AMD Ryzen 9: High-End CPU Specs Rumored

Details have surfaced of an additional line of Ryzen CPUs from AMD for the high-end desktop (HEDT) market by the name of Ryzen 9. Previously under the codename “Threadripper,” the Ryzen 9 line reportedly contains nine different models that will span four different core/thread configurations.

Keep in mind that the rumors may not be 100 percent accurate, but according to Guru3D via WikiChip, the following will make the lineup of AMD Ryzen 9 processors:

Ryzen 9 CPU Cores/Threads Core Clock Boost Clock TDP
1998X 16 / 32 3.5GHz 3.9GHz 155W
1998 16 / 32 3.2GHz 3.6GHz 155W
1977X 14 / 28 3.5GHz 4.0GHz 155W
1977 14 / 28 3.2GHz 3.7GHz 140W
1976X 14 / 28 3.6GHz 4.1GHz 140W
1956X 12 / 24 3.2GHz 3.8GHz 125W
1956 12 / 24 3.0GHz 3.7GHz 125W
1955X 10 / 20 3.6GHz 4.0GHz 125W
1955 10 / 20 3.1GHz 3.7GHz 125W

Currently, the Ryzen 7 1800X is AMD’s top-of-the-line CPU and sports eight cores and 16 threads. It excels in video production and image rendering tasks, especially considering its relatively modest price tag. Ryzen 9 CPUs would not be intended for gaming applications alone; HEDT processors cater to users that multitask with several CPU intensive programs.

Similarly, details on Intel’s upcoming high-end processors, the Core i9 line, have surfaced. The most robust model seen from the Intel rumors, the Core i9-7920X, is said to feature 12 cores and 24 threads, a successor to the i7-6950X. Additional SKUs with six, eight, and ten-core configurations would compete with AMD’s multi-core offerings.

It seems that information is leaking as we approach Computex, which will take place from May 30 to June 1 this year. It’s the largest PC hardware convention, and AMD will be holding a press conference on May 31 to likely reveal Vega GPUs and additional Ryzen CPUs.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
