Ces 2020 schedule

One of AMD's latest Threadripper CPUs may have been leaked in a recent video showing motherboards that support them. The unreleased 64-core Threadripper 3990X may be released in 2020, but the video posted by MSI clearly shows it.

The video has now been removed and another version uploaded, but attentive consumers noticed the bug before it was too late. Although there have been rumors for some time that AMD has been developing 64-core CPUs, the almost official confirmation is exciting.

There is not much about 3990X nowadays. Initially, there were rumors that this processor will be released at the same time as the debut of the 32-core and 24-core processors, but then it was delayed; this may be the reason the processor is still featured in the MSI video, but in the end, we won't always know.

Aside from confirming the existence of 64core Threadripper, we have no further information, nor can we learn too much from the video. According to WCCFTech speculations, the design of the 3990X indicates that it will have a total of 288 MB of L2 + 3 cache and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes. If true, these numbers are very impressive and higher than any CPU we've seen before. Except for leak

, this is good news for AMD. Currently, the largest number of cores provided by Intel belongs to its i910980XE, but this is comparable to the number of cores in the 3990X.

This newfound prevalence helped turn AMD from a loser to a potential market leader. In the past, Intel had such an advantage. They could basically charge whatever they wanted. Now they are falling behind and we can see AMD doing the same. Can we see price cuts from Intel?
