  • AMD will share details on its next generation of Threadripper processors "soon."
  • An AMD chief executive shared at the Hot Chips conference that details will come in 2019.
  • The same executive added that CrossFire is "not a significant focus."

AMD's Lisa Su shared at the Hot Chips Conference at Stanford University that details on future Threadripper processors will come "soon." Su later clarified that more information will be provided in 2019 following several questions from Anandtech's Ian Cutress (via PCWorld.

AMD's Threadripper processors are powerhouse chips for enthusiast PC builders. The second generation of Threadripper chips ranged all the way up to 32 cores and clock speeds of 4.2GHz. Those processors were first detailed over a year ago, so newer processors will deliver even better performance.

Su was also asked about AMD's CrossFire, to which she responded, "I would say that GPU performance will continue to go at a very fast pace... It's not a significant focus."

Few details have been shared so far from AMD on the Threadripper and CrossFire lines, but we'll likely see more details soon.
