Codemasters unveils dirt 5 features locations and modes

Before the rumors that AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series CPUs will be released tomorrow, images of the TRX40 Aorus Xtreme motherboards retail box were leaked. Even more interesting than what is essentially embellished cardboard is the news of a new plug called the sTRX4 (as opposed to the previous generation of TR4 plugs).

Although the TRX40 chipset motherboard is no secret at the moment, it is the first time we have heard of a new slot, albeit unofficially. It appears that AMD is breaking with its tradition of backward CPU support and introducing a new format for the Threadripper 3000 series.

As for the reasons behind the strategic shift, a larger number of cores and transition may need to be redesigned to the 7nm process to accommodate changes, especially the long-awaited 64-core Threadripper variant.

In fact, the new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000-series CPU is expected to dominate the high-end desktop market, with significant improvements in efficiency and performance over existing Threadripper products, in part due to the increase in the number of of cores to 24. At the same time, the base model has 48 threads, and the number of cores of the more powerful model has been increased to 64.

Therefore, very similar to the approach that AMD seems to be taking, it is better to try the TRX40 chipset as a new platform fully oriented to the consumer market, which is increasingly inclined towards a greater number of cores.

While it may be technically feasible to provide backward compatibility, the related costs may be too high for AMD to adhere to its current pricing structure. This not only makes Intel uncomfortable, but it also forces the processor giant to lower its prices. especially when it comes to the HEDT market and its Cascade Lake X processors.

Of course, motherboard manufacturers will be very satisfied with the new sTRX4 socket, because it means more sales.
