We reported yesterday that AMD is rumored to announce its third-generation, Zen 2-based Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processor on November 7th. Although the official launch of the processors likely won't arrive for another few weeks, we're expected to learn specs and some performance details tomorrow. 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...

Motherboard manufacturers have been relatively mum about their plans for AMD's incoming third-generation Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors, but there have been a number of leaks regardless. This time around, MSI has left one of its upcoming TRX40 motherboards lurking in plain sight on its website.  MSI let the cat out of the bag on a promotional page that describes how you can get a $25 Steam promotional credit for submitting a review for one of its products. MSI notebooks, desktop, monitors, and motherboards are eligible, but it is what was found under the latter category that caught our eye. MSI listed the Creator TRX40 motherboard, which so far is an unannounced product.... Read more...
We know that AMD has third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors in route, and evidence of the pending launch is starting to mount. The latest new comes from respected leaker momomo_us, who uncovered some certification details for the processor family. Both AMD's new EPYC 7002 and third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors -- codename Rome and Castle Peak respectively -- gained PCI-SIG certification on August 23rd. As we saw with the Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 and EPYC 7002 families that came before it, the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors will support PCIe 4.0. However, at this time the only products that support the interface are Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards and... Read more...
Remember CrossFire? It‘s AMD’s counter to NVIDIA SLI, allowing enthusiasts to add multiple GPUs in an effort to split up the workload and improve overall gaming performance.  However, you may have noticed with the launch of the Radeon RX 5700 family that CrossFire support was not included on the graphics cards.  Not many people paid attention to this omission, and given AMD’s response when asked about it, you can see why.  AMD CEO Lisa Su was on hand this week at the Hot Chips 2019 conference and seemed to dismiss CrossFire for use in future graphics cards. "To be honest, the software is going faster than the hardware,” said Su. “I would... Read more...
AMD pretty much dropped a nuke on the desktop processor market with its new 7nm Zen 2 based Ryzen 3000 family of processors. As our review of the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 9 3900X showed, these processors offer strong single- and multi-core performance in a wide variety of applications, and AMD is being very aggressive with pricing compared to its Intel counterparts. So where does that leave AMD's Ryzen Threadripper family of HEDT processors? If a new report is accurate, the Zen 2-based Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors will start arriving in October. This news hails from DigiTimes, which says that its sources come from motherboard manufacturers familiar with AMD's plans. ... Read more...
Back in early May, AMD released a new, updated 2019 desktop processor roadmap that mysteriously left off third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors based on the 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. This absence was notable because AMD's previous March 2019 roadmap update featured the processors. Speculation ran rampant, with the popular opinion being that since the mainstream AM4 Ryzen 3000 processors were at the time rumored to be available in 12- and 16-core configurations, maybe AMD simply didn't need a separate Ryzen Threadripper lineup anymore. However, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su batted down those rumors at Computex 2019, stating, “I don’t think we ever said that... Read more...
