A couple of weeks ago, AMD introduced processors Threadripper, which is a first for the manufacturer, HEDT platform. Then we were told that the CPU in the maximum configuration can have 16 cores with SMT support.
Tonight during the conference, AMD revealed new details about these solutions. The CPU is designed to work with motherboards that use the chipset X399.
All new CPU can boast of Quad-channel memory controller and 64 PCIe lanes! For comparison, the older models of Intel Core i9, most of which have to compete processors Threadripper, there are only 44 lines and the younger less. Furthermore, it is known about the presence of the 32 MB cache of the third level have 16-core AMD novelties.
To demonstrate the capabilities of AMD run the game Prey at maximum settings in 4K resolution. The system was used on the basis of top Threadripper CPU and two graphics cards Radeon RX Vega. Of course, this PC has no trouble with the game, but then nothing else could be expected. Moreover, Prey — not the most demanding modern game.
