AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs will be released in the second half of 2018, giving the company a good few months to get their chips in a line with the second-gen Ryzen/400-series motherboard launches.

The company has confirmed their second-gen X470 chipset will be optimized for the new Ryzen processors, with lower power consumption being a key feature.   AMD’s refreshed Ryzen CPUs will be the first on the 12nm, with higher clock speeds, Precision Boost 2, and more.


We can see that Navi is after the Vega refresh, which should drop sometime in 2019 while the ‘next-gen’ GPU architecture will be released on the refined 7nm+ node, and hit graphics cards sometime in 2020.
