AMD seems to come out on top this time, announcing the world’s most powerful desktop processor: the 24-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and 32-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X, each one reportedly surpassing anything the competition has to offer.
The 3rd gen processors were built with the Zen 2 7-nanometer AMD core architecture and feature 88 PCIe 4.0 lanes.
According to AMD, the flagship 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 3970X offers “up to 90 percent faster performance over the competition”, which is quite the claim.
All that power usually means more consumption as well but AMD says that, compared to their previous generation of processor, the new Ryzen Threadrippers have up to 66 percent better efficiency.
For video editors and other visual artists, AMD claims Adobe Premiere tasks process up to 26 percent quicker than an i9-9920X and up to 42 percent faster than an 8-core Intel i9-9900K.
AMD also boasts about the 32-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X’s up to 90% faster performance in Cinebench R20 nT, up to 49% more performance in V-Ray, up to 43% more performance in Chromium Release 78 Compile and up to 36% more performance in Unreal Engine.
Both processors will be available starting Tuesday, November 19, so you won’t have to wait a lot to upgrade your gaming PC.
