The Ashes of the Singularity benchmarking tool is notorious for revealing info about unreleased CPUs and GPUs. The newest one comes in the form of a 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper part, the 3960X packing 24 cores, and 48 threads. The data was shared by well-known chip detective, TUM_APISAK shortly after another source leaked a memo containing a dozen Threadripper and Renoir parts.
Considering that the Ryzen 9 3950X is the top-end consumer part with 16 Cores, the 3950X should be one of the lower-end Threadripper products with 24 Cores. Going by this, it’s very possible that the TR 3970X will be a 32 Core part, the 3980X a 48 core and the 3990X the 64 Core behemoth we’ve been hearing so much about.
Komachi’s memo is rather cryptic with just the placeholders, rather than the actual names. As you can see, there’s a 16 core Threadripper and a 32 core, both sporting TDPs of 280W. However, there’s no mention of the 24 core or the 64 core variants. There are a bunch of other models but as the core counts aren’t given and the TDPs are identical, they aren’t really helpful.
Lastly, there’s also mention of the Ryzen 9 (and the Ryzen 4000 APU: Renoir) that has a TDP of 105W. This is most likely the 3950X. As for the next-gen APU, we still know very little. What’s established is that the products will be based on the 7nm Zen 2 cores but will retain the Vega graphics processor. The estimated release date for Renoir is still quite far away. Not this year to say the least.
As for the 3rd Gen Threadripper parts and the 16 core 3950X, both these parts are slated to launch next month, so it won’t be long before we see more leaks pertaining to these enthusiast CPUs.
