AMD plans to release 64-core thread tearer processor this year

Foreign media WccfTech reported that AMD plans to release a 64-core Threadripper processor at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019. In addition, AMD will showcase other things at CES2020 in January next year.

The Threadripper is expected to use the 7nm process with the same socket as the X399. There have been reports that AMD will release the X599 motherboard to support the three generations of thread tearers, while the X399 motherboard will receive BIOS updates to support the new processor, but does not support PCIe4.0 and other functions.

In addition, due to AMD and Intel motherboard naming issues, the motherboard of the three generations of thread tearers may not be called "X599", but the source said it will still end with "99".

It is reported that not long ago, AMD's flagship thread tearer processor disappeared from the roadmap, and at the Taipei Computer Show conference, AMD released the Ruilong 3th generation processor without mentioning the thread tearer. Some netizens speculated that AMD might have cut the thread tearer. In this interview, AMDCEO Su Zifeng said in an interview with foreign media, "You will see more Threadripper."
