AMD’s 24-core Ryzen Threadripper 3960X has been spotted

AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 3960X has been spotted in the wild, offering users 24 cores alongside the company’s Zen 2 architectural improvements and the efficiency of TSMC’s 7nm manufacturing. 

This leak came via TUM_APISAK, a renowned hardware leaker who spotted the processor on the Ashes of the Singularity benchmarking database. With this, we know the name of AMD’s 24-core 3rd generation Threadripper processor; and from that, we can guess at the naming scheme of the remainder of AMD’s Threadripper lineup. 

If the Ryzen Threadripper 3960X offers 24 cores, we can guess that the 3970X will offer 32 cores, the 3980X can offer 48 cores, and the 3990X can offer a staggering 64 cores. At this time the pricing of AMD’s upcoming 3rd generation Threadripper lineup is unknown. We do know that AMD will start releasing these processors in November, starting with their 24 core model.  

Thanks to AMD’s new multi-die Zen 2 architecture, 3rd Generation Threadripper processors are likely to lack most of the downsides of the company’s existing Threadripper lineup. Memory channels will not be split across multiple CPU dies, and inter-core latencies will be reduced. Thanks to AMD’s 7nm Zen 2 CPU chiplets, 3rd Generation Threadripper processors will also be able to achieve more performance with its power budget due to increases in power efficiency. Combine this with Zen 2’s IPC boosts and AMD’s onto a winner.
