AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X

AMD announced its most powerful desktop processor to date, the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, which comes with 64 cores. That’s double the number of cores of the Threadripper 3970X that AMD released last fall and the same number of cores as AMD’s most powerful EPYC Rome server processors.

AMD CEO Lisa Su pitched the 64-core Threadripper as a content creation juggernaut, capable of performing render workloads 30 percent faster than two of Intel’s Xeon Platinum 8280 server processors at less than a fifth of the price. Compared to Intel’s top mainstream Core i9-9900KS desktop processor, Su said the Threadripper 3990X outperforms by several magnitudes.

Beyond its 64 cores, the Threadripper 3990X comes with 128 threads, up to a 4.3 GHz boost frequency, and2.9 GHz base frequency. The processor will be available for $3,990 on Feb. 7.

The Threadripper 3990X is coming out after AMD launched its first two third-generation Threadripper processors — the 24-core Threadripper 3960X and the 32-core Threadripper 3970X — as well as its top mainstream processor, the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X last fall.

The processors, which are based on AMD's 7-nanometer Zen 2 architecture, are expected to create more competition for Intel in the high-end desktop and workstation markets.
