AMD Ryzen with 12 cores and 24 threads
Another day, another Ryzen leak. Today we share the details of yet unannounced Ryzen CPU with 12 cores, which is most likely being prepared for AMD’s HEDT X390 platform.
I will start by saying that the machine detected with this CPU is Alienware Area-51 R3. The R2 (which looks like this) ships with Broadwell i7-6800/6850K processors.
We already heard that AMD is working on a 16-core chip, but this processor has ‘only’ 12 cores. This means that we are no longer looking at one product, but a whole new series.
I made this chart to give you all the details at a glance. Most interesting details: it’s not a server chip, it has new socket and turbo clock at 3.2 GHz. The good news is that this is a second generation engineering sample, but not yet a qualification sample (we are probably few weeks before seeing QS).

Closing thought: now I’m just wondering how are those CPUs going to be called.. Ryzen 9 1900X?
