AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, 3970X Zen 2 CPUs Listed Early Online
With that said, the incredibly dedicated hardware sleuth @momomo_us uncovered product listings for two alleged members of the Threadripper 3000 family: the Threadripper 3960X and Threadripper 3970X. The product listings that were originally posted on Wootware's retail site before they were yanked. However, Extreme IT was able to secure screenshots before that takedown occurred.
While we can't verify the specifications presented by these product listings, it's alleged that the Threadripper 3960X has 24 cores, 48 threads, and base/boost clocks of 3.5GHz and 4.7GHz respectively. As for the Threadripper 3970X, it offers up 32 cores and 64 threads along with a base clock of 3GHz and boost clock of 4.2GHz. Both processors are said to include 32MB L2 cache, 256MB L3 cache, a TDP of 250 watts, and make use of the TRX4 socket.
Again, there's no way that we can verify these figures, but we won't have long to wait if the November 7thannouncement day is accurate.
Based on our previous reporting, Threadripper 3000 TRX4 HEDT processors will be compatible with TRX40 motherboards. TRX4 processors will also allegedly support quad-channel DDR4-3200 memory (two DIMMs per channel), and up to 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes.
According to AMD, the 24-core/48-thread Threadripper 3960X will be the most potent of its Zen 2 HEDT processors released, at least initially. The 32-core/64-thread Threadripper 3970X will arrive at a later date. And if the rumors are accurate, there may even be a 64-core/128-thread Threadripper 3990WX on the horizon as well.
