AMD announces Threadripper 2 processors - AMD

Intel pulls a surprise with 28-core CPU at Computex AMD Demos Beastly 32-Core 2nd Gen Threadripper, 7nm Vega With 32GB HBM2

AMD this week promised to ship 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 2 processors in the third quarter of 2018 - one day after Intel bragged about a forthcoming 28-core part. Thankfully AMD delivered on the goods.

AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) has revealed the 2 gen Ryzen Threadripper processor and 7nm Radeon Vega GPU, both set to launch later this year. Second, the server market EPYC CPUs came in 32 core packages and used the same system as Threadripper, so it's not entirely unexpected to see these HEDT chips coming out with the full core counts. That means that the new High-End Desktop (HEDT) processors offer lower latencies, higher clock speeds, and Precision Boost 2 capabilities for finer-grained clock control.

Lisa Su however also stated that the same technology gone into the making of the new Radeon Vega chips would be applied to Radeon gaming GPU as well.

AMD's new 32-core CPU will be part of the company's prosumer/professional "Threadripper 2" series. AMD had working samples at the Computex event, crunching away in Blender with a live demo. This card has been on show for nearly a year now, at various AMD press events, and has been a long time in the making - still, better late than never.

Like Halep, Stephens is an incredibly talented defensive player, and she kept stretching points Thursday until Keys would err. As great a mover and defender as Halep is, she could be left powerless if Muguruza is at her imposing best.


Whether AMD can unlock all that potential is yet to be seen, but gamers should expect to see some of the benefits from the move to 7nm once AMD launch the first 7nm Navi graphics cards and 7nm Zen 2 CPUs sometime next year. That's great for now, but AMD is also looking to the future, and the future is 7nm.

Luckily, Vega did appear briefly thanks to PowerColor, as the architecture received its first Nano variant. The new product families are more power efficient than the 8th Generation Coffee Lake chips that are now starting to arrive in products.

Moving forward, AMD plans to alternate between new graphics architectures and new process nodes. Equipped with a massive 32GB bank of HBM2 memory and dedicated inference-enhancing operations, the card is created to massively accelerate machine learning inference and work with massive datasets.

AMD also said it was sampling a 7nm Vega Instinct GPU designed for graphics cards with 32GB of expensive HBM2 memory rather than GDDR5X or GDDR6.
