The top-of-the-range AMD CPU for the consumer market, the Ryzen 9 3950X, would go on sale next September 30th, or so the German store lists it Digitec, which adds a label of 999 euros, a price far away from the recommended price of about 799 euros which was indicated in its day (US $ 749). Although the date is within the deadline, since the CPU will launch sometime in September, now it's time to know if the price has been set to fill or if it will really come at a price that will not be affordable at all.
Remember that the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X It's a performance beast, and it offers nothing less than 16 cores and 32 processing threads thanks to its chiplet design, which translates into incorporating two dies of 8 Zen2 cores each attached to the 14nm Die I / O controller under the encapsulation. These cores will reach a Base / Turbo frequency of 3.50 / 4.70 GHz backed by nothing less than 77 MB cache and giving rise to a TDP of just 105W. How could it be otherwise, a weld will join the three silicons with the encapsulation for perfect cooling.
In terms of connectivity, it will give access to a total of 40x PCI-Express 4.0 lines, and promises to eclipse the Intel Core i9-9960X, which arrives with 16 cores and 32 wires @ 3.10 / 4.40 GHz with 22 MB cache and a TDP of 165W At a price of $ 1,699.99. Now it is unknown if AMD will maintain the official price or take advantage and increase prices knowing that Intel has nothing to offer to cope.
