AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and Zen 2 Threadripper CPUs to launch November 25

The 16-core AMD Ryzen 3950X will be available on November 25th, alongside 3rd Gen Threadripper processors. Rounding off the 3rd Gen Ryzen family, the Ryzen 9 3950X, first announced at E3, comes equipped with the highest clock speeds and core count of the entire lineup to date, which AMD says will make it the best gaming CPU it’s ever made.

Initially the Ryzen 9 3950X had been planned for earlier in the year, but was delayed in September as the company focused on “meeting the strong demand” for its existing Ryzen 3000 processors. The wait is soon to be over, however, and this AM4-compatible chip will soon be available for purchase at $749.

The Ryzen 9 3950X will feature a boost clock of up to 4.7GHz, and a base clock of 3.5GHz across its 16 cores. It comes equipped with a total of 64MB of L3 cache, split across its twin, eight-core a piece, CCD chiplet layout. It will also support PCIe 4.0 as is the standard across all Ryzen 3000 processors when paired with an X570 motherboard.
