As an approximate, model too Threadripper 3980X is on the chip developer's menu - and will bridge the capabilities and price gap between the model with 32 processing units and the leading model with 64 cores
Laboratory-Threadripper The formidable 3970-core 32X was officially launched last month and picked up the crown of performance in a wide range of exams as part of the HEDT (High End Desktop) category, and the CPUThreadripper The 3990X is expected to arrive sometime in the coming months and drive the home market into a frenzy in the full sense of the word with an absolutely first-of-its-kind ability to operate 64 state-of-the-art processing cores in a home configuration (quite expensive, apparently). Between these two there will be a very significant performance gap and price gap - so it is safe to assume that there will be the launch of another version between them: the CPUThreadripper 3980X.
Anyone who is aware of how the latest Zen 2 architecture is built from home AMD Could probably have come to this conclusion on their own, but now we get reports that reinforce the assumption that the Threadripper 3980X is real, found in the plans of the red chip developer for the near future - and will also come with 48 physical processing cores (which are 20 cores more than it can provide Intel Its top-end server processors) and 96 logical processing units thanks to SMT technology.
A mention for the Threadripper 3980X appeared, prima facie, In the latest version of the popular CPU-Z application that provides complete and detailed technical data for the main processing units on which it is installed, and with no official additions, this model can be assumed to contain 256 megabytes of memory L3 cache (like the Treadripper 3990X), 280 watt power casing, controller memory Square channels with 3,200MHz frequency support and 64 arteries PCI-Express (Like all other third-generation TR processors).
Without an official announcement it's hard to guess exactly when this formidable model might join the 3990X in stores - but with an expected price of more than $ 3,000 it certainly won't suit everyone, just like its 64-core brother that will likely carry a price tag of $ 4,000 and up.
So how many cores do you need in your next home system? Let's talk about it.
