Photo of the day: a huge motherboard for the new AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors

The third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors should be presented on November 5, they will be available on November 19. According to the latest data, only three models will be presented to us: the 24-core Threadripper 3960X, as well as the Threadripper 3970X and Threadripper 3990X, but the latter will only appear in January.

You can also expect Threadripper 3980X, but there is no data about it yet. Recall that rumors on the Web claim that new CPUs will receive a new socket, that is, they will not be compatible with motherboards for Threadripper processors of the first and second generation.

This has not yet been confirmed, and it is not very clear why this can happen, given that the newest Epyc, which will be the analogues of the upcoming Threadripper, use the old socket.

Be that as it may, we had the first photograph of the system board for the new AMD CPUs. This is some kind of Gigabyte Aorus model. Judging by the photo, we have an E-ATX format board.

She will receive four PCIe x16 slots and eight slots for installing RAM modules. You can also see a massive port block and a fan on the chipset.
