AMD's next-gen 'Starship' CPU features 96 threads

AMD's next-gen server CPU dubbed 'Starship', rocks 48 CPU cores, 96 threads in total

AMD has been making strides in its CPU division, but the next big leap looks like it'll come from something called 'Starship'. What is Starship? According to our friends at Fudzilla, Starship rocks 48 physical CPU cores, and 96 threads in total - yeah, it's a beast.




Starship is a concept project right now, with AMD looking to land the CPU sometime in 2018 or beyond. AMD will tap the 7nm process, skipping the 10nm node for Starship, using GlobalFoundries as their semiconductor manufacturer.


Fudzilla reports - and yes we know, this report is from June - that AMD's next-gen Starship will arrive in TDPs of 35W and 180W, so we're sure the 180W part will be the 96-threaded beast.


Why it matters: AMD is getting into the headlines for all the right reasons, and a 96-threaded server CPU is something I want to see. Now I want to get my hands-on some server-grade hardware to prepare to salivate all over Starship and its 96-threaded CPU goodness.
