AMD confirmed the existence of "Ryzen Threadripper" at its 2017 Financial Analyst day. However, only a few details were released.

AMD Unveils The "World's Fastest" For High-End Desktops

AMD has officially unveiled a brand new enthusiast CPU lineup called "Threadripper" featuring up to 16 cores and 32 threads. The company's brand new enthusiast CPU lineup is set to debut at the end of the month at Computex and bring the company's outstanding Zen architecture to the high-end desktop, according to Digital Trends.

AMD Chief Lisa Su unveiled formal branding for the company's server chip, now dubbed "Epyc". She also said that it will take advantage of "the single biggest growth opportunity" in chips, the data center market.

Her head of computing products, Jim Anderson, unveiled a part for high-end desktop PCs called "Threadripper." CTO Mark Paper master also vowed the company is "back in high performance and here to stay".

The "World's Fastest" High-End Desktops Details

WCCF Tech reported that the Whitehaven platform will include support for quad-channel DDR4 memory support, more PCIe lanes, and more storage compared to AMD's X370 on AM4. It will compete directly with Intel's upcoming HEDT X299 platform and Skylake X CPUs which will feature up to 12 cores.

Hence, the new high-end desktop platform will compete directly with Intel's upcoming HEDT X299 platform and Skylake X CPUs which will feature up to 12 cores. Threadripper processors also offer more I/O, storage, cores, threads, and L3 Cache compared to Ryzen & Intel's upcoming X299.

With a 16 core Ryzen in the high-end desktop, the Zen architecture is well on its way to displacing Intel's Extreme edition processors from the performance throne that they've long held on to. The "Threadripper" may be the first CPU family from AMD to win the ultimate performance crown since the app code named "hammer".

The architecture hammered Intel's Pentiums was created nearly 14 years ago in the form of the Athlon 64. Hence, AMD confirmed that it will indeed reveal more details about Threadripper at Computex in just under two weeks.
