The new desktop processors are the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series, and they are the first such Threadripper CPUs released to that market in the last few years. They were made under a 5nm process and are based on the company's “Zen 4” architecture.

AMD states in its press release: "The Threadripper 7000 Series is built to enable powerful I/O for desktop users, with up to 48 PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes for graphics, storage, and more. Capable of twice the memory bandwidth of typical dual-channel desktop systems, the quad-channel DDR5 memory controller on Ryzen Threadripper 7000 Series processors can support even the most intensive workflows."

One of the crypto currency's I monitor uses a random seed algorithm to solve the Block rather than a standardised, predictable, formula.

This makes the use of huge banks of high powered GPU's, all working with the same algorithm, mining coins(Bitcoin) redundant and offers smaller miners with multi CPU, muli thread, systems more opporutunity to propogate the Block, hence spreading ownership/control. Theoretically... Sure, big operator's can have multi CPU rigs but the cost/benefit wanes fairly quickly on low value tokens. And, with the next halving of Bitcoin imminent even they are becoming less attractive to monopolise.

Having said that, these Threadripper CPU's are the flavour of the month because of their performance in this area.

Overclocking AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 7000 series blows a fuse, indicating modification. However, AMD has told Tom's Hardware that this does not automatically invalidate the warranty of these top-tier workstation CPUs. From the report: "Threadripper 7000 Series processors do contain a fuse that is blown when overclocking is enabled. To be clear, blowing this fuse does not void your warranty. Statements that enabling an overclocking/overvolting feature will 'void' the processor warranty are not correct. Per AMD's standard Terms of Sale, the warranty excludes any damage that results from overclocking/overvolting the processor. However,
