In this new generation of 7nm CPUs, we're only getting two chips: the Threadripper 3960X and 3970X. If you like a CPU with more cores than your can shake a stick, step this way. Whereas the 3900X sports 12 cores and 24 threads for $499, the Ryzen 9 3950X comes with 16 cores and 32 threads for $749. This has a base clock speed improvement of 3.7 GHz but has the same turbo clock speed of 4.5GHz. We also have more details on the Ryzen 9 3950X ahead of the big launch on the 25th of November.
"With [Intel's] X-series announced pricing, certainly AMD does not feel like they have to undercut Intel anymore", Randy Copeland, CEO of Velocity Micro, a Richmond, Va. -based system builder that sells Intel- and AMD-based PCs, said. AMD's rival, which continues to hold most of the market share for desktop processors, is making significant price cuts, as much as 50 percent, for the new processors over the previous generation.More news: Bill Gates Criticizes Warren's Wealth Tax Plan
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. The chipset outperforms the Intel Core i9-9900K and the Intel Core i9-9920X on synthetic benchmarks like Cinebench R20 with up to 79 percent better performance. According to AMD, that's because it's been specifically optimised for 280mm or more liquid coolers this time as opposed to traditional tower-style fans. Similarly, the CPU also has an upper hand on professional software like Adobe Premiere as well. But you can still find some killer deals on an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X - just saying. The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is the last processor to be released under the Ryzen 3000 family.
By comparison, third-generation Ryzen 9 3950X CPUs have a Level 3 cache of 64MB and 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes, while Intel's Core i9 10980XE has a 24.75MB cache and 48 PCIe 3.0 lanes. Set to cost a massive $1399, it will have an identical 280W TDP as its even more expensive $1999 sibling, the TR 3970X. As before, there are 24- and 32-core variants, the TR 3960X and TR 3970X, respectively, with base clocks at 3.8GHz/3.7GHz respectively and a max boost speed of up to 4.5GHz. Both support up to 88 PCIe 4.0 lanes between the CPU and chipset, but they require the new TRX40 chipset for motherboards.More news: Hakimi brace seals stunning Dortmund win over Inter
