World’s biggest computer electronics event named Computex is finally here. Where we will get to see a lot of new PC hardware from famous companies. Among which AMD will also be the one there, showing us what their new Threadripper CPU can really do. But looks like two variants of the AMD Threadripper CPU have already been leaked on the internet.
Two variants of the AMD Threadripper were seen listed on Skroutz, a Greek online retail store. Where the two variants listed were the AMD Threadripper 1998 and the AMD Threadripper 1998X. If you don’t know X stands for AMD’s new XFR technology. Which basically overclocks the CPU automatically depending on the headroom available. The more cooling provided will result in a higher overclock.
There were no launch dates mentioned on the website but that is not interesting part. According to Skroutz the AMD Threadripper 1998 comes with a base clock of 3.2 GHz. Though there was no mentioning of the boost clock on the CPU. On the other hand the AMD Threadripper 1998X comes with a base clock of 3.5 GHz. Aside from that both variants of the AMD Threadripper will be running on a SP3r2 socket that is equipped with 4098 pins.
In case you are unaware AMD Threadripper is an enthusiast level offering from AMD. Where the CPU comes with a total of 16 cores and 32 threads. AMD Threadripper will also be from their Ryzen 9 lineup. That will also include other chips as well. Where the difference between the chips will be in the number of cores present on them. In their Ryzen 9 lineup AMD will be offering a 10 core, 12 core, 14 core and a 16 core CPU.
Intel has also responded to AMD’s new Threadripper announcement. Where the blue team announced their upcoming Core i9 processor lineup that we have yet to see in action.
