High-end CPU of 16 cores / 32 threads "AMD Ryzen Threadripper" Conclusion, Can you overthrow Intel's high-end CPU?

AMD's Ryzen series, which is depriving Intel's mainstream CPU for high performance and low price, aims for a new high-end desktop PC high price range "Ryzen Threadripper"Will soon appear. By having 16 cores / 32 threads that doubles the core of the current Ryzen 7 series, we can summarize what we know at the moment about Ryzen Threadripper, which is just "high end Ryzen".

AMD Readies Nine Ryzen Threadripper Models | techPowerUp

For the first time, AMD is a CPU for the high-end desktop PC "Ryzen Threadripper" together with CPU "EPYC" for server which was known as codename Naples (Naples) at investor meeting 2017 Financial Analyst Day held in May 2017 "We have prepared it. Ryzen Threadripper adopts the same mechanism as EPYC for servers such as connecting CPU core with a new interconnect called Infinity Fabric, and it is announced that 16 core / 32 thread model exists, and Ryzen of 8 cores / 16 threads It was announced that it will appear as a model higher than 7. The competing model of Intel's high-end CPU was not Ryzen 7 but Ryzen Threadripper.

In response to this announcement, the top model of Skayleke-X which Intel originally planned to release in 10 cores / 20 threads was hastily upgraded to 18 cores / 36 threads, and on 30th May 2017 COMPUTEX Intel announced that TAIPEI 2017 will make it appear as "Core i 9" brand. However, because it was a sudden change in policy, details on the top 18 core model will not be revealed, Intel's preliminary release from the previously scheduled 10 cores / 20 threads or less models The lack of preparation was revealed.

And the next day that Intel announced, AMD officially announced "Ryzen Threadripper" with the same COMPUTEX. An announcement on Ryzen Threadripper can be confirmed after 42 minutes of the following movie.

In addition to prior information that there are models of 16 cores / 32 threads, Ryzen Threadripper is also capable of PCI-Express 3.0 exceeding 64 lanes and 44 lanes of Intel's Core-X series, and DDR 4 memory is quad-channel capable It was announced that a new platform based on the X399 chipset was adopted, and it was announced that it was released in the summer of 2017 as usual.

Like EPYC a huge Ryzen Threadripper.

It was also revealed that the X399 motherboard will come out from the four major manufacturers of ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, ASRock.

Also from Dell as a high-end desktop PC "ALIENWARE Area - 51 Threadripper EditionHas been announced. It is announced that it will be released on 27th July 2017.

AMD has not disclosed information beyond what was announced at COMPUTEX for Ryzen Threadripper, but various leak information such as SKU, release time, results of benchmark test etc. are raised.

First of all, regarding SKUTechPowerUpAccording to the report that there are 9 models below. There are two types of 16-core, 14-core, 10-core models and 3 types of 12-core models. Since Ryzen Threadripper has two CPU dies (four CCXs), it is worrisome how the number of cores of CCX is combined in the 14 core model and 10 core model,TechPowerUpIs 3 + 2 + 3 + 2 for the 10 core model, 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 for the 12 core model, 4 + 3 + 4 + 3 for the 14 core model, and 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 for the 16 core model.

The high-end model 1950X has 16 cores / 32 threads, frequency 3.4 GHz, TDP 155 W expected spec. For 1950X, the engineering sample Geekbench score also leaks, with single coreus 4074, multicore 26768. According to Wccftech, the average score of "Core i9 7900 X" which is the high end model of Intel at the present time is that the single core is 5000 to 5300 and the multicore is 32000 to 34000. It seems that attention will be gathered as to how much the score of 1950X will be improved by optimization.

The release date of Ryzen Threadripper which AMD made "the summer of 2017" is expected to be 27 July 2017 like ALIENWARE Area - 51 Threadripper Edition.The theory that it was postponed to August 10, 2017There are also, but in any case the release seems to be close at hand.

And the most important thing is the price of Ryzen Threadripper. Bits And Chips, which is well-known for accurate leak information on the CPU, is tweeting that the 16 core / 32 thread model is from 849 dollars (about 97,000 yen). Since the 16-core model "7351 P" corresponding to a single socket in the server CPU "EPYC 7000" series using the same CPU die has been clarified as $ 750 (about 83,000 yen), 16 cores of Ryzen Threadripper There is a possibility that it is 849 dollars. If there are 16 cores / 32 threads of Ryzen Threadripper appearing at $ 849, 10 cores / 20 threads of Intel Core i9-7900X at $ 999 (about 110,000 yen) may be forced to struggle.

By the way Core i 9 series is a perfect rival "Ryzen Threadripper", but there is information from people in AMD that it will not be named "Ryzen 9".

Whether Ryzen Threadripper can break through Intel 's high - end CPU, the answer is likely to come out within a month.
