AMD lit up the consumer CPU market with the Ryzen 7 1800X, offering 8T/16C of performance for only $499 - and now, there's a new 12C/24T processor being teased. This new 12C/24T chip will probably end up competing against the newly-rumored X390/X399 chipset for the higher-end Ryzen CPUs.

The new Ryzen 12C/24T processor was spotted inside of the Alienware Area 51-R3, and for comparison sake the Area 51-R2 features Intel's Core i7-6800/6850K. This isn't the server CPU processor, but it does sport a new socket - and a 3.2GHz Turbo clock, not bad for a 24-threaded CPU.
