AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and 3970X in approach

- Categories : News products

The AMD group had promised the first high-performance Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors in Zen 2 architecture engraved in 7 nm for the HEDT segment in November, so two references are emerging. For this third generation, the firm formalizes the existence of Ryzen Threadripper 3960X processors in 24 cores / 48 threads and 3970X in 32 cores / 64 threads for solutions with a TDP of 280 Watts.

They are clocked at 3.7 or 3.8 GHz in basic frequency and rise to 4.5 GHz in Boost. Note the compatibility with PCIe 4.0 88-line interface (when Intel remains on PCIe 3.0 on all of its solutions) and the presence of 140 to 144 MB of cache.

AMD promises improved 90% performance for its Ryzen Threadripper 3970X versus an 18-Core Intel Core i9-9980XE (on Cinebench R20) and increased performance from 33 to nearly 50% across different applications. Processors will benefit from the new sTRX4 socket within the TRX40 platform with multi-GPU support (Crossfire and SLI), quad channel DDR4 memory with EEC error correction capability and up to 12 supported USB 3.2 ports.
