As anticipated, AMD adopted up the present launch of its Ryzen 9 Professional 3900 CPU for firms with a non-Skilled variant for purchasers, the Ryzen 9 3900. It moreover further fleshed out its latest know-how of Zen processors with new Ryzen 5 3500X processor.
Now we’ve got been anticipating the 3900 half since Biostar tipped its pending launch on its CPU help guidelines a number of weeks prior to now. It’s principally a lower power mannequin of the 3900X, one in all many finest CPUs for gaming, with slower clocks. It has 12 cores and 24 threads, a 3.1GHz base clock and 4.3GHz improve clock, and 64MB of L3 cache. It moreover has a 65W TDP.
Right here is how the specs study between the two:
- Ryzen 9 3900X—12 cores / 24 threads, 3.8GHz to 4.6GHz, 64MB L3 cache, 105W TDP
- Ryzen 9 3900—12 cores / 24 threads, 3.1GHz to 4.3GHz, 64MB L3 cache, 65W TDP
What intrigued us in regards to the 3900 was the prospect of buying a cheaper mannequin of the 3900X after which overclocking to make up the excellence, assuming a willingness to blow earlier the stock power envelope.
Sadly, AMD should not be releasing the 3900 as a standalone processor—it’s solely being made obtainable to OEM and system integrator (SI) shoppers. Which suggests it’s positive for prebuilt configurations, and by no means DIY builds (till a retailer will get its palms on some objects to advertise individually, which might most likely happen though you’ll need to produce your private cooler).
AMD moreover unveiled a Ryzen 5 3500X. This one may also be supply to OEM and SI shoppers, and is simply slated for launch in China (the 3900 is obtainable globally). This one is a 6-core/6-thread chip with a 3.6GHz base clock and 4.1GHz improve clock, 32MB of cache, and 65W TDP. Compared with the 3600X, the specs are the an identical, apart from the 3900 has a 100MHz elevated improve frequency and as well as has SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading).
