While AMD is focused on stealing Intel's thunder with its 32-core Threadripper 2 processor, many eyes are looking ahead to the firm's 7nm Zen 2 architecture.
Other than the core and thread counts, AMD didn't share many more details about the second-gen Threadripper chips. If AMD pricing is anything to go by too, the Threadripper 2 chips will be substantially cheaper than Intel's new offering, though it could be that Intel has learned from past mistakes and will attempt to make itself more competitive on that front. "Those are tied together with AMD's Infinity fabric that allows those four die to act like one monster processor working altogether", said AMD senior vice president and general manager of computing and graphics, Jim Anderson.

New Willy Wonka Movie: Here's Who May Play The Title Role
The latest planned big screen Willy Wonka movie reboot is heading towards the casting stage, it seems. The new movie is being directed by Paddington's Paul King , working from a script by Simon Rich .
In terms of performance, AMD stage demonstration showed that the new chip able to beat Intel Core i9-7980XE in Blender test without any problem. In comparison, Threadripper 2 will be built on the same TR4 socket, which means existing x399 motherboards will work just fine with it.
AMD's previous roadmaps called for the company to get silicon back around this time to begin sampling by the end of the year, and at Computex the company has confirmed that they are right on schedule. She also announced 7-nanometer Epyc processors for enterprise and data centers, which are set to launch in 2019.
