AMD Demos Beastly 32-Core 2nd Gen Threadripper, 7nm Vega With 32GB HBM2

AMD looks to be setting a new bar for itself, announcing a 32-core second-gen Threadripper CPU and more during their press conference at this year's Computex.

On Monday, Intel, the dominant CPU maker in the worlds of desktop and server systems, touted an upcoming 28-core Core X-series aimed at workstations, gamers, and other high-end desktop gear. The same applies to AMD's 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, which could perhaps be the firm's biggest announcement this week. The new CPUs will feature either 24 or 32 cores, with two threads per core, for a total of 48 or 64 threads.

At Computex in a press-conference AMD just announced Ryzen Threadripper Gen2, much like Ryzen 2000 based on 12nm Zen+ architecture. Surprising the crowd considering its miniature size, PowerColor's RX Vega 56 Nano could still handle titles at 4K resolution using AMD's FreeSync.

Kate Spade's Husband Reportedly Wanted A Divorce, Sending Her Into Depression
Over the years, Brosnahan and Spade appeared together on red carpets and other events as the actress' star rose. The body of fashion designer Kate Spade is removed from her Park Avenue apartment Tuesday, June 5, 2018 in NY .

In an interview with Engadget, AMD's Jim Anderson said - "When we were bringing out 16-core, we already had on the drawing board, the 32-core, That's one of the reasons it can drop into the same TR4 socket, is because upfront we had that in mind". Due to this, several motherboard vendors reported that some of the current X399 motherboards on the market might struggle with power delivery to the new parts, and so we are likely to see a motherboard refresh. AMD also demoed the GPU running Cinema 4D to show that it has working silicon as it preps for launch, which it somewhat vaguely pegged for 2H 2018. However, not all processes are sensitive to these latencies and AMD has improved Infinity Fabric in the Zen+ design, so perhaps the hit will not be as significant as one might think. Many of these products were new systems coming from various OEM partners, such as Acer and the Predator Helios 500 gaming laptop announced last week and products from ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Huawei.

The power-packed Ryzen Threadripper 2nd generation processor will pack four 8-core Ryzen APUs and will have the TDp of 250W.

On Tuesday, AMD unveiled the first 7-nanometer graphics processing unit, the Radeon Vega GPU, set for launch later this year. Whilst providing 35 percent more performance on a smaller package, the Radeon Instinct will be able to support up to 32GB of HBM2 video RAM.
