AMD's Threadripper 3000 series processor names, potential announcement dates leak

About a month ago, AMD officially revealed via a Twitter post that the company's third-generation Threadripper HEDT CPUs will be launching sometime in November this year. Today, Videocardz reports that they have received further information about the possible launch dates and the names of Threadripper 3000 series SKUs.

As per this report, AMD plans to launch three Threadripper models:

  • Threadripper 3960X
  • Threadripper 3970X
  • Threadripper 3990X

The 3960X is likely the 24-core part that AMD mentioned earlier and the processor was spotted in the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark database by renowned leaker APISAK.

The specifications of the two other higher-end chips aren't known at this point in time.

The report also details the possible announcement, embargo lift, and availability dates of the new CPUs, as well as that of the alleged high-end AMD chipset dubbed "TRX40" alongside these. While all the three Threadripper models and the TRX40 chipset will be announced in November, the higher-end Threadripper 3990X SKU won't launch until January 2020. As such, all the leaked dates have been listed below:

Announcement Specs reveal Review NDA lift Availability
Threadripper 3990X November 5 January 2020 January 2020 January 2020
Threadripper 3970X November 5 November 5 November 19 November 19
Threadripper 3960X November 5 November 5 November 19 November 19
TRX40 chipset November 5 November 5 November 19 November 19

The January 2020 dates for the 3990X seems accurate as AMD themselves mentioned volume availability of the "initial members of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor family" in its tweet.

Videocardz's source also has no mention of the "TRX80" chipset as of yet. Therefore, it remains a possibility that more SKUs may launch sometime in the future.
