It seems that the 16-core Ruilong 9 3950X is just AMD's “Appetizer”.
Foreign media heard from inside AMD,The 64-core, 128-threaded Ryzen ThreadRipper will be available in the fourth quarter of this year. As for the CES at the beginning of next year, AMD will share other new products.
In fact, in March of this year, AMD showed the client processor roadmap in an investment conference. The three generations of tearers were originally scheduled to be launched in the middle of the year, but unexpectedly removed in May, causing speculation.
The news proves that AMD has not given up the Ripper product line, but will not launch it as early as possible.
In addition, matching the three generations of tearers will be the X599 motherboard, continuing the TR4 interface. However, considering the potential naming conflict with the Intel Fever Platform (HEDT), AMD is considering a new model.
Since it is 64 cores, the price will definitely not be so cheap. The starting price is expected to be around $2,500~3,000. Although it is a lot of money for the AMD product line, the Intel 18 core (9980XE) costs $2,000. In contrast, it is not too conscience.
At the Taipei Computer Show, AMD CEO Su Zifeng also played a strong shot, we did not say to cancel the ThreadRipper product line. As long as the mainstream platform is upgraded, ThreadRipper will be upgraded further, and you will definitely see more.
