Things are starting to fall into place for AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, which are based on 12nm Pinnacle Ridge architecture. Today, we're learning partial details on three upcoming Ryzen Threadripper SKUs courtesy of HWBOT. These specs are by no means official or finalized, but they do give us a general idea of what to expect when the processor family [allegedly] launches on August 13th. The only processor that AMD has confirmed at this point is the Ryzen Threadripper 2990X, and HWBOT says that this 32-core (64-thread) processor has a base clock of 3.4GHz and a TDP of 250 watts.

AMD made a huge splash in the HEDT market last year with the release of the Ryzen Threadripper family of processors. Available with up to 16 cores (32 threads), Ryzen Threadripper proved to be a fierce competitor to Intel's Core-X family of processors while offering incredible value.

The HEDT war between Intel and AMD really kicked off last year as the former introduced its Core-X family (with up to 18 cores) and the latter debuted Ryzen Threadripper (with up to 16 cores). This year, the core counts are set to jump again with AMD announcing the mind-blowing 32-core/64-thread Ryzen Threadripper (reportedly called the 2990X) at Computex earlier this month. The processor is now listed for pre-order via German retailer Cyberport. At the moment, we're going to take this pre-order listing with a grain of salt, but it does show the Ryzen Threadripper 2990X priced at 1,509 Euros, which converts to roughly $1,755. Of course, you can never trust a straight... Read more...
