We have the first official image of AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper Processors, a new generation of processors that as we know is characterized by configurations of up to 16 cores and 32 threads, although we must not forget the value offered by the platform behind it, since it uses a new socket and new chipset.
As you can see in the image the AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper processors are very large. This is due to the internal structure that has used Sunnyvale signature, since we find a total of four CCX (two in each half) with four cores each.
These four CCX units are integrated in the same package, but if you notice it well it is noticed that there is a small external separation that marks a slight differentiation. You can also see without problems that AMD has used the LGA system to connect the processors to the motherboard instead of the PGA.
The first uses an array of gold-plated contacts and not the classic pins. This makes manufacturing more expensive but improves the quality and strength of the processor.
AMD’s ThreadRipper architecture is based on RYZEN, which means that we have the same IPC and the same performance per core and MHz, although using the socket LGA4094 and the chipset X399 offers a number of important improvements, among which we can highlight the support of configurations of DDR4 memory in quadruple channel and up to 64 lines PCI-E.
It is expected that this new generation AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper Processors will begin to reach the market in late July in 10-core and 20-wire versions, 12 cores and 24 threads, 14 cores and 28 threads and 16 cores and 36 threads.
