Of late, we’ve been hearing quite a lot about AMD Threadripper and Vega cards. Ryzen Threadripper – AMD’s new ultimate desktop platform – is well on its way to becoming the most powerful consumer CPU ever introduced. We already reported about early listing of AMD Ryzen 9 Threadripper 1998X and 1998. The Ryzen Threadripper 1998X SKU comes with a base clock of 3.5GHz and a boost clock that goes all the way till 3.9GHz. At Computex, AMD demonstrated Threadripper under a Blender benchmark test completing the rendering task in a blitz. Looks like AMD’s Threadripper and upcoming Vega cards will give some serious competition to Intel and Nvidia.
AMD Vega 16/8 GB cards and Ryzen Threadripper 1920 12-Core CPU leaked
AMD’s 12-core Ryzen Threadripper 1920 CPU and Vega 16GB, 8GB cards have been leaked. Earlier reports have already thrown enough light on naming scheme starting with 19##. Now, reports have detailed the first ever confirmed Threadripper product and as expected, it follows the 19## naming convention AMD is following.
The leak comes in the form of Ryzen Threadripper 1920 – a 12 core, 24 Thread CPU with a base clock of 3.2GHz. However, the turbo clock speed remains unknown at this point in time. Chips spotted earlier with ID ZD1840A8UGAF4 had a base clock of about 3.4GHz and a 3.7GHz turbo speed. The latest reports about confirmed Threadripper products, rather than ES (Engineering Samples), hints about AMD being well on track for summer launch.
The leak also sheds some light on 16GB and 8GB Vega cards. Two Radeon Vega Frontier Edition parts have been leaked. The cards come with similar GPU clock speeds and memory capacity – they only differ when it comes to memory clock speeds. As you can see from the specs below, one of the variants comes with memory frequency of 925 while the other boasts of a frequency reaching 945. Memory capacity remains at 16GB for both cards.
|CPU||GPU Frequency||Memory||Memory Frequency||Memory Bandwidth|
|Radeon Vega Frontier Edition||1600||16GB||925||474GB/s|
|Radeon Vega Frontier Edition||1600||16GB||945||484GB/s|
