The AMD Ryzen Threadripper is by far the most powerful processor to date. 12 cores and 24 threads each, that is absolutely dwarfing any other processor ever created in the history of mankind. But really, is that all there is to it? Numbers? Just plain numbers?

Why, yes.

 

What makes the Threadripper so special?

 

The Threadripper is simply a massive block of processing power. Sure, Intel was never in the ropes of creating something as powerful, but this is only because they only wanted to create a system of small yet innovative processors. I’m not saying AMD is not innovative. I’m just saying, AMD took a step forward, and changed the game – size is the winner here, and Intel just lost.

 

The Threadripper requires an all-new T-based socket, a specialized motherboard socket for its kind made only, and ONLY for something of its caliber. What, you expect a Vishera to fit there? The Threadripper sits on its throne of power there, ready and waiting for the next program and instruction to be delivered to it.

 

But what is it that makes it so complex really, despite its simplicity?

 

It’s so simple: The size!

 

If you look at the complexity of silicon chips, it takes so much processing innovation to create a processor so big and yet so powerful to function so well. When was the last time this was made? Oh yeah, remember the vacuum tubes? This is basically it: Vacuum tubes – but to the extremes, firepower ever possible in a computer chip. Though vacuum tubes relied on numbers just as the Threadripper does, it, however, relies on a new technology: the proprietary technology brought to us by the ever-advancing power and innovation of AMD.

 

Who is behind all of this?

 

We have the AMD team to thank for this. The scientists, the engineers, the president and CEO Lisa Su – all of them – if not for their innovative thinking, the Threadripper would be nothing more than an oversized vacuum tube.
