AMD Ryzen Threadripper Socket TR4 Processors

AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs feature up to 16 cores with SMT technology and so can process up to 32 threads in parallel. This makes them ideally suited for heavily multithreaded applications such as video encoding and 3D rendering or running lots of applications at once. These multi-core CPUs support ultra-fast quad-channel DDR4 memory and with 64 PCI-E lanes can support multiple graphics cards and other devices such as RAID controllers, sound cards. These high-end CPUs use the special Socket TR4 and require a motherboard based on the AMD X399 chipset.
