MSI Leaks 64 Core AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X

And this is why you should always be careful when uploading pictures of THINGS UNDER EMBARGO. MSI accidentally leaked what is almost certainly the Threadripper 3990X through an unintentional photo that went up on their website.

All the picture shows is a guy with the task manager open, so what’s so special about it? The eagle-eyed folks over at WCCFTech counted the processor cores/threads open in task manager view and realized there are 128 threads up. The only possible chip this can be is the Threadripper flagship, the 3990X, with 64 cores.

MSI wasn’t trying to show the 3990X, of course. They’d put up a video of the TRX 40 Creator motherboard and an “unnamed” Threadripper processor being used. But with the task manager open, it’s clear exactly what model we’re looking at.

What would pricing be like for a 64 core 128 thread consumer CPU? Well, the Threadripper 3970X is set to arrive with 32 cores and 64 threads at $1999. Considering that AMD’s chiplet design allows them to scale costs linearly (and adding a bit on top), we wouldn’t be surprised by a $5000 sticker price. For that many cores, this is remarkable value. As a flagship Threadripper part, you also get 128 PCIe 4 lanes and 288 MB (???) of cache, all running at a sub-300W TDP. That’s crazy good value for video editing professionals and anyone else who needs that many cores.
