AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and 3970X Officially Released
It’s the release we’ve all been waiting for, eager users are now able to pick up the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and 3960X from today. We’ve been following the news of these processors eagerly over the last few weeks, with tidbits of information leaking slowly but surely. Now that these processors are officially released, we should start to see some solid benchmarking figures finally arise.
Threadripper 3960X And 3970X Release Specs
Starting off with the 3960X, this Ryzen model chip is a 24-core processor with 48 threads, a base clock speed of 3.8GHz and a turbo clock speed of up to 4.5GHz. The chip will also come with a total L3 cache of 128 MB and a TDP of 280W.
Moving on from the 3960X, the 3970X processor contains 32 cores with 64 threads, a base clock speed of 3.7GHz and a turbo clock speed of up to 4.5GHz. Additional specifications for this chip also include a total L3 cache of 128 MB and a TDP of 280W.
The 3960X is available now for prices of around $1400 and the 3970X for prices around $2000, depending on the retailer. With a lot of users eagerly waiting for these chips to be released for a while now, we wouldn’t be surprised to see stocks dwindle almost instantly.
We know just how hyped people have been for these processors to drop, with some users reportedly having built systems to house them already! With the 3970X coming up against Intel’s i9-10980XE in terms of performance, we should be able to see just how well it holds up over these coming weeks. We did have a taster of performance in a leaked benchmark previously, but seeing these figures for ourselves will be exciting.
