AMD's first 3rd gen Threadrippers goes official

@ 2019/11/08
Threadripper 3960X and 3970X coming on November 25th

AMD has announced its 3rd generation Threadripper CPUs, and it will start with two SKUs, the 24-core/48-thread Threadripper 3960X, and the 32-core/64-thread Threadripper 3970X. Both will be coming along with the new TRX40 platform and are likely to be available on November 25th for $1399 and $1999, respectively.

AMD was keen to note that the company could not pass an opportunity to tap into the HEDT market with its Zen 2 CPU architecture, especially since the first and second generation got quite a bit of praise and quotes the market a lucrative one, at $1.2 billion.

Both new 3rd gen Threaripper SKUs are based on AMD's 7nm Zen 2 architecture and will fit the new TRX40 platform with the new sTRX4 socket, and offer support for ECC memory (depending on the motherboard). Both chips will also have a total of 48 PCIe 4.0 lanes, including 48 general-purpose ones, 8 for connecting to the chipset (chipset downlink), and 8 lanes for I/O.
