AMD's Threadripper struts onstage with Radeon RX Vega and a big surprise

Threadripper stepped out in public for the first time at Computex in Taipei, where AMD ran its 16-core Ryzen-based desktop chip through various benchmarks and games. Even better for AMD fans: The company showed off the highly anticipated monster CPU running two of the companyís Radeon RX Vega in CrossFire mode.

AMD also hit back at Intel after Tuesday's revelation of the Core i9. Sure, Intel's new high-end CPU will max out at 18 cores compared to Threadripper's 16. AMD's surprise: Threadripper would not have 44 PCIe lanes as previously rumored, but rather an insane 64 lanes of PCIe Gen 3.0.

Having access to a full 64 lanes on all Threadripper chips is a big deal. Typical consumer platforms such as the Ryzen 7 and Core i7-7700K top out at 16 lanes of PCIe. Intelís new Core i9/X299 platform hikes that up to 44 lanes of PCIe, but only in the higher-end chips, creating artificial limitations on more modest versions.

AMDís Ryzen Threadripper/X399 platform takes I/O to a level never seen before in a consumer desktop machine. Most consumers wonít need that kind of speed, but anyone who piles on the storage options and multiple GPUs will welcome AMDís 64 PCIe lanes.

AMD officials also showed off the companyís upcoming Ryzen-based mobile chip in what looked like a reference convertible laptop. Officials said it would feature four cores alongside Radeon graphics in a single chip.

Whatís amazing is the contrast in scale between the monster Ryzen Threadripper and the mobile chip, code-named Raven Ridge.

With cryptocurrency also causing their high end video cards to sell out, I think AMD is due for a monster comeback...

4 CCXs on one package, bound to be massive. Rumor is that AMD is working on a beefed up AIO Wraith cooler for it.
