Ryzen Threadripper, AMD‘s new addition to Ryzen family. According to Advanced Micro Device, the new CPU comes with 16 core, 32 thread which is unique in its kind. One of the hot rumor of this year is Intel is preparing to launch a Core i9 CPU at Computex. If the rumors are true, Intel’s top-end Core i9 will feature 12 cores and Hyper-Threading and will be paired with the new X299 chipset. The CPUs themselves would apparently be based on 6th- or
7th generation Cores.
The CPU wars Intel Core i9 vs Ryzen Threadripper
Intel dominate CPU market for many years. Now the CPU wars are on between AMD and Intel. Though it is good news for PC enthusiasts. AMD’s Jim Anderson said, “Ryzen Threadripper is targeted at the absolute ultra high-end of performance on the desktop.” It seems that Intel’s rumored Core i9 expected to max out with 12 cores, the AMD 16 Core Threadripper will deal with it very well. It is expected that Threadripper will be the first choice for its more Core & thread. Of course, none of this is real until the chips are shipped and in the hands of independent reviewers.
