It is expected to compete with the 18-core Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition, also available on Computex 2017. If the Core i9 Extreme Edition supports 44 PCIe 3.0 lines, the Ryzen Threadripper has 64 PCI Express 3.0 lines. Additional PCIe 3.0 lines provide more options for connecting high-performance graphics cards, drives and other "peripherals". As clarified by AMD, in fact, the processor Threadripper will not be one, but several, up to 16-nuclear models. But each version will receive 64 lines of PCI Express 3.0, support for 4-channel DDR4 memory to 2 TB in volume and the chipset X399. The processor's debut is scheduled for the summer of 2017. Motherboards with Threadripper support were planned for release by such manufacturers as ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI.
