AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are really quite nippy

In the great 'CPU core-off' at Computex 2018, AMD definitely came home the winner. Their monstrous 32-core 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper not only had more core doodads than Intel's mysterious 28-core effort, but it was also destined for actual, real-life PCs owned by regular humans, not corporate enterprise servers that are presumably controlled by heartless robots. It also has, I have to say, the best…

Intel’s 28-core CPU monster vs. AMD’s 32-core 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper

The battle for 'how many cores can you possibly fit onto a CPU' has been getting rather toasty at this year's Computex show, as last night Intel and AMD both unveiled (or teased, in Intel's case) some monstrously powerful CPUs in the form of 28-core and, wait for it, 32-core chipsets.

Meanwhile, the insane ThreadRipper CPU with 16 cores and 32 threads has also landed. It’s all a far cry from just a few months ago when AMD was soldiering on with an elderly graphics product and a…

AMD’s THREADRIPPER is not a name I created?

THREADRIPPER, I have only just discovered, is the dramatic name of AMD's new high-end processor line launching in August. My immediate questions are: when did AMD hire me and why can I not remember? I'm sure AMD have some very talented copywriters and productnamers but when they name a processor THREADRIPPER and declare their CPU launch schedule to be an "onslaught" I know that it…
