Computex 2017 - AMD is preparing to blow everyone's minds at Computex 2017 with its reveal and detailing on its next-gen HEDT processors and X399 platform, led by the upcoming ThreadRipper 1998X processor.




AMD's upcoming ThreadRipper 1998X will rock 16C/32T of CPU performance, with a base clock of 3.5GHz and boost clock of 3.9GHz. There's a 155W TDP, quad-channel DDR4 support, and 44 PCIe lanes on every single ThreadRipper processor.


ThreadRipper 1998X is pretty much a double dose of Ryzen 7 1800X (8C/16T x 2 = 16C/32T), while there will be other ThreadRipper CPUs down to 10C/20T, 12C/24T, 14C/28T, right up to the beastly 16C/32T offerings.
