Early Q3 of 2019 welcomes the Ryzen 9 3900X, AMD’s current top of the range, third generation Ryzen flagship which is setting a new standard for high-end workstation processors. This is AMD’s first Ryzen 9 processor and is a 12-core, 24-thread CPU based on their latest 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. A second Ryzen 9 CPU in the form of the 16-core, 32-thread 3950X is expected around early Q4 of 2019. The 3900X has a boost/base clock of 3.8/4.6 GHz, 64 MB of L3 cache (double the L3 on the rest of 3000 series), support for 3200 MHz DDR4 system memory and a TDP of 105W. All this, plus a Wraith Prism cooler, at a relatively accessible launch price of $499 USD. By comparison, Intel’s coolerless 12-core, 24 thread i9-9920X is currently available for $1200 USD which is well over twice as expensive as the 3900X. Early benchmarks illustrate that the extra dollar spend does not translate to extra performance, with the i9-9920X having just a 4% greater peak overclocked benchmark than the 3900X across single, quad and multi-core workloads. Currently in terms of multi-core performance at this price point, there is no threat from Intel. The only real competitor is the upcoming 16-core, 32-thread 3950X ($749 USD) or possibly the slightly more affordable (but significantly worse value for money) 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 3800X ($399 USD) which sits just below in the new Zen 2 line-up. Like the others in the 3000 series, the Ryzen 9 3900X can plug into the new PCIe 4.0 enabled X570 motherboard via an AM4 socket, as well as 400 and 300 series motherboards. [Jul '19 CPUPro]
