Back in late August, we got our first glimpse at the chipsets that will underpin AMD's new third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, which are based on Zen 2 architecture. At the time, we didn't know anything about the chipsets other their names which were TRX40, TRX80, and WRX80. We later got word of two upcoming motherboards from ASUS and MSI: the Prime TRX40-Pro and the ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming, and the TRX40 PRO 10G and TRX40 PRO WIFI respectively. Today, we're learning a little bit more about the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors, which will allegedly be split into TRX4 HEDT and WRX8 configurations according to Gamers Nexus. From the looks of things, TRX4... Read more...
We know that AMD has third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors in route, and evidence of the pending launch is starting to mount. The latest new comes from respected leaker momomo_us, who uncovered some certification details for the processor family. Both AMD's new EPYC 7002 and third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors -- codename Rome and Castle Peak respectively -- gained PCI-SIG certification on August 23rd. As we saw with the Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 and EPYC 7002 families that came before it, the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors will support PCIe 4.0. However, at this time the only products that support the interface are Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards and... Read more...
Make no mistake, Threadripper is not dead. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed there will be at least one more round of Threadripper CPUs, based on the company's Zen 2 CPU architecture. In the lead up to the eventual launch, USB-IF has made references to three new chipsets for the upcoming Threadripper chips, those being TRX40, TRX80, and WRX80. It's not yet clear how each chipset will differentiate itself from the others—it's possible that the TRX80 and WRX80 could have more DDR4 DIMM slots than TRX40, and perhaps more PCI Express lanes as well, though we're merely guessing. And while we are doing that, it's probably a safe bet the WRX80 chipset will be for workstation motherboards. Click to... Read more...
