AMD's 2nd Generation Processor, with 16-cores and 32-threads, Ryzen Threadripper is finally out for sale

AMD Ryzen

  • In April 2018 AMD released its Ryzen 2nd Generation processors, and totally destroyed the 1st Gen processors when it came to performance. AMD seems to have a similar agenda with the Ryzen Threadripper 2nd Generation to deliver top-of-the-line processors you can purchase in 2018 to match it's rival Nvidia GeForce RTX Turing Graphics.

Following the trend, Ryzen Threadripper 2nd-Gen shows a great leap in terms of performance. The higher clock speeds, better power management along with the increase in core-counts, the new processor has not disappointed us at all. 

Although the official reveal and pre-orders are open, AMD has still kept plenty secrets. But here is all we know as of now.
