We have got been listening to concerning the upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X for months now. Initially set to launch in October, that was pushed as soon as extra to November 25, when it must be a part of the ranks of top-of-the-line CPUs for gaming (and completely completely different duties). It is also the an similar week as Black Friday provides, although I significantly doubt we’ll see any product gross sales on the newcomer. The truth is, if it follows contained in the footsteps of the 3900X, it should in all probability promote out by the preliminary availability half.
November 25 would possibly even see the introduction of two new third interval Threadripper components, the 32-core/64-thread 3970X and the 24-core/48-thread 3960X. It is good that the naming has been consolidated, as there’s no need for a 16-core/32-thread Threadripper this spherical. Positive, quad-channel reminiscence would possibly assist some workloads, nonetheless such a chip simply is not contained in the plans appropriate now (so far as I do know). On the completely completely different finish of the spectrum is a mannequin new worth range good Athlon 3000G processor which is able to help overclocking, in distinction to the Athlon 200GE. Let’s hit every of those knowledge bits.
