Will the new AMD Ryzen 4000 have 4 threads per physical core? – It was not until July that AMD launched its super popular 7nm Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors, which apparently put Intel on the back burner, at least if we consider all reports of top retailers and specialists. .
However, now that products are already dominating the market, it's time to look into AMD's future… Or so to speak, the Zen 3 architecture that should be based on TSMC's 7nm + manufacturing process!
Which in addition to improvements in efficiency, transistor density and performance, will also bring massive changes to SMT capabilities that may even allow the use of 4 threads for each physical processing core.
Can you imagine a 32-core, 128-thread Ryzen 9 4950X?
People who talk about a Ryzen 9 4950X can also talk about a 64-core, 256-thread Threadripper or EPYC processor! Something that would undoubtedly be a monumental leap from the current EPYC Rome, which already has a resounding 64 cores and 128 threads.
Therefore, the 4 threads per processing core would be brutal for data centers, and scientific research. But they would also be very interesting for the average user if the feature hits the consumer market next year.
Still, we have to say that the technology is not as new as that… It's just that IBM already has 8 threads per core in its Power CPU architecture. Still, we have to say that AMD would be the first to implement such a thing in the x86 world.
We probably won't see this on the Ryzen 4000…
While this technology is super exciting, today's software is not yet ready for this massive number of threads on a single CPU. After all, the vast majority of games don't even use 16 threads, let alone 128.
