We’ve known for some time that the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X CPU is slated for release sometime this month, but AMD has stopped short of providing a firm date until now.
AMD Ryzen 3950x Release Date Leak
However, going by a listing on German storefront Digitec, we may not have long to wait. According to the site, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is launching on September 30th and is listed at 999.00€.
You’ll agree that’s a hefty down payment for any processor and is presumably no more than a stopgap in anticipation of receiving a definitive official price from AMD, which is expected to be around the $750 mark going by what was shared with the press when the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X was announced back at E3 in June of this year.
As always take the news with a bucket load of salt as it remains unconfirmed. What is certain is that the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X will release at the latest on September 30th, barring any delays on the manufacturer side. Expect an announcement from AMD before long.
AMD Ryzen 3950x Specs
For those that missed the initial news, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is a beefy 16-core, 32-thread processor with a 72 MB L3 cache, 105W TDP, AM4 socket, with a base clock speed of 3.50 GHz, and a boost clock speed of 4.7 GHz.
It’s one of the highest core-count, not to say one of the most powerful, chips AMD has ever shipped expressly targeting the mainstream consumer. The price is high but should suit professionals and gamers looking for a cheaper alternative to the AMD line of HEDT chip processors.
