After a small delay, AMD has officially announced their upcoming high performance processors. First we have new flagship socket AM4 mainstream desktop processor, the Ryzen 9 3950X. This is a 16-core, 32-thread processor which will be compatible with all socket AM4 motherboards provided that they have the latest BIOS updated with AGESA Combo PI 18.104.22.168B microcode. As far as clocks are concerned you have a base clock of 3.50 GHz with a 4.70 MHz maximum boost frequency, and the same 105W TDP as the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X. There is 72MB of “total cache” (512 KB of dedicated L2 cache per core and 64MB of shared L3 cache).
AMD also put out numbers in not only gaming, but creator applications like Adobe Premier and Cinebench R20.
As you can see in 1080P gaming it is pretty much on par with Intel’s Core i9-9900K. When it comes to creator applications it definitely excels thanks to these applications being highly threaded and the high core count of the processor.
AMD will make the Ryzen 9 3950X available November 25th with a MSRP of $749.
