They were the first to introduce to the market a 32 core/64 thread high-end (HEDT) processor, the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX based on the Zen+ architecture, using use a 12nm FinFET process. And this coming year in 2019, we’ll be seeing Zen 2 based processors using the latest cutting edge 7nm FinFET process.
