AMD Announces Athlon 3000G Processor; Available 19 November

AMD Announces Athlon 3000G Processor; Available 19 November

AMD has today unveiled its Threadripper workstation CPUs, the TR 3960X and the TR3970X.

The Ryzen 9 3950X also ships with an eco-mode that brings down the TDP 65W.

Either way, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X might still be on your list if you're looking for a processor that can handle heavy workloads but isn't quite in the HEDT space. The new 3960X is AMD's new baseline Threadripper CPU and it offers 24 cores and 48 threads meanwhile the 3970X offers 32 cores and 64 threads. Both processors are said to include 32MB L2 cache, 256MB L3 cache, a TDP of 250 watts, and make use of the TRX4 socket. It's definitely not gaming performance, which AMD says is comparable to the $500-odd Intel Core i9-9900K, and you're not going to get substantially better single core performance from it either.

AMD stats that the Ryzen can do some Adobe Premiere tasks 26% faster than an i9-9920X does them, outputs 2.34 more performance per watt than the i9 and is overall less hungry for power than its more expensive rival. The new CPU will be hitting retail on the 25th of November with a $749 price tag. According to AMD, that's because it's been specifically optimised for 280mm or more liquid coolers this time as opposed to traditional tower-style fans.

Price-wise, the recommended pricing for Intel's Core i9-9980XE sits at $1,999, which is the same as the new Threadripper 3970X but comes with almost half as many cores and lower boost and base frequencies of 4.4GHz and 3GHz, respectively. It comes with a 140MB cache and will be priced at $1399 United States dollars.

Burkina Faso leader expresses shock after attack kills 37
The country's northern provinces have been battling a four-year-old wave of jihadist violence that came from neighboring Mali. The company blamed "armed bandits" for remaining twelve months's attacks, and therefore strengthened its armed escorts.

The chipset is also overclockable to 3.9GHz, which further improves the CPU performance.

Along with the third-gen Threadripper lineup and TRX40 motherboard lineup, AMD also introduced the flagship processor of mainstream Ryzen lineup. That's mostly because they've been primed and ready to take advantage of the super fast PCIe 4.0 standard, and the sTRX4 platform will support a massive 72 PCIe 4.0 lanes in total.

AMD's performance preview gives us some comparisons against the Intel Core i9-9980XE. 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen chipsets will go on sale from November 25.

Finally, AMD announced a new addition to its Athlon line of processors, the AMD Athlon 3000G. What do you all think of the specs and pricing for AMD's latest and greatest?
