German overclocker and enthusiast Roman "der8auer" Hartung has successfully delidded a couple of AMD's latest generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, including the 3970X and 3960X. He then cleaned them up, applied thermal paste, and was successful in getting them to boot into Windows and run through Cinebench, though there were some hitches along the way. Before we get into all that, let's discuss the two Threadripper processors der8auer put under the knife, Both are based on AMD's Zen 2 CPU architecture. The Threadripper 3970X is the higher-end of the two, with 32 cores and 64 threads clocked at 3.7GHz to 4.5GHz, and 144MB of L2+L3 cache. As for the Threadripper 3960X, it sports 24 cores and...

In just a matter of weeks, AMD will unveil its third-generation Ryzen Threadripper series, starting with a 24-core/48-thread CPU based on its Zen 2 architecture. That's about all we know from an official standpoint. Unofficially, we have some Threadripper model names and specific release dates to share. Starting with the 24-core/48-thread part, a recent entry in the Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS) benchmark database suggests it will be dubbed Threadripper 3960X. As to the release date, and other SKUs, the folks at Videocardz claim to have obtained "highly confidential documents" from a source at AMD.

Somewhere within the Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS) benchmark database is a reference to an unreleased third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processor, the 3960X. Assuming the database entry is accurate, the Threadripper 3960X will hit the ground running with 24 physical cores and 48 threads of computing muscle, though there is no mention of the clockspeeds. Prominent leaker "APISAK" posted a snippet of the database entry on Twitter. Unfortunately, there are no other revealing details, such as the actual benchmark score or anything else that might help us find the listing ourselves (there's no way to sort through the massive database by CPU model names, so we'll leave this one to the Internet...
