The HEXUS editor was at Computex 2018 to see the AMD press conference live, just a fortnight ago. Probably the highlight of the presentation was the announcement of a next gen Threadripper CPU which will come packing 32 cores and deliver 64 threads of processing power. AMD's powerful new 12nm Zen+ Threadripper, configured as four Ryzen dies connected via Infinity Fabric, is destined for release sometime in Q3 this year. It is expected to perform in modern multi-threaded tasks as much as twice as fast as first gen Threadripper processors.
You can see some early tests of an air-cooled 32C/64T AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU from the YouTube video AMD shared of its Computex presentation here (skip to 1hr 15 mins). It swiftly completed a preset Blender render in 29 seconds, while the rival liquid cooled 18C/36T Intel Core i9 system took 39 seconds to finish. Both systems were equipped with 32GB of RAM.
Moving onto the fresh leaks, as revealed by VideoCardz via a Chinese source, first of all we have what is purported to be an AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU-Z screenshot (above). In the main details tab that is shared you can clearly see that this 32-core processor is based upon 12nm tech, as per the Computex presentation. This second gen 32C/64T processor name appears to be 'Ryzen Threadripper 2990X'. We can also see that this Pinnacle Ridge processor has a 250W TDP. Other technical information regarding core voltage, instruction set support, core speeds and multipliers, and caches is shared for you to peruse.
Turning to the benchmarks, the 32-core processor was run through multiple Cinebench tests and delivered up to 6399cb. The sample chip seemed to perform best at 4.12GHz which must have provided the best balance between clock speeds and thermal throttling with the given cooling solution.
