has said that the latest series of Threadripper will be based on 12nm Zen+ architecture.
No official release date has been announced for the Ryzen Threadripper 2nd Generation processor, but AMD has said that it will be available in the market from the third quarter of 2018.
An official press release was later added by AMD on their official website including the OEM partners that will make use of the Threadripper processor with 32-cores and 64 processing threads.
With this, AMD has topped Intel which shocked the world with their 5GHz, 28-core processor recently.
