AMD’s 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are now almost confirmed to launch on the 19th of November, i.e next month. The company is expected to unveil three HEDT CPUs: The 3960X, 3970X and 3990X. The 3960X is going to be a 24 core part with 48 threads, the 3970X will be a 32 core CPU with 64 threads while the 3990X is said to be the mighty 64 core processor that everyone has been talking about. There’s no mention of the 3980X, a supposed 48 core chip that sits between the flagship 3990X and the 3970X, but it’s possible it’ll be announced at a later date.
The source claims that the 3rd Gen Threadrippers will be unveiled on the 5th of November with the chips hitting retail on

The new TRX40 chipset for the 3rd Gen Threadripper CPUs is also slated to be launched on the 5th of November. All major motherboard manufacturers such as MSI, ASUS, ASRock and Gigabyte will be demoing their new TR boards. However, there’s still no news on the 3980X and the TRX80 chipset, and at this point, their existence is really just a rumor.
Lastly, keep in mind that these dates aren’t set in stone and may change as the source claims that the info is a couple of weeks old.
