Threadripper ain't dead: 64C/128T monster coming Q4 2019

AMD's next-gen Ryzen Threadripper: 64C/128T monster on 7nm and Zen 2

I had some interesting conversations with multiple industry sources in the last couple of weeks across my two weeks at various shows (Computex, AMD Next Horizon Gaming, E3 2019, and something secret) but there were a few interesting things said about Ryzen Threadripper.

Threadripper ain't dead: 64C/128T monster coming Q4 2019 |

In previous rumors it seemed the fate of the next-gen Threadripper was looking bad, but these sources - and now WCCFTech as well, have confirmed that a new HEDT part is indeed in the works. My sources didn't talk about the chipset, but did confirm a next-gen Threadripper is indeed coming whereas WCCFTech has said the X599 chipset will launch with the third-gen Threadripper.

AMD's third-gen Ryzen Threadripper will roll out on the 7nm node powered by the new Zen 2 architecture, while rocking up to a huge 64 cores and 128 threads. This means we're looking at EPYC 'Rome' territory, so expect the price to be pretty epic, too.

WCCFTech is claiming somewhere between $2500 and $3000 which would make it an unbelievable processor for the price, and as they point out Intel is selling an 18-core processor for around $1800 which means a $2500-$3000 chip with 64C/128T would be an absolute game changer.

We'll report more as it happens, for now... we wait.
