Retail leak hints at September 30th release date for AMD’s Ryzen 9 3950X

AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Generation processors may be impressive, but the best is yet to come. Yes, AMD has delivered 12 cores on AM4 with their Ryzen 9 3900X, but what if we go even further beyond? AMD’s Ryzen 9 3950X is due to release soon, and with it will come higher boost clocks, 16 cores and 72MB of total L2/L3 cache.

The Swiss retailer digitec.ch has listed AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X processor with a release date of September 30th. This suggests that AMD’s flagship AM4 Zen 2 processor will release at the end of this month; before Intel has a chance to release their i9-9900KS or X299’s Cascade Lake series of processors.  

With the Ryzen 9 3950X, AMD is bringing Threadripper-like core counts to AM4, complete with the IPC gains and efficiency gains that their Zen 2 architecture and 7nm manufacturing has provided. Below are the specifications of AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Generation (Zen 2) processors. 

We expect AMD to announce the Ryzen 9 3950X’s release date soon.
