Back at Computex 2019 just a few weeks ago, AMD seems to have wooed the audience at its keynote event by unveiling the new 3rd Gen Ryzen processor line-up which include the 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X. As it turns out though, the company still have another Ryzen 9 CPU under its sleeves.
At its E3 2019 event today, AMD has unveiled the second 3rd Gen Ryzen 9 model in the form of Ryzen 9 3950X. While it might have the same 105W TDP as per Ryzen 9 3900X, the new chip offers even more processing power through its 16-core/32-thread setup.
The new chip also comes with a slightly higher amount of cache at 72MB. Interestingly, the 3950X somehow has a lower base clock speed than 3900X at 3.5GHz even though its boost clock is still slightly higher at 4.7GHz.
While the 3rd Gen Ryzen processors will be released into the market on 7 July, the Ryzen 3950X will only arrive in September. Price-wise, the new chip will be available for USD 749 (about RM 3,117), so get your wallet ready.
