AMD 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadripper 2 Retail Boxes Pictured and Unboxing

AMD is known for some of the most interesting retail packagings. Earlier today the first images of the 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadripper Retail Box were spotted.

The new box features a rounded-rectangular front and rear side. A large acrylic window on the front, with polygonal bellows leading up to an inner case that shows off the processor as the centerpiece.

The first unboxing video of Threadripper 2 accidentally posted, though the original video has, in the meantime, been taken down, but of course, whatever hits the web, stays in the web, and screenshots abound that give us a taste of what to expect.

The unboxed processors are the 16-core Threadripper 2950X, and the sexier, 32-core Threadripper 2990WX. Reviewers will receive an additional dummy processor for display purposes.

The new Threadripper 2 looks identical to the first generation Threadripper silicon, housed in a plastic tray which looks like a high-tech shuttle from the future. Inside we can see some stickers and mounting bracket. One thing is for sure, AMD does know how to pack its flagship chips.
