AMD: will not launch 16 core 32-thread sharp dragon threadriver processor

With the official launch of the Reebok 9 3950x processor and the Reebok threadriver 3960x / 3970x processor last week, AMD's layout in the high-end CPU market has become more and more complete, covering the 16 core, 24 core and 32 core markets. Of course, 48 core and 64 core processors are not secret for a long time, but they are not yet there.

Although the name of the sharp dragon 3000 series is the same as that of the sharp dragon tr 3000 series, they are not a platform in fact. The sharp dragon 9 3950x and below are all AM4 platforms, supporting dual channel memory, while the sharp dragon tr 3960x and above are tr40 platforms, supporting four channel memory.


So will there be another 16 core 32 thread processor in the four channel platform's sharp dragon tr Processor? For this,In an interview, rob Hallock, senior director of AMD technology market, denied that there will be no more 16 core processors on tr40 platform, which means that the starting point is 24 cores, which has opened a gap with AM4 platform

What is the significance of this question? Don't forget the first generation of the sharp dragon tr processor. In 2017, although there was an 8-core 16 thread sharp dragon 71800x, amd also launched an 8-core 16 thread sharp dragon tr 1900x on the sharp dragon TR, which costs 549 US dollars.

Although this shows that it reduces the cost of the Reebok tr platform, don't forget that the main board of the x399 platform is generally very expensive. The players who can get to this platform will obviously not buy the 8-core Reebok TR, while others have more affordable options for Reebok 7, and they will not choose this wonderful product anyway.

This kind of mistake is not only made by AMD, but also by Intel. Don't forget that in 2017, Intel also launched core i7-7740x, a 4-core 8-thread processor, which also supports hedt's feverish lga2066 platform. It's needless to say.
