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...

Without question, AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and 3960X HEDT processors are absolute performance monsters offering up to 32 cores and 64 threads of computing muscle. We took a look at both processors in our review yesterday, and even managed to see some pretty nice gains with the [current] flagship Threadripper 3970X using Precision Boost Overdrive and Automatic Overclocking within Ryzen Master. However, someone with a lot more time on their hands -- and some exotic cooling hardware -- was able to get some insane overclocked frequencies from the Threadripper 3970X. In its stock form, the Threadripper 3970X has a base clock of 3.7GHz and a boost clock of 4.5GHz. However, TSAIK,... Read more...
Today marks the launch of new high-end desktop (HEDT) processors from both AMD and Intel, with each chipmaker cranking out new slices of silicon based on each one's latest generation CPU architectures. As such, the stage is set for yet another showdown between these two tech behemoths as they jockey for performance crowns, market share, mind-share, and in this particular space, bragging rights. In years past, all of those pretty much belonged to Intel, for the most part. But that all changed with the introduction of AMD's Zen architecture. The competitive landscape that now exists is not something we have seen since the Athlon 64 days, and I'd argue AMD is in a much better place now than it was... Read more...
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.
