AMD Showed Threadripper 2 With Up To 32 Cores
6 June, 2018

For 2018, AMD has prepared the next generation of Threadripper which is going to be using AMD’s updated 12nm Zeppelin dies with a number of other tweaks for better boost and faster caches.

AMD’s Zeppelin silicon is said to have 8 cores. The first generation Threadripper uses two of them to get to the top-SKU of 16-cores with CPU featuring four pieces of silicon: two active and two inactive. The second iteration, also known as Threadripper 2 or the Threadripper 2000-series, will turn these inactive dies into active ones, increasing the core count for the high-end desktop and workstation user.

At the AMD press event at Computex, the team revealed that these new processors would support up to 32 cores in total, mirroring the 32-core versions of EPYC. On EPYC, those processors are said to have four active dies, with eight active cores on each die. Please note that EPYC features eight memory channels, while AMD’s X399 platform only supports four channels. So, in the second generation Threadripper the two now ‘active’ parts of the chip do not have direct memory access.

AMD states that this shouldn’t be a problem for the most memory-bound tasks (you can also buy an EPYC for those workloads). 

Here is a table with more details on the second generation:
