In addition to the AMD Ryzen QuadCore, Hexacore, and Octacore CPUs for gamers and content creators (Ryzen 7/5/3), AMD also offers a series of scalable server CPUs, called Ryzen Epyc, And are also based on the "Zen" microarchitecture. The link between the server CPUs and the processors for gamers and creatives is formed by AMD's Ryzen Threadripper Dodeca core and Hexadeca core processors. With comparatively high clock rates, many of which benefit games and applications, as well as up to 16 cores with 32 threads for image and video editing, Ryzen Threadripper is a true multi-tasking platform.
Satte 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes are provided by the threadripper CPUs, supporting gaming systems with two fully-connected high-end graphics cards and multiple NVMe PCIe SSDs. In addition, at least 1 TB of DDR4 RAM is supported in particularly fast quad-channel mode and native clock rates of up to 2.666 MHz, in order to create memory capacities for professional applications and server functions. Depending on the mainboard, even memory can be used with much higher clock rates using overclocking to get even more performance out of the Ryzen threadripper CPU.

AMD Zen - Scalable architecture with Precision Boost technology
AMD Ryzen Logo
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is a "Zen" generation processor with 16 physical CPU cores that can simultaneously process two threads at a time thanks to Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) so that the number of core cores with the additional 16 virtual cores is effectively increased 32 doubled. The 16 core CPU operates at a high clock rate of 3.4 GHz per core, which precisely adapts to the respective utilization scenario by means of Precision Boost - whether in games or applications - and thus in fine steps of 25 MHz On-the-fly under the TDP on each up to 4,0 GHz turbo.
Obendrein, the chip architecture is cooler and quieter than all its predecessors and has been specifically designed and optimized for high overclocking, resulting in drastically improved energy efficiency and a moderate thermal design power (TDP), considering the process location and the number of CPU cores ) Of this model 180 watts. The impressive performance of the CPU shows that AMD used the time spent on research and development, so Ryzen, thanks to the direct predecessor Excavator, was able to perform with a dramatic increase in per-clock power (IPC) in both classic single-threaded and highly parallelized systems Multi-threaded applications to achieve optimal performance.
The silicon is lithographed with stacked transistors (also called 3D transistors) in the advanced 14-nm FinFET manufacturing process. The space available on the processor die and the size of the threadripper CPU, thanks to the greatly reduced size, allows the integration of a total of 8 MB of Level 2 cache and a full 32 MB of Level 3 cache, To the side. With smart-to-use cache buffers and highly predictive leap forwarding thanks to Smart Prefetch algorithms, Ryzen is a guarantee of delay-free data access and fast calculations in all usage scenarios - from gaming and virtual reality to cloud computing and virtualization.
Extended Frequency Range (XFR) for automatic overclocking
AMD Extended Frequency Range (XFR) The AMD Ryzen TR 1950X is equipped with the revolutionary Auto-OC feature Extended Frequency Range (XFR) ), Which can increase the process operating cycle far beyond the factory-set limit of the maximum boost clock, provided that the cooling used provides corresponding reserves. As soon as the integrated sensors of the CPU register additional cooling capacities, the Ryzen CPU automatically adjusts its clock rates to the respective cooling solution.
User intervention is not necessary - overclocking has never been so easy! Depending on whether the processor is kept at temperature by means of air cooling with a comparatively small boxed cooler, a larger (dual) tower cooler, efficient AiO or custom water cooling or even with an extremely cold liquid nitrogen (LN2), XFR ensures Unlimited clock rates in the Premium and Enthusiast range depending on the available cooling capacity.
Unlocked CPU: Child-friendly overclocking thanks to free multiplier
As an alternative to this, all AMD Ryzen CPUs are "unlocked" and have a free multiplier, as is the case with the "Black Editions" and "K" versions of earlier model series, so that overclockers can manage the relatively high clock rates directly by hand in the BIOS or UEFI Or by means of software tools, a corresponding motherboard with the OC-capable AMD X399 chipset and sufficient additional cooling provided.
High-tech platform TR4 with lush features
AMD Ryzen Threadripper Box Mainboards with the LGA socket TR4 serve as a platform for the AMD Ryzen threadripper CPUs and offer state-of-the-art interfaces. The CPU itself has 12 dedicated PCI Express 3.0 lanes for connecting modern SATA or PCI Express SSDs in M.2 or U.2 format and supports the specially developed NVM Express protocol (NVMe for short) ). A further 48 PCIe 3.0 lines provide more than enough bandwidth for up to four high-end gaming graphics cards. Additional PCIe lanes for additional volumes, expansion cards, and peripherals are provided separately, depending on the motherboard chipset. The TR4 platform also brings modern external device connections such as USB 3.1 Gen 2 with Type A and / or Type C connectors and high data transmission rates of up to 10 Gbit / s.
Using the integrated memory controller of the CPU, TR4 motherboards also support fast and energy-efficient DDR4 memory in quad-channel mode with or without ECC error correction. Using Pure Power sensors, AMD Ryzen's Threadripper processors continuously monitor temperature, voltage, and clock speed to provide the best possible energy consumption for each application scenario. AMD's Advanced Set of Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX2) is also the latest addition to the SIMD instruction set extensions (Instruction Sets), which can be used in scientific simulations, video editing, image processing, audio editing, video games and multimedia applications Can sometimes provide immense performance enhancements as long as the application supports this feature.
