On November 5, AMD‘s undercover Threadripper plans have been leaked by Videocardz. The Company will declare the 3960X and 3970X with their accompanying TRX40 motherboards, and two weeks later they will available in stores. The curious 3990X will get an introduction but would not be completely disclosed until January 2020.
However, Videocardz could not able to get any new information about chips, we can figure out a sufficient amount from recent leaks.
Komachi got a product list confirming 24-core and 32-core Threadripper processors on Tuesday, the earlier of which Apisak assigned the 3960X title on Wednesday, forming the 3970X the 32-core giant. If an engineering trial Geekbench runs is to be believed, it will perform well, too.
Anyhow, it would be unusual for AMD not to impel their lead, they have probably won the high-end desktop (HEDT) market with November’s schedule. Intel‘s recently declared Cascade Lake-X HEDT processors extend from 10-cores at $590 to 18-core for $979, with 10 percent performance boosts over last- generation to match.
On the other hand, AMD’s 2-core 3900X is only $500 and the soon to be launched 16-core 3950X will be $750. Moreover, with the advancements of Zen 2, AMD nearly matches Intel on a per-core basis in related workloads.
Moreover, Launch in 24-cores and 32-cores and Intel’s 18-cores should be squeeze by performance (though may recent better value). What is AMD even taking part against? with 48-cores and 64-cores.
