AMD 16-core / 32-thread ThreadRipper processor coming to desktop late this summer

 AMD’s COMPUTEX 2017 press conference didn’t turn out to be all that we’d hoped out to be but we now have tentative dates for the launch of the upcoming Ryzen 9 ThreadRipper processors which will ship with the new X399 platform. An exact date of price wasn’t disclosed at the press conference but we were told that ‘late this summer’, we should have the official launch of the ThreadRipper processors.

AMD ThreadRipper specifications and pricing

As we approach the launch day, we’ll have more details but this is what we know so far. The flagship AMD ThreadRipper will have 16-core and 32-threads. Each and every ThreadRipper CPU will have 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes. Again, each and every ThreadRipper CPU will have support for quad-channel memory and you’ll need a motherboard with the new X399 chipset to run them. The pricing details were not revealed but we expect AMD to price the SKUs below what Intel revealed yesterday with their Core X-series of processors. Of which the flagship 7980XE will have 18-cores and 36-threads. For all we know, by the time AMD launches ThreadRipper officially, they probably might turn up with a ThreadRipper that has more cores than 16 or 18.
