Details leaked about 16-core, 32-thread AMD 'Whitehaven' Ryzen CPUs

Price war on Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 starts

Price war on Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 starts

Long-running rumours that AMD will release a number of Ryzen CPUs with 12 or more cores have been firmed up following the leak online of documents listing a number of AMD engineering samples. Until now we didn't know how its new socket would be like, but this new leak gives us a look at it.

There's not a day that we're not talking about AMD Ryzen.

The documents indicate plans for 12-core and 16-core parts dubbed "Whitehaven", which will offer 24 and 32 threads respectively. Among them are two CPUs with 16 cores/32 threads with base clocks of 3.1 GHz and boost clocks of 3.6 GHz. Next up are three 14-core/28-thread chips starting with the Ryzen 9 1976X clocked at 3.6GHz to 4.1GHz with a 140W TPD. There are a number of other CPUs mentioned, including some with just four cores and one with only two cores, but each supports SMT and therefore sports double the threads.

AMD's purported 14C/28T processors will arrive as the Ryzen 9 1977X with a base 3.5GHz clock and boost of 4.1GHz on a 155W TDP. These will consist of the Ryzen 9 1956 clocked at 3GHz to 3.7GHz, and the Ryzen 9 1956X clocked at 3.2GHz to 3.8GHz.

According to WCCFTech, the Whitehaven parts will be aimed at enthusiasts - presumably ones with deep pockets - who might otherwise be tempted by Intel Skylake X, due out in the third quarter, and won't be compatible with AM4 due to their sheer size. It will come clocked at 3.2GHz to 3.6GHz and have a 155W TDP, and the second is the Ryzen 9 1998X clocked at 3.5GHz to 3.9GHz, also with a 155W TDP. Bear in mind that 4.1GHz has been the top overclock on most liquid cooled Ryzen chips so far, but getting a single core or two that high has been easier. Current 8-core/16-thread processors are already ahead of the curve, so you're not going to see much of a benefit from these monster CPUs in the short term.

At the low end of the Ryzen 9 spectrum are the 1955X and 1955, with a measly 10 cores apiece, both with 125W TDP.

AMD Ryzen 9 Threadripper seems to be interesting but we have to see real world performance before we can say anything about the upcoming processors.
