The AMD Ryzen Threadripper Up Close
After the AMD Computex 2017 press conference, we had the opportunity to mingle with both Dr. Lisa Su and Jim Anderson. We also had the opportunity to take our first ever close-up look at the AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Ryzen Mobile CPUs. Check them out!
As you can see, this is a MASSIVE processor, with 4094 pins. It makes the AMD Ryzen Mobile APU look absolutely diminutive!
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper Delidded
German overclocked der8auer delidded a Threadripper processor with AMD’s permission recently, revealing many interesting facts.
- It has four Zeppelin dies with 32 cores, but only two dies (16 cores) are functional.
- It is functionally the AMD EPYC server processor with half the dies disabled.
- The dies are soldered to a gold-plated heat spreader using indium solder.

Earlier Threadripper Leaks
These were the leaked information we posted earlier :
- Although rumoured to be branded as the AMD Ryzen 9 processor (to directly compete against the newly-announced Intel Core i9 processors), AMD will be using the Ryzen Threadripper name instead. We can’t blame them – Threadripper is certainly a better and more memorable name than Ryzen 9!
- AMD will launch two Threadripper processors on 27 July 2017. -> Correct!
- The top-of-the-line processor will have 16 cores, capable of handling 32 simultaneous threads. -> Correct! It is the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X!
- There will also be a 12-core processor, capable of handling 24 simultaneous threads. -> Correct! It is the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X!
- There will eventually be 14-core and 10-core versions as well.
- All AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors will support quad DDR4 memory channels and 64 PCI Express lanes. -> Correct!
- They are rumoured to use a solder thermal interface material (TIM), which would make deliding of the processor by enthusiasts difficult, if not impossible. -> Correct!
