AMD: Next Gen Threadripper and Ryzen 9 3950X, Coming November
In a shock email late on Friday, AMD has released a statement to clarify the situation it is in with its latest Ryzen processors. There's a positive, that the next generation of Threadripper processors will enter the market in November, but the negative is that AMD is delaying its release of the 16 core Ryzen 9 3950X until November as well, citing a high demand for these parts and time is needed to ensure that sufficient stock is available.
The statement from AMD says:
We are focusing on meeting the strong demand for our 3rd generation AMD Ryzen processors in the market and now plan to launch both the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and initial members of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor family in volume this November. We are confident that when enthusiasts get their hands on the world’s first 16-core mainstream desktop processor and our next-generation of high-end desktop processors, the wait will be well worth it.
As far as we understand, this is nothing to do with recent reports of TSMC requiring 6 months for new 7nm orders: the silicon for these processors would have been ordered months ago, with the only real factor being binning and meeting demand. It will be interesting to see how the intersection of the 16 core with next gen Ryzen will play out.
