  1. AMD introduces the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X for $3,990 AMD is starting off 2020 with quite a bang. After it introduced the Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors, the company also announced the latest member of the Ryzen Threadripper family. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is the world's first 64-core, 128-thread HEDT processor, with a base clock speed of 2.9GHz and a boost speed of up to 4.3GHz. It also has a total of 288MB of cache. All of this amounts to a huge bump in performance over AMD's next best HEDT processor, the Threadripper 3970X introduced late last year. Specifically, in Cinebench R20, the Threadripper 3990X gets an average score of 25,399, whereas the 3970X gets 16,334. Of course, AMD also compared the chip to its competition, except there's no direct competitor. Instead, the company compared the processor to a setup of two Intel Xeon Platinum 8280, which have a combined total of 56 cores and 112 threads. For the same V-Ray workload, AMD's chip took one hour and 3 minutes to complete the task, while the Intel setup took one hour and 30 minutes. What's especially impressive about that, of course, is the price. The two Intel Xeon processors would have cost you $20,000. From that perspective, the $3,990 price of the Threadripper 3990X starts to seem justified. If you work with this kind of workload and you're interested in the new Threadripper 3990X, it'll be available in almost exactly one month, on February 7.

  2. wow, it's hot in your office — Hands-on with AMD’s 32-core, 64-thread Threadripper 3970x AMD's monstrous new ThreadRipper hammers Intel everywhere it counts—except AI. First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all images. AMD's new 32-core/64-thread Threadripper 3970x continues AMD's 2019 trend of sweeping the field in desktop and server processors. In recent weeks, Ars has tested Threadripper head-to-head versus Intel's top-of-the-line i9-10980XE High End Desktop (HEDT) CPU, as well as its i9-9900KS gaming CPU. To nobody's surprise, the Threadripper is faster—a lot faster—than either, although with some caveats. Power When comparing the rest of the Ryzen 3000 line to Intel's 2019 desktop CPU lineup, one of the standout metrics is thermal design power (TDP). Non-threadripper Ryzen 3000 CPUs meet or beat the Intel desktop lineup on performance and TDP, which means quieter, cooler systems that don't cost as much to keep running. All that changes once you leave the "normal" desktop line and go Threadripper. With Threadripper, AMD is clearly far more concerned with raw power than niceties like running quiet or cool. First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all images. The above chart shows the whole system power draw as measured by a Kill-a-Watt power meter. Power draw was tested at minimum shown idling for one minute at the Windows 10 desktop and maximum during Passmark all-core CPU benchmarking. Just for fun, we also did a little testing of the Threadripper with Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) automatic overclocking enabled. The difference between default and PBO boosted clocks is more clear at the power meter than it is in the benchmarks themselves. Maximum power draw shoots up by about 20-25% with PBO enabled, but the actual performance hardly changed in most benchmarks.

Please visit the source link to see all images. In the above performance charts, we go head to head with some Intel parts. Some test results were sourced from public leaderboards and are marked by an asterisk next to the CPU name. Results for Threadripper 3970x, i9-10980XE, and i9-9900KS were taken directly by Ars. The results show you just what you're buying with that extravagant power draw—a system that kicks dirt in Intel's HEDT parts and runs away laughing. For general-purpose CPU performance evaluation, we like Passmark's CPU test. Threadripper 3970x doesn't quite double i9-10980XE's score there, but it comes pretty close. Moving on to Cinebench R20—which is more appropriate for specific graphics-rendering and content creation evaluation—the Threadripper didn't just beat Intel's HEDT line, it even eked out a narrow victory over the top-of-the-line Xeon Platinum 8168. That "victory" is more of a draw within the margin of error, but the reason it matters is clear in the next chart, where we show the Cinebench R20 performance-per-dollar by dividing each CPU's score by its retail price. Normally, you'd expect to pay a pretty sharp penalty moving from HEDT-grade to high-end server-grade CPUs—but the 3970x delivers equivalent performance to the 8168 at under a third of the cost. Meanwhile, although it's roughly double the cost of the 10980XE, it's also roughly double the performance. AI inference workloads Enlarge / The advantage conferred by Intel's software development work in the AI space is extremely clear. Yes, OpenVINO is an Intel-developed project—but it handily outperforms Tensorflow, on either AMD or Intel CPUs. Jim Salter The one place that Threadripper 3970x did not get a victory is in AI inference workloads. We tested Threadripper against the i9-10980XE using the OpenVINO toolkit and AIXPRT's reference configurations, and the advantage conferred by Intel's Deep Learning Boost (DLB) x86 extension was stark. Although it's a much less performant processor for general-purpose workloads, the i9-10980XE was able to deliver double to triple the image recognition inference throughput. In testing with Tensorflow (results not shown), the 3970x performed roughly on-par with the 10980XE—which is still a serious upset, from a CPU that's normally half the performance (and half the price) of the 3970x.

  3. AMD announces third-gen Threadripper processors with up to 32 cores It's been expected for some time, but AMD has officially announced the third-generation of Ryzen Threadripper processors today. In the announcement video, AMD CEO Lisa Su says the processors are faster in every workload and that it's the fastest desktop processor in the market. The new Threadripper lineup comes in two models, starting with the 24-core, 48-thread Threadripper 3960X. It has a base clock of 3.8GHz, with boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, 140MB of total cache, and 88 PCIe lanes, all in a package with a TDP of 280W. It also supports quad-channel memory. The higher-end model is the Threadripper 3970X, which has 32 cores and 64 threads. The base clock is slightly lower, at 3.7GHz, but it can still boost up to 4.5GHz, and it increases the cache to 144MB. It has the same number of PCIe lanes and the same TDP as the 3960X. Both processors are built on a 7nm process and based on the Zen2 architecture, promising up to 15% more efficiency on all cores. In terms of performance, AMD shows the new Threadripper processors crushing last year Core X offerings from Intel, but it's worth noting that the blue team already announced an updated lineup last month. AMD's new processors are hitting the market on November 25, and the Threadripper 3960X will cost $1399, while the Threadripper 3970X will go for $1999. That's interesting because Intel's new Core X-series processors top out at just under $1000, and the performance is likely to be better than last year's models, which AMD used in its comparison.

  4. Images of what appears to be packaging boxes of AMD's upcoming third-generation Threadripper processors have leaked, and it seems like the company is set to continue the tradition of fancy-looking packaging for Threadripper CPUs. The leak indicates that the launch of Threadripper 3000 series processors is nearly upon us and in fact, Videocardz alleges that these, alongside the accompanying TRX40 chipset motherboards, may be launching as early as tomorrow. A previous report had mentioned a possible November 5 announcement which has evidently been pushed back. As reported earlier, the Threadripper 3990X is reportedly launching later with only a teaser awaiting us at the alleged launch tomorrow. Information on the pricing of these HEDT parts has still managed to elude us but we could expect to see some competitive pricing judging by AMD's past practices. Source: 1.

  5. About a month ago, AMD officially revealed via a Twitter post that the company's third-generation Threadripper HEDT CPUs will be launching sometime in November this year. Today, Videocardz reports that they have received further information about the possible launch dates and the names of Threadripper 3000 series SKUs. As per this report, AMD plans to launch three Threadripper models: Threadripper 3960X Threadripper 3970X Threadripper 3990X The 3960X is likely the 24-core part that AMD mentioned earlier and the processor was spotted in the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark database by renowned leaker APISAK. The specifications of the two other higher-end chips aren't known at this point in time. The report also details the possible announcement, embargo lift, and availability dates of the new CPUs, as well as that of the alleged high-end AMD chipset dubbed "TRX40" alongside these. While all the three Threadripper models and the TRX40 chipset will be announced in November, the higher-end Threadripper 3990X SKU won't launch until January 2020. As such, all the leaked dates have been listed below: The January 2020 dates for the 3990X seems accurate as AMD themselves mentioned volume availability of the "initial members of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor family" in its tweet. Videocardz's source also has no mention of the "TRX80" chipset as of yet. Therefore, it remains a possibility that more SKUs may launch sometime in the future. Source: 1.
