Ryzen threadripper 3970x 3960x price
As for the content of the 3rd generation Ryzen Threadripper processor and the possible release date, we finally have some reliable news. The news has been confirmed by the AOTS benchmark listed by Twitter user TUM_APISA yesterday.
We already know that the 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper CPU will launch alongside the new flagship Ryzen 9 3950X processor in November. However, based on reports from internal AMD leaks, let's first understand the release date of the new Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, 3970X and 3990X and TRX40 motherboards.
We also learned from news leaked on Twitter that Ryzen Threadripper will launch with a 24-core, 48-thread variant based on the 7nm Zen 2 core architecture. This is good news because it will allow more caching, bandwidth, and multitasking performance.
Until now, we don't know the naming scheme of the new AMD processors, except for the fact that they are the third generation. In the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark test, the CPU title is listed as AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X 24Core processor. This gives us a good idea of how the rest of the lineup looks in terms of names.
In theory, the 3960X naming scheme can be used to estimate the appearance of future models. For example, Ryzen Threadripper 3970X can have 32 cores and 64 threads, a Ryzen Threadripper 3980X can have 48 cores and 96 threads, and so on. Although this is currently purely speculative, based on the way Intel chose to number its X-series products, we can see that AMD's approach is similar.
We do not yet know the exact price and performance of these new CPUs, but since AMD hopes to dominate the market with its new AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series, these CPUs must be matched from the perspective of price and performance.
Although the improved TR4 + motherboard will introduce new enhancements and functions, the price is due to the modified chipset and socket, which may limit the implementation of the old series of AMD processors.
We may see these CPUs released on two different platforms, one for "enthusiasts" and one for workstations. The
TRX platform will have four-channel memory, UDIMM memory support, and a capacity of up to 256GB per channel. This is equivalent to approximately an impressive 1TB memory support! Support for 64 PCIe Gen 4 channels and 16 switchable channels will also be introduced. Group A
series processors will have 280 W TDP, Tcase Max temperature is 60 °C, Tctl Max temperature is 100 °C
The WRX80 series will be used in a series of dedicated workstations, and its specifications are recognized. The platform will support 1 DIMM channel, allowing up to 2TB of memory. Additional support for PCIe 96128 Gen4 lanes with 32 switchable SATA lanes will also be provided. The Group B
series processors will also have a TDP of 280W, a Tcase Max temperature of 81C, and a Tctl Max of 100C.
Now, with the increase in the number of multithreading, we will undoubtedly only see improvements in the 7nm process node. The performance of the 32 variant is reported to be 35 times that of the existing 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX chip.
When AMD upgraded from the Threadripper 1000 series to the 2000 series, we didn't see too many pricing opportunities between the processors. We hope the 3000 series continues this trend, but only time will tell.
We don't have the reliability performance data for these chips yet, but due to improvements from previous generations, we don't expect the 3000 series to disappoint.
