Threadripper series was the first High-End Desktop to offer 16-core/32-thread processors, which brought previously impossible performance to the marketplace. 2nd generation Threadripper managed to up that to a 32-core offering, again offering something never before seen and impressive after 1 generation.

AMD are stressing the performance numbers for the new Threadripper line up, while again we suggest passing the salt around, we are looking some some really solid numbers here, but full reviews will of course be the way to go once the chips arrive.
