  • Threadripper coming: split for low and high end, 8 channel memory


    According to a leak, allegedly from an exclusive source for Gamers Nexus, Threadripper is splitting into a low end (if you can call a threadripper processor "low end") and high end.

    what we've learned is that there's going to be a split. So there's a workstation and HEDT threadripper line of CPUs, there's a schism between them, and the core count and thread count, in these documents, were not revealed, the documents are intended for people like motherboard manufacturers to decide their thermal design, thermal solutions for motherboards, things like that, so it's information you'd need for heatsink design.






    The document specifies two different CPU classes, sTRX4 and sWRX8, for amount of memory channels afforded to each.








     




    What I find interesting is that the document says the sWRX8 is not overclockable. While I can see an overclockable chip of possible 64 cores or more being a huge power problem, Der8auer has been pushing the EPYC OC angle for quite some time, I'd have thought AMD would come around. As for what socket these may have, I would be surprised if the sWRX8 used the TR4 socket, but up to 32 cores is still expected for next gen on current X399 boards.
