With Ryzen 9 3950X, AMD claims to provide a 16 core processor for mainstream desktops. The processor will run at a base clock of 3.5 GHz and boost up to whopping 4.7 GHz. With a TDP similar to the high-end Ryzen 7 sibling, the Ryzen 9 3950X will be priced considerably higher at $749. The selective binning technique used by AMD specifically for the 3950X might be the reason for the higher cost of the processor. Furthermore, a Wraith Prism RGB Cooler is also included with the CPU. With the launch of Ryzen 9 3950X, AMD might just be able to dethrone Intel’s i9 as “the best gaming CPU”.
