Amd ryzen threadripper 48 core cpu
Based on industry rumors, it appears that AMD is preparing to release a 48-core processor for its 3rd-gen Ryzen Threadripper series of CPUs.
This was revealed through a post on the China science and technology website and was quickly discovered by Tech Powerup. In this article, the processor is referenced in the CPUZ version 1.91 code. CPUZ is an analysis and monitoring application that provides detailed information about the hardware currently running on your PC.
Of course, this is still a rumor, and it's worth adding a little salt. However, previously reputable sources revealed that there will indeed be a 48-core model from AMD. This source was right about the 3990X model before, so rumors may have some truth after all.
If the rumors are true, it will mean that the 48-core chip will sit on the market between AMD's 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X and the previously released 32-core 3970X model.
This will further broaden the range of CPUs offered, which is good news for those customers looking for more options between the two previous models.
Given that the 3990X appears to be very expensive when it launches, this may be good news for those looking for the most affordable CPU from AMD without drastically degrading performance.
For AMD, this looks like an interesting start to the year. If the leak is true, it will definitely make Intel sit up and pay attention. As AMD expands its high-end CPU lineup to accommodate various budgets, this may mean a big deal for consumers, but it is a worrying period for competitors such as Intel.
We look forward to hearing more about whether these rumors are true during the 2020 International Consumer Electronics Show. As always, we will keep you informed when the latest AMD news arrives.
