AMD has postponed the announcement of the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 processors, so they will show them to us tomorrow. According to all rumors, only three models are announced: the 24-core Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X.
At the same time, the latter will be released only in January, and it is not very clear why there will not be a 48-core Ryzen Threadripper 3980X.
Be that as it may, now we can take a look at the frequencies of the two younger processors of the new line. The Ryzen Threadripper 3960X will operate at frequencies of 3.5-4.7 GHz, and the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X will operate at frequencies of 3.0-4.2 GHz. In the first case, the parameters are very impressive, given the 24 cores.
If we talk about the current generation, the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX operates at frequencies of 3.0-4.2 GHz, like the 24-core Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX. That is, for the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X, the performance increase will be determined solely by architectural improvements, but for the Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, it will also be due to a significantly increased frequency.
Interestingly, the TDP is supposed to be the same 250 watts as the current generation.
