According to a slide Videocardz received today, AMD will launch Ryzen 9 3950X as world’s first 16-core mainstream processor. The slide basically “confirms” the speculation which began at Ryzen 3000 announcement at Computex.
AMD Ryzen 9 3950X would utilize all available cores from both dies. It would preserve the TDP from Ryzen 9 3900X which features 12 cores but at the cost of a lower base clock. This AM4 processor is supposedly a 105W TDP part.
The Ryzen 9 3950X is clocked at 3.50 GHz, with a maximum boost frequency of 4.70 GHz and pricing and availability date have not yet been confirmed.
