We talked about AMD Ryzen Threadripper and there were various leaks regarding the upcoming AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs that will be offering a bucket load of cores and threads. These were all leaks and rumors but now we have confirmation that such a thing exists and AMD has confirmed that AMD Ryzen Threadripper is the actual brand name and it not a code name.
It has been confirmed that these CPUs will come out under the AMD Threadripper or AMD Ryzen Threadripper branding. AMD also said that we will be able to learn more about these CPUs at the pre-Computex event on May 29th. These upcoming HEDT processors should be capable of taking on Intel and the products that Big Blue has to offer.
AMD has also confirmed that motherboard partners will be showcasing AMD Threadripper mothers at Computex 2017. AMD means serious business. We also know that we will be able to see AMD Vega gaming GPUs and AMD Vega custom GPUs at the event so it should be a treat for AMD fans.
It is not hard to see what AMD is trying to do here. First, AMD has made a splash in the mainstream CPU market with the AMD Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 CPUs and now AMD is going to compete with Intel for the workstation CPU market as well. AMD has a lead when it comes to price to core count in the mainstream market and the same could be the case for the workstation market as well.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper might seem like an odd name for a workstation CPU but then again it is what it is. We will have to see what these CPUs have to offer in the upcoming weeks. It will be interesting to see how these CPUs hold up as compared to the competition.
Let us know what you think about AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs.
