With the standard Ryzen lineup getting more and more cores and greater performance, some have begun questioning the fate of AMD’s Threadripper CPUs, whose claim to fame is monster core counts. A recent change in the ETA of the third-generation product sparked further speculation, but Dr. Lisa Su has put uncertainties to rest.

AMD’s CEO told reporters at Computex that Threadripper is alive and well. It is, however, going through what sounds like a substantial upgrade: “If mainstream is moving up, then Threadripper will have to move up, up—and that’s what we’re working on,” Su said.

“You know. it’s very interesting, some of the things that circulate on the Internet—I don’t think we ever said that Threadripper was not going to continue—it somehow took on a life of its own on the Internet,” Su said, speaking to a small group of reporters following her keynote. “You will see more [Threadripper] from us; you will definitely see more.”
