wccftech is reporting on two engineering samples of new AMD processors which feature 16 cores and 32 threads with a boost clock speed of 3.6GHz and a base clock of 3.0GHz. They have pictures of the architecture you can look over contained in this post. This chip will also use a new socket, called S3, marking a nice change in a company that stuck with the AM3(+) chipset for the better part of a decade. The chips will support quad channel DDR4 as well as expanded PCIe lanes to offer better storage options as well as PCIe slots. AMD is aiming at offering some competition to Intel's upcoming release of Skylake-X, we should know more at Computex at the end of this month as AMD is expected to officially announce the product at that show.
"AMD’s upcoming 16 core enthusiast Ryzen “Whitehaven” CPUs have been spotted. The new processors will come in variations of up to 16 cores and 32 threads and will support quad-channel DDR4 memory."

AMD should give more info.
AMD should give more info. There is no downside as they dont have ANY product in the channel.
This would allow them to pause some of the sales going to the x99 / xeon platform. (assuming x399 is not 6+ month away)
On another note, the FX 9590 is a 220w CPU.
The 1800x is a 95w CPU. two 1800x = 190w
So why cant AMD release a 190w “Whitehaven” ?
3.6ghz base, 4.0ghz turbo. (With a 100mhz XFR)
XFR always seem to kick in on my 1800x, unless its some synthetic torture test. So its 3.7ghz on all 8 core in cinebench.

would like to know more, however i doubt if this will be a desktop part- probably server.
and what is the deal – no comments around anymore? we are the only two here?

I'm hoping they do make an enthusiast part, it will be pricey though.
Disabling the anons has had a huge impact on traffic, apparently a lot of people just came by to prove how badly they can behave.

On HEDT AMD platform; I sincerely hope so it will materialize. All I want from it (except load of cores) is at least 4 or 5 x16/x8 slots and 12+ SATA ports. If not then will stick with few X99s I have.
You seem to have goofed a bit
You seem to have goofed a bit calling S3 a ‘chipset’ in the article.
True, that is a socket.
True, that is a socket. Fixing it now.
And I think the 16 core chips
And I think the 16 core chips use SP4 not SP3, and also they have 32MB of L3 cache, not 64MB (2x Zepplin dies = 2 dies * 2 CCX * 8MB)

No one escaped. There was 1 person that liked to say that which though doesn’t like to be read by minors. Honestly removing it is hurting the site.
At least anonymous was mostly honest.
Those Intel & Nvidia rumors are hurting AMD again.
