Earlier this month, a roadmap from an AMD investor presentation sparked speculation about
a possible delay or cancellation of the Threadripper series. In a chat with journalists at Computex, AMD CEO Lisa Su revaled the firm is working on new Threadripper products.
“You know. it’s very interesting, some of the things that circulate on the Internet—I don’t think we ever said that Threadripper was not going to continue—it somehow took on a life of its own on the Internet,” Su said, speaking to a small group of reporters following her keynote. “You will see more [Threadripper] from us; you will definitely see more.”
She also confirmed these new CPUs will feature more cores.
“If mainstream is moving up, then Threadripper will have to move up, up—and that’s what we’re working on,” Su said.
Su also hinted more about AMD's ray tracing plans will be revealed at the E3 game show in LA, about two weeks from now.
