AMD Threadripper 2990X 32-core monster detailed in leak
Earlier today news dropped about AMD's upcoming 2nd Gen Threadripper processors, and things are looking good for AMD. If these leaks are true then the top SKU will be the 32-core 2990X followed by a 24-core 2970X and a 16-core 2950X. According to the leak, the 32-core 64-thread CPU will have a base clock of 3GHz with a boost up to 4GHz and XFR allowing up to 4.2GHz with a 250W TDP. We see 64MB of L3 cache as well as 16MB of L2.
The leak also mentioned that an unknown motherboard vendor said that AMD originally planned to launch the 16-core and 24-core variants, but is now considering nixing the 2950X.
The most tantalizing thing we see is the 6399 CINEBENCH score with the CPU overclocked. Supposedly overclocking the CPU was easy enough, but the fact that the 4.2GHz score is 300 points lower than the 4.1GHz score makes us think that the CPU was perhaps throttling under the H150i Pro they used. The overclock was achieved at 1.38v and resulted in a 4.12GHz OC on all cores.
