Now that AMD has launched its second-generation Ryzen CPUs, otherwise known as Zen +, the next thing we're looking for is the threadripper refresh. The 8-core, 12-core and 16-core models have now confirmed confirmed revisions based on a 12-nm process.
In AMD's Product Master document, which sells every microprocessor, GPU, and chipset from the company, the upcoming thread-ripper models were discovered. We know that in the second half of 2018, the new CPUs should come out of a previously presented roadmap.
The next generation of Threadripper CPUs will offer the same benefits as the second Ryzen generation. Lower memory latency and higher clock rates without significant increase in power consumption
|CPU model||Threadripper 2900X||Threadripper 2920X||Threadripper 2950X|
|Core / thread count||8C / 16T||12C / 24T||16C / 32T|
|Product Status||Mass Market||Mass Market||Mass Market|
In addition to Thread Ripper, AMD also has the Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 components of the second generation added to the catalog.
The Ryzen 3 2100 and 2300X as well as the Ryzen 5 2500X were mass-marketed. The 2200 and 2400 models are unlikely to be used with standard CPUs as they are used for Raven Ridge APUs. Notably, the 2500X could be the only Ryzen 5-quad-core processor aimed at gamers. Considering that the Ryzen 5 2600 with 6 cores performs well and is not outrageously expensive, a slightly cheaper mid-tier CPU can be overlooked.
For mobile applications Ryzen 3 2000U, Ryzen 5 2600U and Ryzen 7 2800U were added. Given that there is a 2800U for mobile devices, it would make sense that a 2800X later this year for desktop platforms could appear as a Binned 2700X with higher clock speeds.
