AMD are rumoured to be creating a consumer-oriented 16-core Ryzen CPU

AMD are rumoured to be creating a consumer-oriented 16-core Ryzen CPU, coming on a larger LGA socket and support for quad-channel memory.



Read more on AMD's potential X99 competitor.

Doubt this will happen. Especially a "revised" Zen core? Yeah BS on that

NBD: agreed! Also, didn't AMD already confirm that the AM4 platform would last for a few years, with no new sockets? I know I read that somewhere, but not sure it was the "official" word.

You are right yes. No new sockets. They could update the chipset and keep same socket but Ryzen is at minimum a 4year commitment they said. Or 5 years? Can't remember which it was

The 10 core 6950X is a better overclocker than any of the Ryzen CPUs, AMD need to address this first before even thinking about a 16 core consumer CPU.

What would a 16 core Ryzen CPU run at, 2.5ghz?

I don't think that Ryzen cpus will ever be great overclockers. L3 cache doesn't have its own multiplier and I'm not sure that fabric thing between CCXs can handle overclock any better.

^^All of this, they have a good line up so far and should concentrate on that not throw more cores at the problem. #moarcoresfixesnothing

If this is true and I highly doubt it for reasons given (AMD changing sockets etc) then they would be forward thinking again. And they've gotten themselves into trouble every time they have done that.

However, that said we do need to move forward. If they can get 8 cores supported properly (and they're working at it) then the next progression will be more cores of course. Because IPC becomes tight, and at the end of the day the only way to move on from Moore's law is to add more cores.

People only think the idea of 16 cores is stupid because they have been on 2/4 for a decade. Why do servers have 64 cores (as an example)? because it makes them more productive. There is no reason other than Intel that desktop PCs could do the same.

Here is the following written:

https://www.overclock3d.net/news/cpu...re_ryzen_cpu/1

================================================== ======

Now Canard PC Hardware has released some additional information on this platform, stating that it is planned for a release in 4/6 months and that AMD's current samples have TDPs of 150W. Canard also lists AMD's 16-core 32-thread flagship as having base/boost clock speeds of 2.4 and 2.8GHz, which is very high for a CPU with such large high core count.

This new platform is said to be coming with an X399 socket and an LGA CPU, bridging the gap between traditional desktop CPUs and server platforms. These new CPUs will also come as dual-chip multi-chip modules (MCM), which means that this chip is made using two CPU dies rather than a single, larger die.

This seems highly unlikely and a bit incredible. The leaked dialogue is written convincingly, but calling it X399 and it having none of the issues of current Ryzen seems a little hard to believe, especially that it's going to be unveiled at Computex.
