AMD 3960X & 3970X: Release Dates & Where To Buy?

3960X 3970X Launch Where to buy

12th November 2019 Fifth Update: We’ve just found the Amazon product pages for the 3960X & 3970X in Germany, France, Spain, and Italy along with the 3950X which you can find on our release date page here. Worryingly, it shows the 26th November as being the launch date on each country-specific Amazon product page, see below for more details. You can actually preorder the 3960X and 3970X from Amazon as well!

7th November 2019 update: AMD has today announced a release date for the Ryzen Threadripper 3960x & 3970x CPUs, they will be released on the 25th of November 2019 along with the 3950X 3rd gen CPU.

When will the 3960x & 3970x be released?

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960x & 3970x will both be released on the 25th of November 2019. The 3960x packs a 24-core processor with a base clock of 3.8 GHz and a turbo clock of 4.5 GHz with 140 MB Cache and will retail for $1,399. Whereas the 3970x will boast a 32-core processor and 4MB of extra Cache with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a turbo clock of 4.5 GHz and will retail for $1,999.

It seems to us that the 3960X will be the one to go for, the extra 4-cores and 4MB cache seems ludicrously expensive, having to spend an extra $600 for this performance.
