TechPowerUp writes Greek webshop Skroutz has listed two upcoming AMD Threadripper processors. The shop is listing the Threadripper and Threadripper 1998X, there's no pricing but we do have some specifications. Both are 16-core models with a whopping 32 threads.
Some specifications of the two SKUs were revealed, too. To begin with, both chips feature 16 cores, and SMT enables 32 logical CPUs for the OS to address. The Threadripper 1998 is clocked at 3.20 GHz, with an unknown boost clock; while the 1998X is clocked higher, at 3.50 GHz, with unknown boost clocks. The "X" in the model number could denote XFR, which could unlock higher automated overclocks than the boost clock. Both chips are listed with AMD socket SP3r2 support, AMD's upcoming 4,094-pin LGA socket.
AMD will reveal Threadripper at a pre-Computex event on May 29.
