AMD's new Ryzen CPUs might not arrive in 6-core version

AMD Ryzen might not launch with a 6-core model, and that's OK

The world is excited for AMD's next-gen Ryzen processors, but now there are fresh rumors that the company will only be launching 4- and 8-core versions, without a 6-core version released.




Zolkorn and PCGamesHardware have reported that AMD won't launch a 6-core Ryzen CPU, as the company will launch an 8-core model, and a 4-core model - with, and without ThreadRipper (which should be the name for AMD's HyperThreading competitor).


The new rumors tease that we could expect many different models, with 4/8-core options, SMT functionality, TDP adjustments, and more. We should expect more details on Ryzen CPUs next month.
