AMD will release its second generation Threadripper CPU in Q3 2018, featuring up to 32 CPU cores

At Computex 2018, AMD revealed that its second generation Threadripper CPU will release in Q3 2018. AMD showcased two models: one featuring 24 CPU cores and 48 threads and another featuring 32 CPU cores and 64 threads. Similarly to Intel’s 28-core CPU, this new Threadripper does not target PC gamers.

As the official press release reads:

“AMD provided a first look at the performance of upcoming 7nm AMD Radeon Vega GPU products slated for launch in 2018, 12nm 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors with up to 32 cores slated for launch in Q3 2018, and unprecedented customer adoption of Ryzen and Radeon products in premium OEM devices.”

In related news, AMD also showcased the first public demonstration of its Radeon Vega GPU based on 7nm process technology built specifically for professional/datacenter applications. AMD announced that 7nm Radeon “Vega” architecture-based Radeon Instinct has started sampling to initial customers and will launch in both server and workstation form factors for key compute use cases in 2H 2018.
