    AMD preparing to launch 16-Core 32-Thread high-end desktop CPU

    It's been only a couple of days we are hearing rumors and unofficial confirmations of Intel Core i9 series CPUs for super high-end desktop users offering up to 12 core 24 thread of raw power. While the rumor mill is still powering up, AMD has unveiled Threadripper, a 16-core, 32-thread CPU that will take on Intel Core i9 or whatever they are going to bring. At its presentation to financial analysts today, AMD presented an outline of upcoming product rollouts. The flagship HEDT (high-end desktop) Intel CPU is the Core i7-6950X, which has 10 cores and 20 threads and with Ryzen competing with Intel on a performance per clock basis and also offering very keen prices, Threadripper could well be lining up to disrupt the HEDT market too. The company may have wanted to get the launch in ahead of Intel, which will reportedly unveil a long-rumored 12-core Core i9 chip and new X99 HEDT platform sometime soon.

    On the opposite end of the spectrum, the mobile version of its Ryzen processor for 2-in-1s, ultrabooks and gaming laptops will hit in the second half of this year. It's the company's first APU based on its Zen architecture and incorporates Vega-based graphics processing on-die.

    AMD also announced a new data center CPU too. Called EPYC, AMD CEO Lisa Su took to the stage to reveal the 32-core, 64-thread CPU, which supports 128 PCI-E lanes, 16 channel DDR4 memory using 32 DIMMs and support for dual-socket as well with an Infinity Fabric-coherent interconnect for two EPYC CPUs.
