AMD seems to have affirmed that it will dispatch the creator centric 64-core Threadripper 3990X chip at some point in 2020, as reputed. The organization didn’t discharge numerous subtleties, other than to state it’ll have 64 cores and 128 threads, 288MB of total cache and consume 280 watts (TDP).
The 3990X will probably be AMD’s workstation answer to its server-oriented EPYC 7742. In that capacity, it’ll have eight chiplets with eight cores each, while the 24-and 32-core 3960X and 3970X CPUs we saw before have four chiplets with four and six cores, individually.
Regardless we don’t have a clue whether the 3990X will have eight-channel memory with 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes like the EPYC or quad-channel memory and 64 PCIe 4.0 paths like the 3960X/3970X. Additionally, AMD hasn’t said whether it’ll run on the equivalent “Socket sTRX4” stage as those two chips, or on the off chance that it will utilize the EPYC SP3 socket, or even an all-new stage. In view of a prior MSI leak, the conceivable situation is 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes running on the equivalent sTRX4 stage as the 3960X and 3970X.
The entirety of the Threadripper chips are planned not for gaming, however video editing, 3D animation and other content creation tasks. Here, AMD is pounding Intel, besting the i9-10980XE and i9-9980XE in many benchmarks while devouring less power.
Intel ought to be stressed, as it’s seeing AMD colliding with key territories like servers and workstations. Despite everything, it overwhelms territories like gaming (in spite of the fact that AMD’s most recent standard Ryzen chips genuinely shut the gap there this year), while AMD is as yet battling with overclocking, as indicated by the most recent surveys. In any case, Intel should conquer yield issues with both 14-and 10-nanometer parts or AMD will begin having its lunch there, as well.
