Leaked slides pertaining to AMD's Next-Gen High-End Desktop (NG HEDT) platform reveal that AMD is bullish with regards to continuing and refining its Threadripper lineage. The slides reveal three Ryzen Threadripper families starting with the Threadripper 2000 set to launch in 2018, the Threadripper 3000 set for 2019, and culminating in the Threadripper 4000 set for 2020.

We reported earlier on AMD's leaked roadmap for 2018-2020 featuring a semi tick-tock inflection-optimization cadence. Each year will also see the launch of a new Threadripper Next-Gen High End Desktop (NG HEDT) family CPU alongside the regular Ryzen and Mobile Ryzen chips.

There are three Ryzen Threadripper CPU families that can be expected to make their mark between 2018 and 2020. We know that 2018 will see Threadripper Gen 2 (Threadripper 2000) chips featuring 12nm Zen+ cores. Similar to the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, the Zen+ Threadrippers will come with increased clocks and support Precision Boost 2.0 and eXtended Frequency Range (XFR) 2.0 technologies.

2019 will see the debut of the 7nm 'Castle Peak' Threadripper Gen 3 or 3000 family. The Threadripper 3000 family will continue support for existing TR4 socket motherboards and also bring support for new boards featuring PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes.

Finally, 2020 will see the arrival of the Threadripper Gen 4 or 4000 series. According to AMD's roadmap leaked earlier, the Threadripper 4000 falls in the Optimization part of the Inflection-Optimization cycle and thus will feature a refined Zen2 (Zen2+) core. Threadripper 4000 is expected to retain support for the TR4 socket but many come with new features that will eventually require upgrading to newer motherboards.

We are not quite sure of what CPU speeds are on the anvil but expect Threadripper to continue to lead the HEDT pack in offering a better value proposition than equivalent Intel offerings.

2020 will see a refined Zen2 architecture across HEDT, mainstream desktop, and mobile form factors. (Source: Informatica Cero / Wccftech)

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
