AMD 3950X: Release Date & Where To Buy?

3950X Launch

 20th September 2019 Second Update: It’s been a busy day. AMD has announced today that the Ryzen 3950X will be delayed until November, where it will release alongside the new AMD Threadripper CPUs.

The official statement from AMD is as follows:

We are focusing on meeting the strong demand for our 3rd generation AMD Ryzen processors in the market and now plan to launch both the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and initial members of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor family in volume this November. We are confident that when enthusiasts get their hands on the world’s first 16-core mainstream desktop processor and our next-generation of high-end desktop processors, the wait will be well worth it.

I guess this might mean that AMD is going to use this time to focus on replenishing the stock of the Ryzen 3900X which many are still struggling to get ahold of. It’s not great news for those holding off building their ultimate computers for the new 3950X, however, it’s good that AMD has addressed the launch date.

If you are interested in purchasing the AMD Ryzen 3950X please bookmark this page, as we will keep updating our list of retailers as it gets closer to the launch date.

20th September 2019 Update: A flurry of international retailers have begun to appear with placeholder pages for the 3950X, no longer are these questionable retailers but legitimate nationwide retailers such as MWave in Australia. We found this placeholder page this morning on Mwave.com.au which shows the Ryzen 3950X retailing for $999.00 AUD and the entire product page looks ready to go live!

19th September 2019 Update: AMD is still being extremely quiet about the release of the 3950X, rumours are coming in but nothing concrete yet. We are keeping our eyes open throughout retailers worldwide, so keep checking back.

10th September 2019 Update: another Swiss-based retailer has published their placeholder page for the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X which you can see right here – EOS PC.

9th September 2019 Update: We’ve found Digitec.ch has a placeholder page for 3950X and also suggests the release date will be the 30th September 2019. However, please keep in mind a lot of retailers usually put the end of the month as a release date when it is yet to be confirmed, but who knows!

7th September 2019 Update: still nothing official from AMD, many are speculating the release will come after the release of AMD’s new BIOS update and few have gone to Twitter to say it will be the end of the month.

3rd September 2019 Update: not much to add, a few pages have been spotted in Turkey, Mumbai & Pakistan see below – but these seem like place holder pages so far.

With the launch of AMD Ryzen 3rd generation in July 2019, they also announced that we would be getting a beastly 16-Core, 32-Thread processor aimed at the mainstream which packs 72mb of L3 cache and a boost clock of 4.7Ghz whilst managing to maintain just 105W TDP. As expected, there are plenty in team red which is excited about this new chip (myself included). We already know that the 3950X absolutely smashes world records, equip this CPU with a top of the range GPU and 3600Mhz RAM and you will have yourself a deadly PC build.

So far we know the AMD 3950X will be priced at $749 (approximately £620 as of 2nd September 2019 / $1,115 AUD / $1,000 CAD) which is the price of an entire build for many PC enthusiasts, but with its record-breaking numbers, this chip is in a league of its own.

To be honest I think it’s more realistic that this will be another paper launch, after the disaster that was the Ryzen 3rd gen launch back in July 2019.

When will the 3950X be released?

We know it will be released in September, however, AMD has yet to announce the specific date. We can speculate that a 7th or 9th of September launch would make sense. As soon as we know, we will be updating it here though. Interestingly, Digitec.ch a Swiss-based retailer has launched a placeholder page for the Ryzen 3950X and has added a release date of the 30th September 2019.

    Oh, i really hope you add the links where to buy this thing in EU.
    I am moving there for a year (to Spain), know Spanish very poorly, and also well acquainted with people who spout nothing but doom and gloom about getting PC parts in EU. Scarce, and more expensive than NA.

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      Yes, Spain is on the list. It is indeed slower and harder to get PC components in Europe when compared to the US.

  2. AJ says:

    Netherlands release date please

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      Sure thing AJ, will look out for you. Any particular retailers?

      1. Frank says:

        The retailers which are likely to have stock are:
        Azerty.nl
        Alternate.nl
        Megekko.nl

        1. Ben Johnson says:

          Thanks, I will begin checking those.

  3. Samuel Aponte says:

    The amazon link just show the 3900. So i will have to wait until the 9 of September to see the processor? I just want that one. Am jumping from FX 9590 to that one. Thanks

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      Yes, we are watching the retailers very closely, waiting for the 3950X placeholder pages to go live.

  5. Alicia Potgieter says:

    Please add South Africa.

    1. Quintin Banister says:

      Hallo Alicia, Hoop dit gaan goed met jou.

      Moet nie teveel hoop op die cpu sit vir die volgende 4maande na die “launch date” nie. Ek het onlangs my 3900x gekry en baie baklei om hom hier te gekry het. Evetech , Wootware , Titan Ice , RebelTech , Computers Only ens ens… het glad nie stock vir maande gehad nie. Ek stel voor kry vir jou die 3900x sodra hy by een van die bogenoemde supplyers wys anders gaan jy nog vir baie baie lank sonder ‘n rekenaar wees.

      Groete
      Quintin

    2. Ben Johnson says:

      OK we will, any specific retailers?

  6. Jarkko Salomäki says:

    Hi! Have been refreshing the page every couple of hours, thank you! EU Market is what worries me a bit, hence I live in Finland, and it’d be awesome if you could also include us from land of ice and snow to your list 🙂 Have been without PC whole summer, cause I sold my PC just before computex, and of course AMD dropped this bomb right after…….

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      Sure, any specific retailers?

        1. Ben Johnson says:

          Thanks, I will begin checking.

  7. Paul says:

    Hi, do you have any information on Romania retailers? 🙂

    1. bodicelu says:

      I think it will be at cel.ro because 3900x was at cel too.

    2. Ben Johnson says:

      Not yet, but do you have any specific retailers?

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      Thanks bro, will add to the list.

      1. Misery says:

        That shop is from Switzerland and not Germany 🙂

        1. Ben Johnson says:

          Ah, the .ch confused me, I recall ch being for Switzerland, so I thought it was a German-language based Swiss website 😀

          1. Misery says:

            Yes, it’s a Swiss website with German as a language. In Switzerland you have a couple of different languages. All prices there are in CHF (Swiss Franks) and not Euro. They also only deliver to Switzerland, there is no option to choose another country. So it probably should be in the Swiss category not Germany 🙂

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      It should be approximately $749 exchanged into your main currency, if it is significantly more expensive, don’t worry many placeholder pages for retailers have random prices.

  8. Chase says:

    I’m doing another build I’m waiting to get the 3900x with 3600hrz ram and a 2080ti is this still a deadly combination in parts or should I go out and get the 3950x

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      It really depends what you are going to be using it for. I doubt there will be many advantages for gaming since most games won’t be utilizing the additional cores. If, however, you are rendering videos e.t.c then it might be worthwhile, but no one will really know until its released and we can begin benchmarking.

  9. Gambit says:

    Will the 3900x price drop when the 3950x releases? If so by how much?

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      I doubt it, the 3900X is priced at $499 whereas the 3950X will be priced at $749 all of this was already factored in when AMD launched the initial 3rd gen line up.

  10. Quinn says:

    As always Australia is left in the dust lol. Any ideas when the aussie retailers like https://www.mwave.com.au or https://www.pccasegear.com will have the 3950x in stock?

    1. Ben Johnson says:

      Quinn, just updated the article, we found MWave this morning 🙂
