From PC Mag: And the hits keep coming. Looking to cap off what's already been a banner year for AMD, the company announced three new processors today that will add to its swelling lineup of consumer-facing CPUs.
Hot off the wildly successful introduction of the Ryzen 3000 Series processors, AMD is bolstering the top of its CPU lineup with the new Ryzen 9 3950X, a 16-core, 32-thread beast of a chip that is being marketed to gamers and content creators alike.
Featuring a 72MB L2+L3 cache and a TDP of just 105 watts, AMD says the Ryzen 9 3950X will offer up to 2.34x performance per watt over Intel's Core i9-9920X, while also posting performance results up to 26 percent faster than the i9-9920X in creator software applications like Adobe Premiere. The 3950X will feature a base clock of 3.5GHz and a max boost clock of 4.7GHz.
Next, AMD pulled the sheet off its latest HEDT (high-end desktop) Threadripper processors, the 24-core, 48-thread 3.8GHz base/4.5GHz boost clock Threadripper 3960X and 32-core, 64-thread 3.7GHz base/4.5GHz boost clock Threadripper 3970X. Though it's difficult to find a 1:1 comparison for AMD's Threadripper processors (Intel doesn't offer anything that matches the same insane core/thread count of these CPUs), that didn't stop AMD from showing off how much faster both than 3960X and 3970X are than Intel's closest counterpart, the 18-core, 36-thread Core i9-9980XE.
