In a few days, the CES 2020 show, AMD and Intel are certain that there is a major event at this exhibition, Intel side should be able to launch the tenth generation OfCore desktop Version Comet Lake-S processor, and AMD side can be sure that there will be 7nm Ryzen APU, But it’s also possible to release the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor directly.
AMD has announced the focus of this CES, CEO Su Zifeng will promote high-performance computing as the theme of speech, the key is on this high-performance computing, because 7nm Ryzen APU is important, but the mobile field is not much of high-performance computing.
Can meet the high-performance computing this level also have to find from the high-end processor, so there is analysis that AMD this CES exhibition will also officially launch the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor, is the end of November officially announced the 64 core 128 threadHE DT platform new flagship.
At present, the published specifications are very limited, only know the second-level cache 32MB (512KB per core), the third-level cache 256MB, a total of 288MB, thermal design power consumption is maintained at 280W, see how high the frequency can be, I believe the reference frequency will be slightly lower, the acceleration frequency is also expected to achieve about 4.5GHz.
But AMD confirms that the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X will be released in 2020, considering that this year there will be a Zen3 processor with a 7nm-EUV process, and if the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is released too late, it’s better to take advantage of the opportunity to release it. It also increases exposure.
Of course, if the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X can be released, the 48-core 96 thread of the Ryzen Threadripper 3980X is expected to appear together, after all, the 64-core killer was released, the second flagship hides no point.
