Another Geekbench database results for suspected releases this time around we have what may be AMD’s new Threadripper featuring its all new Zen 2 architecture used for its 3rd-gen Ryzen CPU. As with previous generations, we’ve had accompanying releases for the mainstream CPU with HEDT releases dubbed Threadripper. Speculations have arisen that a new result from benchmark software Geekbench’s online database featuring the codename “AMD Sharkstooth” may be the new HEDT processors. The chip in question features 32 cores and 64 threads and has a nominal clock speed of 3.6Ghz. The long form model code for the CPU is “AuthenticAMD Family 23 Model 49 Stepping 0″ and this does not conform to any of the 2nd-gen AMD EPYC processors so that may point to it being a consumer-segment Ryzen Threadripper product.

The platform reported in the uploaded results is a motherboard featuring 128GB of memory. The board is designed in-house by AMD is codenamed WhiteHavenOC-CP. The in result submission, the setup is tested on 64-bit Linux and yields a multi-threaded score of 94,772. This is 18.5% higher than the previous-gen Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX, also a 32-core, 64-thread part. AMD is also reported to be developing new boards and these boards are expected maintain backwards compatibility with AMD X399. The new chipset will have PCI Express 4.0 support and have beefier VRM for the CPU. Memory specification will be higher thanks for improved memory/PCIe wiring specs and PCIe link stability.
