I have said here many times that AMD is having a fantastic 2019 year! Which is largely due to his perseverance, but also to Intel's failures in recent times. That said, now that AMD sees some power in its hands, it's time to stretch the rope to its fullest!
So it turns out to be curious to see what AMD CTO (Mark Papermaster) said to the press by basically announcing that the next generation of processors will feature even more processing cores!
16 cores is a lot? Is that AMD will further increase the number of cores in 2020!
Therefore, one of AMD's top managers says that microprocessor manufacturers don't have to slow down just because the software doesn't take advantage of all the parallel processing of the latest solutions.
So very briefly, it is the companies that develop the software that have to catch AMD, not the other way around.
After all, the demand for such products exists! By the way, just look at the success of the Ryzen 9 3900X and more recently the Ryzen 9 3950X with its 16 cores and 32 threads that sold out in mere minutes. Now read the statements:
“I don't see any imminent barrier in the mainstream market. It is just a matter of software starting to utilize all the potentials of multi core processing. Something that is already starting with many heavy computational applications. ”
“In short, I don't see any saturation point for adding more and more physical processing cores. Of course we have to pay attention to current software, whether or not it can take advantage. Very basically keep a certain balance. But we have no intention of stopping as long as we can keep this strategy alive. ”
AMD will further increase the number of cores by 2020! "Besides, what do you think about all this?" Share with us your opinion in the comments below.
