AMD Announces Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, 3970X and Ryzen 9 3950X

Ryzen 4000 Mobile APUs AMD Announces Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, 3970X and Ryzen 9 3950X

Unlike the Ryzen 9 3950X and Threadripper 3 line which are based on the new Zen 2 architecture, the two-core, four-thread Athlon 3000G is still based off the previous Zen+ architecture and will act as an upgrade for processors like the Athlon 200GE. That's mostly because they've been primed and ready to take advantage of the super fast PCIe 4.0 standard, and the sTRX4 platform will support a massive 72 PCIe 4.0 lanes in total.

Now, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X will be coming out alongside next-gen Threadripper processors on November 25 for $749 (about £580, AU$1,080). The new Ryzen Threadripper 3970X, for instance is $1,999 (about £1,560, AU$2,900), which is a huge ask, but last year's Threadripper 2970WX is already just $916 on Amazon in the United States, down a whopping $383 from its price back when it launched in August 2018.

The budget chip is available on November 19 and the rest will drop on November 25.

AMD said the two new Threadripper processors provide a performance boost of anywhere from 24 percent to 90 percent in various benchmarks over Intel's current-generation Core i9-9980XE, which will be refreshed with the forthcoming Core i9-10980XE later this month.

The TR 3960X comes with 24-cores, 48 threads, 140MB cache and a 3.8GHz/4.5GHz base/boost clock speed.

In terms of frequency, the Athlon 3000G has default base clock of 3.5GHz and three Radeon Vega 3 Graphics integrated graphics cores. We are seeing this kind of configuration for the first time in the mainstream market.

The AMD Threadripper 3970X is a 32 core, 64 threads CPU with a maximum clock speed of 4.5GHz and an overall cache of 144MB.

Instead, it's nearly certainly going to be in multi-core performance - although helpfully AMD have only provided me with figures on how it compares to Intel's chips so far, rather than any of their own.

According to AMD's own testing, the Ryzen 9 3950X should deliver up to 22% higher single-threaded performance compared to a Ryzen 7 2700X.

But, what about the Ryzen 9 3950X? Similar benchmarks also put the 3950X ahead of the Core i9-9900K and Core i9-9920X in DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere, Cinebench R20, Handbrake and other content creation applications. Its performance-per-watt is also 2.34 times greater than the 9900K.

Much like anything else in today's tech world, the Ryzen 9 3950X was leaked heavily.
