We’ve heard rumors about the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor, and now it has been confirmed by Videocardz. This is set to be the 64-core consumer processor that offers incredible horsepower for power users, and in this article we’ll breakdown what you can expect from it when it launches.
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor packs 64 cores and 128 threads, and it is slated to launch at some point in 2020. This puts it in a league of its own on the HEDT platform, and should be a showstopper when it finally does hit the market.
AMD has confirmed that 288 MB of total cache will be included in the processor, as well as lots of PCle Gen 4 lanes 9 (~128) and a TDP of 280W. It may feature slightly lower base clocks to accommodate for the TDP, but this is speculation at this point. 8 Zen 2 CCDs are also included to account for the 64 cores, which is double of the recently-launched 3970X and 3960X.
Much more information on the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X will be coming at CES 2020, which kicks off early next year. We also don’t have an official price point yet, though that is expected to be somewhere around the $3,000 range. We’ll bring you more information as it rolls out early next year.
