AMD is preparing to launch its new Ryzen 9 3950X -- its flagship 16C/32T processor and the world's first 16-core gaming CPU that will boost up to 4.7GHz and offer 72MB of cache.

Now we have German retailer Digitec listing the chip with a release date of September 30, and what appears to be a placeholder price of 999 euros which works out to $1102 or so -- much more than the MSRP of $749.

AMD will have quite the gaming and multi-tasking chip on its hands with the Ryzen 9 3950X, offering a huge 16C/32T of CPU performance at 3.5GHz base clock and up to 4.7GHz boost -- the fastest for a Ryzen 3000 series CPU.

The closest chip to this in the new Zen 2-powered Ryzen 3000 series line up is the Ryzen 9 3900X, which only has 12C/24T in comparison. It's also much cheaper at $499, and has CPU clocks that are close with up to 4.6GHz boost CPU clocks.

We should expect AMD to launch the new Ryzen 9 3950X later this month.
