    A brief interview with Martin Boonstra from AMD...where he confirms that the 3990x is arriving next year...

    AMD THREADRIPPER 3rd Gen launch interview with AMDs Matijn Boonstra - 3960X & 3970X

    Nikki Dean talks to Martin Boonstra from AMD about the newly released Threadripper 3rd Gen CPUs. 2 new parts are available, the 24 core 3960X and the 32 core 3970X.

    "Well, to be fair, Intel's closest competitor to the $2000 Threadripper 3970x is Xeon W-3175X at $3000 and it's actually slower than the Threadripper while consuming more power and lacking fast PCI-E 4.0.

    Not to mention the motherboards for [Xeon W-3175X] cost ~$1700.
    That $2000 Threadripper chip is pretty cheap if you look at what the alternatives are so not sure why people complain so much.

    If you need a very fast CPU without breaking the bank, there's the 16-core Ryzen 3950x (aka "baby Threadripper") at $750. It's actually a bit faster than Intel's newest 18[core @ $999]."

    We all agree, the 3950x, 3960x and 3970x are fast, the real question now, where to get one? You seem to be, as usual, ignoring the Elephant in the room.

    Edit; Ebay China gouging
    3960x $1660.96 +$100.00 shipping
    3970x $2700.00 + $100.00 shipping

    AMD’s Ryzen 9 3950X & Ryzen 9 3900X CPUs Are Still Impossible To Buy At This Point Wccftech.com | Nov 29, 2019

    On top of this, the Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X HEDT processors are following suit, having launched two nights ago, and already being completely unavailable. As of right now, the only way to get these higher-end processors is to go through a PC builder website, which will significantly increase the cost as you will be paying for a full computer rather than just a single component.

    3900x are impossible to buy? My microcenter always has stacks of them...

    The lower end are about, the higher end ones are not. Since the release of the 3950x the 12 core is no longer the hens tooth although they are still pretty high in demand.

    Not good, but this has been going on ever since the chips were released. And Intel is having its own supply problems. One effect of the (welcome) competition is that the technology is being pushed hard, but a side effect of that is that they're pushing the process and manufacturing limits.

    I rather wish they'd release the 3900 (non-X) to the retail channel. It's a little slower than the 3900X, but they probably have a better supply of chiplets that can run at that frequency, and it would still be an awesome chip in the $400-$450 range.

    Huh... I would imagine that 64GB of RAM would be more than enough to last years for CI/CD systems.
    128GB could easily last over 5 years.
    Plus, lets not forget that Zen 3 will be released next year (2020), so, if we get a core increase alongside IPC/clock/efficiency improvements (which seems possible if AMD takes advantage of the density increase in the 7nm EUV), there's also a chance AMD could increase the RAM ceiling too on the replacement part for 3950x on Zen 3, and you can just use Zen 2 right now and get close to the max RAM, and upgrade later on to Zen 3 equivalent replacement with more RAM support with a simple BIOS update.

    I would not count on the update with a simple bios. 2020 is about here and with the silicon shortage it would not surprise if theses become 2021 chips or beyond. Also as of late AMD is not as honest as it has been before. x399 took the first hit, now no initial available silicon in 3960x or 3970x in the retail space at release is the next victim. Without new 7nm silicon till mid next year the 3880x and 3990x may be the next victims along with Zen3 following.
