What you need to know
- AMD announces a new 64-core Threadripper 3990X.
- Rocking 64 cores, 128 threads and a boost speed up to 4.2GHz.
- The new processor will cost $3,990 and will hit stores in February 2020.
AMD wasn't content with halting at 32 cores for Threadripper. The company chose this family name for a reason and it was only a matter of time for it to announce a 64-core processor and that was exactly what we got at CES 2020. The new Threadripper 3990X is set to really switch things up with some considerable specifications.
You'll be able to enjoy a boost of up to 4.3GHz with all 128 threads, making this a killer CPU for creators and those requiring massive amounts of computing power. AMD even states that this thing is much faster (around 30%) than a dual Intel Xeon 8280 configuration, which would come in at around $20,000. Support for quad-channel DDR4 and ECC RAM, 88 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and up to a 288MB combined cache round out some of the truly ridiculous specs.
The new Threadripper 3990X will cost ... unsurprisingly $3,990 in February 2020.
