32 cores / 64 threads in one CPU

Having problems installing that new stick of memory? Found some great software or having issues with something? Or maybe want to chat about your PlayStation, X-Box, Nintendo, Sega, even your old Spectrum 48k....! Or maybe something you want to sell or acquire (computing related of course!). Let us know here...

32 cores / 64 threads in one CPU

Post by Woodles »

AMD have announced their new Threadripper 2 series https://www.anandtech.com/show/12906/am ... 99-refresh

Up to thirty two cores and sixty four threads in one package.

3 GHz base clock, 3.4GHz all core turbo.

64 on chip PCIe lanes.

250W TDP.

2018 Q3 release.

Estimated price $1700 - $2000.

Same socket as the Threadripper 1 (an easy upgrade then :D ) although some motherboards might not be able to handle the extra CPU power requirements when overclocked or very heavily loaded. Same air cooler.

Split into four on chip dies, two of which won't have direct access to off chip memory (needs an extra cache hop into one of the other dies that does have a direct connection), to be seen if that makes a difference, AMD thinks it won't for anything but very memory intensive applications.
