AMD ThreadRipper: 16C/32T coming at Computex in June

AMD is really kicking Intel in the shins with its Ryzen CPU family, teasing that it's next-gen ThreadRipper processor will be launching in Summer 2017 - and will be officially detailed at Computex.

ThreadRipper will feature up to 16C/32T of CPU performance, with AMD "targeting the world's fastest ultra-premium desktop systems in an all-new HEDT platform".

 

I reached out to Founder & Principal Analyst of Moor Insights & Strategy, Patrick Moorhead, where he told us: "AMD's Threadripper willl be unique in the market and could easily garner over $1,000. I don't expect Intel to follow tit for tat, thread to thread, but rather on other merits like single core performance".

 

I totally agree, especially with Patrick's comments for AMD hitting the $1000+ price point with ThreadRipper. It will push Intel to react, which is probably why we're hearing about Intel's upcoming Core i9 range with up to 12C/24T of performance at up to a blistering 4.5GHz with their purported Turbo Boost 3.0 technology. It's an exciting time to be a technology enthusiast, that's for sure.
