AMD on Thursday formally unwrapped two new Threadripper Three CPUs with 24 and 32 cores, respectively. The corporate additionally introduced an unlocked Athlon and stated its 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X will lastly go on sale on November 28.

The 2 new Threadripper CPUs are the most important information. AMD will promote a 24-core Threadripper 3960X for $1,399. The chip is constructed on a 7nm course of, options 140MB of cache, and may have a base clock of three.8GHz and enhance of 4.5GHz. The 32-core Threadripper 3970X, priced at $1,999, arrives within the wake of a lot undue hand-wringing that AMD would solely go to 24 cores.

Each CPUs will go into AMD’s new TRX40 platform utilizing the brand new sTRX4 socket. The usage of a brand new socket basically means the unique X399 chipset, together with the  Threadripper 2000-series, shall be stranded.

Insane quantities of PCIe lanes

The comfort might include an insane quantity of PCIe bandwidth. AMD stated as much as 72 lanes of PCIe can be found within the new platform. The block map the corporate confirmed off signifies 48 PCIe 4.Zero lanes may be dispersed for basic use. One other pair of x4 PCIe 4.Zero can be utilized for NVMe, or damaged up as two quad-clusters of SATA ports. With the chipset connection at a beefy Eight lanes of PCIe 4.0, you stand up to 64 from the CPU.

A lot of that sounds the identical because the earlier X399, which additionally featured 64 PCIe lanes off the CPU. The important thing distinction right here is PCIe 4.0, which doubles bandwidth over PCIe 3.0.

The opposite distinction is extra PCIe 4.Zero lanes within the chipset. AMD’s block map reveals Eight lanes of PCIe 4.Zero off the TRX40 chipset for basic use, and eight extra lanes of PCIe 4.Zero that may be cut up off. That’s principally 72 complete—AMD touts “88 lanes” of PCIe, however that’s provided that you depend the reserved lanes for chipset communication.

Quad-channel RAM stays put

The quantity of reminiscence channels for the brand new Threadrippers additionally seems unchanged, with as much as 4 channels of DDR4 supported on each CPUs. Whereas there had been hypothesis that AMD would go together with an eight-channel reminiscence configuration to coincide with an anticipated 64-core CPU, AMD didn’t say peep about extra reminiscence channel help (which might require an extra new platform) or a brand new CPU. So for now, Threadripper sticks with quad-channel reminiscence.

AMD says it’s going to be quick

AMD has lengthy had a core depend benefit over Core i9, however with the brand new, extra environment friendly Zen 2 cores within the Threadripper 3000 chips, the corporate additionally guarantees much more efficiency. For instance, AMD stated its 32-core Threadripper 3970X shall be as much as 90 % sooner in Cinebench R20 over an 18-core Core i9-9980XE. The 24-core will outpace Intel’s present greatest Core i9 by 54 %, the corporate added. AMD additionally claims an enormous benefit over the top-end Skylake-X chip in Chromium compiles, Unreal engine compiles, Adobe Premiere CC encodes and Chaos Group’s V-Ray renderer.
