The box you see above contains AMD's first 16-core 32-thread processor for their mainstream platform. It utilizes the Zen 2 microarchitecture, which is not only faster, better designed, and more power-efficient than Zen 1, but it also utilizes TSMC's 7nm node. What you see above is the flagship CPU of AMD's 3000-series product lineup and could possibly be their best processor.

Let's take it for a spin.



Details are already known about the processor, although you can't buy it until November 25th. For starters, the CPU features 16-cores and 32-threads. It has a base clock of 3.5GHz, but can Turbo up to 4.7GHz, AMD's highest boost.

Just like the other high-end 3000-series CPUs for the AM4 platform, it offers PCI-E 4.0 as well as a TDP of 105W. Total L3 cache is a whopping 64MB, that's a lot.


The Ryzen 9 3950X is priced at $749, but we are not quite sure how supply and demand at launch will affect this as it typically does regardless of vendor and product placement.
