AMD Announces Radeon RX Vega 56 Nano - 06/06/2018 04:52 AMOver at Taiwan, AMD announced a new Vega card, it's a Nano. Second-gen Threadrippers will have all four dies under their integrated heat spreaders enabled to reach that core count. It has 32 cores and it's not afraid to use it. For those keeping score, the current Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has 16 cores/32 threads.
As we saw with 2nd Gen Ryzen, these new Threadripper processors will also work on X399 and Socket TR4 motherboards, though a BIOS update will be required.
AMD didn't reveal any formal benchmarks but claims it means the new Threadripper CPUs are significantly faster running creative workloads, like rendering graphics in Blender, than Intel's top Core i9 CPU.
