At the event, AMD introduced the top and bottom end-user processors and raised the curtains of the new generation Threadipper series. In contrast to the previous demonstrations, the third generation Threadripper series opened with two models.
The Threadripper 3 series, based on the Zen 2 architecture in the 7nm process, was eagerly awaited, as it showed a 64-core display on the EPYC server processors. AMD, this time, second-generation Threadripper processors, leaving space slightly above the third generation Threadripper processors.
The first processor in the series is the Threadripper 3960X and, as expected, the Ryzen 3 series continues from where it ends. The 24-core and 48-core processor has a base speed of 3.8GHz. With the turbo up to 4.5GHz level. TDP value was announced as 280W. The $ 1399 price tag is set for the Threadripper 3960X, which has a total of 140MB of Level 2 and Level 3 cache.

The Threadripper 3970X i processor comes with 32 cores and 64 threads. The processor has a base speed of 3.7GHz and a turbo speed of 4.5GHz and has a TDP of 280W. The price of this processor is set at $ 1999. So the opening of third generation Threadripper processors was made over $ 1000. The release date is November 25.
In the first two generations, AMD set an aggressive price policy and was very successful in the performance-oriented computing systems segment. This time, the company does not want to interfere with the second generation of Threadipper processors and says that the currently highly competitive series will be preferred. So third-generation Threadipper processors will be a bit of an extreme choice. It is not known how this move will affect the new Intel Core X processors, but there is also the expectation that AMD will go for a discount for the second generation.
Third generation Threadipper processors are based on multi-chip technology like EPYC ROME processors. Each of the 4 packages contains 6 or 8 Zen 2 cores. The 14nm I / O controller chip provides a 5-pack structure.
The new processors will use the sTRX4 socket based on the TRX40 chipset. The 4-channel DDR4 memory supports up to 2TB of capacity. There is no socket support between Threadipper generations, but there is cooler between them. This means that TR4-compatible coolers also work in the sTRX4 socket. There are 48 direct PCIe x16 lines, 8 PCIe 4.0 x8 lines for 8 chipsets, 8 lines that can be used as M.2 NVMe or SATA for general purposes and 88 lines in total. The TRX40 chipset is produced by GlobalFOundries during the 12nm process.
