As 2020 comes to an end, it can be said that it has been a rewarding year for AMD. At the beginning of the year, the third generation Threadripper was released to the market, and the second half of the year was the home of Zen3 architecture processors and RDNA2 graphics cards.
However, this year seems to have a regret, there is no Zen3 architecture of the new generation of Threadripper.
Because in AMD’s December update of the investor briefing, the Zen3 architecture Threadripper processor is listed, so we can confirm that the CPU is still in preparation, but will have to wait until next year to debut.
This briefing also seems to reveal the packaging of the new Threadripper.
The previous generation Zen2 architecture Threadripper up to 64 cores and 128 threads (3990X), speculation is that this generation will also maintain the same configuration, but due to the huge improvement in the Zen3 architecture itself, the x86 processor performance myth written by 3990X, is expected to be rewritten again.
