At the time the Sunnyvale giant said its new high-performance processors would come through this summer. It did not give specific dates, but thanks to a new information we have known that the launch of AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper Processors would be planned for July 27, that is to say within a little more than a month.
But that first release would be limited to some specific models, which means that the complete catalog of AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper Processors will not be available until the third quarter of the year.
It’s meaningful information, as it follows the classic pattern we’ve seen in the CPU market over the past few years. In theory Sunnyvale’s firm should first launch two to four different models, among which would be the top-of-the-range solutions with 16 cores and 36 threads.
Subsequent would arrive the less powerful versions and also cheaper to complete a total of nine variants that we listed below:
16-core and 32-wire models:
- ThreadRipper 1998X: 3.5 / 3.9GHz, XFR, TDP 155W.
- ThreadRipper 1998: 3.2 / 3.6GHz, TDP 155W.
14-core and 28-wire models:
- 1977R ThreadRipper: 3.5 / 4GHz, XFR, TDP 155W.
- ThreadRipper 1977: 3.2 / 3.7 GHz, TDP 155W.
12-core and 24-wire models:
- 1976R Threader: 3.6 / 4GHz, XFR, TDP 125W.
- 1956X ThreadRipper: 3.2 / 3.8 GHz, XFR, TDP 125W.
- 1956: 3 / 3.7 GHz ThreadRipper, TDP 125W.
10-core and 20-wire models:
- 1955 ThreadRipper: 3.1 / 3.7 GHz, TDP 125W.
- 1955X ThreadRipper: 3.6 / 4GHz, TDP 125W.
Remember that this new generation of high performance AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper Processors will use socket and new chipset (X399). That platform will support four-channel DDR4 configurations, up to 64 PCI-E lines and promises to deliver excellent value for money.
