AMD announced the third generation of its Ryzen thread ripper for November, but now one of these high-end desktop CPUs has emerged for the first time. An image shows a Ryzen Threadripper 3960X with 24 cores and this naming allows some speculation, since the last 24-wheeler was called 2970WX.
This means that AMD became a bit more airborne with the name ̵
This gives more room for naming when 3970, 3980 and / or 3990 come with more than 24 cores. Some speculate that the new Ryzen wire rips will appear with more than 32 cores and may even be equipped with 64 cores as EPYC 7000 server processors, which are also built with their chiplet design or multi-chip module with two CPU dies under a heatspreader.
Details of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X – with the exception of the number of cores – unfortunately does not reveal the image, but this processor was supposed to be the start level of the third wire rip generation, which AMD announced last month that the new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs will be available with at least 24 cores when they release in November.
Arctic has released Freezer 50 TR presented a new cooler for Ryzen Threadripper and the packaging reveals that it can even cool 64 cores.
