The chipset that meets the Creator TRX40 name appears on the company's official website MSI And verifies the reports we have heard in the past - but it seems that this change of branding will also bring with it a change in compatibility back in the generationThreadripper 3000, although there is no change in physical bracket
The launch of the third generation Threadripper, With the 24 cores processor as the model to lead the attack in the first phase, Is just around the corner - and with it the launch of new chipsets under the names TRX and WRX which will replace the chipset X399 Which accompanied the first generation duo.
On TRX80, TRX40 and WRX80 We first heard more than a month ago about some leaks, And now a company MSI Validates the existence of the basic chipset in the new family, TRX40, On its official motherboard website - still without supporting products that appear in the category at this time, but it seems that it can no longer be claimed that this is an invention or an error.
Another recent report on the subject from several different sources on the network states that the shift from branding similar to that of Intel for chipsets to branding that will be personal and exclusive for AMD will also bring an end to backward compatibility between the company's HEDT generations - TRX40 chipsets will not support first-generation Threadripper processors The second, while the X399 chipsets will not be supported Third-generation Threadripper processors. In other words, those looking to upgrade (or save some money by purchasing an older component) will have to upgrade both the processor and motherboard at the same time - despite the fact that we are left with the same physical TR4 chassis that accompanied us in past generations.
the mother AMD Will you justify the lack of backward compatibility in the current incarnation? Over the next month, the official launch is expected and with the answers, we hope.
