Threadripper has been dellided - Confirmed to be soldered

Der8auer did it so you won't have to.

Read more on AMD's Threadripper CPU.

I'm not saying that 1984 is a bad book, but the dystopia we are currently living in has much better worldbuilding.

So ryzen dies that cannot run with all 8 cores is put in TR to use as big a percentage of dies as possible? Or how does this work?
The size is just crazy looking forward to seeing the performance.

IIRC each one of those things you see in there is a quad core unit. So there are four quad core units in the 16 core, for example. The 12 core will probably use three fully functional units. I doubt they will use failed units in TR, that's what the R3s are for.

They more than likely take failed cores. I don't think they would disable any. If people found a to go from 16 to 32 cores..... Yeah imagine how that's gonna go.

Or like WYP said, just only two active dies. Keeps costs down instead of having to redesign a new cpu

This brings back memories of unlocking Intel cores. And the boards actually marketed unlocking ability.

This could be their leftovers from EPYC CPUs, and i mean literally. I don't think AMD would go through all the fuss with putting, and soldering dead dies on PCB. I always thought that TR will be with all functioning dies but every die will have some of the cores dead. This makes things interesting.

These are EPYC CPU's that are used as threadripper, Der8auer actually wondered if the cores could be reactivated so that you have a 32 core CPU again, and this also debunks Intels glued together rubbish too as there are 4 cores not 2 Ryzens glued together
