AMD Ryzen 12-Core, 24-Thread CPU Shows Up In Sandra

We’ve been talking a lot about AMD’s upcoming HEDT Ryzen processors and it looks like they are already out in the wild. While we mentioned a 16-core, 32-thread chip it looks like there will be a 12-core, 24-thread chip too, as it has popped up in SiSoftware’s Sandra online results. These HEDT chips are really going to take on Intel’s HEDT parts and will work on the upcoming AMD X399 chipset. The machine detected that is using this CPU is the Alienware Area-51 R3. The R2 (product link) runs on Broadwell i7-6800/6850K processors.

The CPU in question is an engineering sample, coded as 2D2701A9UC9F4_32/27_N. The guys over at VideoCardz have done a great job explaining the naming of this chip and what everything means.


So one good thing to know is that this is not a server chip, it is indeed a desktop part. The sample is running at 2.7 GHz base with a boost clock of 3.2 GHz, not bad at all for a 12-core part! The part is a second generation engineering sample, but not yet a qualification sample. We are more than likely a few weeks out from seeing a qualification sample. Check out the results below…
