AMD Threadripper 3rd Generation

AMD continues to impress with its new Desktop processor “Threadripper” third-generation CPU which is indeed an improvement on its predecessor.

What makes it a better performer than its 2nd gen predecessor?

The major difference between the two generations is the allocation of the memory controller. Previous gen processor allocated memory controller to certain memory die only. This resulted in the memory die without a memory controller to take an entire cycle in CPU to reach the ones with it.

Third Generation Threadripper has improved upon it by making a single I/O die which would have all the chiplets connected to. I/O die has PCX, memory access, SATA connection, and many more. Contrary to its predecessor, every chiplet can now access the memory directly and can contain 6 or 8 cores.
