Ryzen Threadripper will release this summer

 
AMD has confirmed that their new Ryzen Threadripper will be releasing in summer 2017, coming with up to 16 CPU cores and 32 CPU threads. 

The company has also confirmed that all Threadripper CPU will come with quad channel memory support and a total of 64 PCIe lanes, which means that unlike Intel AMD will not be taking away PCIe lanes from lower end Threadripper SKUs.

This will allow Threadripper to be able to use up to four GPUs with full PCIe 3.0 16x bandwidth, something that is impossible on Intel’s Skylake-X platforms, which maxes out at 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes.
