An on-line retailer in Switzerland may perhaps presumably well well also simply assemble published the originate date for AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X processor. In accordance the unique product listing, the 16-core/32-thread beast is attributable to originate on in two and half weeks on September 30, 2019, per “legit files from AMD,” if a Google translation of the text is exact.
The Ryzen 9 3950X is a charming chip, as its core and thread counts keep it in high-end desktop (HEDT) territory. Nonetheless, here’s not a Threadripper CPU—AMD has but to originate a brand unique round of Threadripper processors per its Zen 2 architecture (they’re coming, despite the indisputable truth that). Technically, the Ryzen 9 3950X is a mainstream desktop processor.
Or not it’s additionally an fanatic SKU. AMD unveiled the grisly chip at E3 in June, asserting it rocks 16 cores and 32 threads of computing muscle clocked at 3.5GHz to 4.7GHz, along with a whopping 72MB of total cache. It additionally has a 105W TDP.
Later that identical month, a user claimed to assemble done a 5.4GHz overclock on all 16 cores at 1.77 volts, on what turned into presumably an engineering sample. At that perambulate, it posted an Cinebench R15 safe of 5,501 in the multi-core test. That is elevated than the safe noticed for the duration of an AMD-sanctioned tournament, wherein an overclocked Ryzen 9 3950X posted a multi-core safe of 5,434 in Cinebench R15.

For basically the most half, Intel silent holds an profit in IPC (instructions per clock) efficiency, as we saw in our shootout between a Ryzen 9 3900X and Core i9-9900K. Nonetheless, in multi-threaded workloads, AMD has a clear profit at a whole lot of price parts, because it simply provides extra cores and threads per greenback than Intel’s lineup.
