The first pictures of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2000 series packaging have been leaked by Videocardz. The next-generation of AMD HEDT processors will be released soon and we have already got word about the specifications, but today, we get our first good look at the packaging for AMD’s high-end desktop chips.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2000 Series Packaging Leaks Out – Bigger and Badass, Just Like The 32 Core Behemoth
When AMD released their first generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, we got to see two new things. First was obviously the processor itself which was a disruptive product for the market, the second thing was the gorgeous packaging that the chip was shipped inside. It was a good relief from the box styled packages that CPUs had previously shipped in, but it looks like AMD is going all out with their 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper processors.
Most people thought the new Ryzen Threadripper 2000 series would use re-use the packaging from the Threadripper 1000 series CPUs, but it was wrong. The new packaging is mean, and it looks freaking awesome. We can expect the Threadripper 2000 series CPUs to be hidden behind a see-through window, as you can see in the above shot.
The CPU is surrounded by a polygon-themed mountain that is covered in fire, it’s that hardcore. The front of the package opens up to reveal the CPU, with a small shelf where AMD has placed all of the tools, stickers, and manual. On the back, AMD says the new Ryzen Threadripper is “Unlocked. Unrestrained. Uncompromising”. Expect full details and reviews on the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and other second-gen Threadripper CPUs in the coming weeks.
