AMD CEO Lisa Su recently confirmed the company is working on a new Ryzen Threadripper series and now WCCF Tech has some initial rumors. The site claims AMD is working on a 64-core, 128-threaded Threadripper beast that will be unleashed sometime in Q4 2019.
The platform is called X599 right now although I am told AMD is considering changing the name to avoid confusion with Intel. This is not really surprising since both Intel and AMD HEDT platforms have the same nomenclature and it can get really confusing. I am also told that they they plan to retain the “99” suffix. AMD is planning to launch the 64-core Threadripper part and the corresponding platform in Q4 2019. In fact, that is when you can expect these motherboards to start popping up from various AIBs.
