AMD seems to be preparing not one, but two new high-performance Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series processors. In addition to the already announced flagship 64-core processor, AMD can introduce a 48-core model next week. In any case, such a chip is already mentioned in the CPU-Z 1.91 utility code.
We are talking about the Ryzen Threadripper 3980X processor, which has 48 cores and 96 threads. The novelty can fit perfectly between the already released 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and the announced 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, which is due out next week. Of course, the mention of CPU-Z in the code does not mean at all that the processor will certainly come out, but it is very likely that AMD will release it very soon along with the 64-core flagship.
It is easy to guess that, unlike the current Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series with four crystals with processor cores, the future Ryzen Threadripper 3980X and 3990X will include eight 7-nm crystals with Zen 2 cores. In the case of the 48-core Ryzen Threadripper 3980X on each six out of eight cores will be active in the crystal. In this case, the cache of the third level will be available in full volume of 256 MB. The TDP level is likely to be 280 watts to provide maximum frequencies, which, by the way, are still a mystery to older Ryzen Threadripper 3000s.
Given that the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X costs $ 1999, the price of the Ryzen Threadripper 3980X can be approximately $ 2499-2999. Immediately, we can assume that the price of the flagship Ryzen Threadripper 3990X can even reach $ 3499-3999.
