AMD Engineering Samples with 16 Cores/32 Threads Possibly Found

This is definitely in the 'rumor' column as someone appears to have found engineering samples of some as-yet unannounced AMD CPUs. Among them are two CPUs with 16 cores/32 threads with base clocks of 3.1 GHz and boost clocks of 3.6 GHz. These are labeled as the AMD Whitehaven platform and as they are first and second generation engineering samples, those clock speeds could increase by the time they release. There are a number of other CPUs mentioned, including some with just four cores and one with only two cores, but each supports SMT and therefore sports double the threads.

As the Videocardz source points out when it breaks down the numbering system for these CPUs, the two 16 core/32 thread chips are using a different socket than AM4 or SP3 (a server socket). There have been rumors previously that AMD is planning a separate X399 chipset targeting high end desktops (HEDT) that would also have a different socket. Allowing these rumors to have some truth to them, these may be CPU destined for that platform, and with a better-than 3 GHz clock speed, these could be some fairly powerful components. Only time will tell though.

With the new CEO and a fresh strategy,.. including new technology on server development to increase revenue,.. the future of AMD looks bright.
