AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper 3970X processor reveals the true power of the 7nm Zen 2 architecture. The new processor broke record by delivering outstanding performance in overclocking.
AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and 3960X processors are real performance monsters with 32 cores and 64 threads. Both processors were equipped with Precision Boost Overdrive and automatic overclocking in AMD’s Ryzen Master software, and the flagship Threadripper 3970X set a record for performance.
When the Threadripper 3970X is overclocked, the basic clock speed of 3.7GHz can be increased to 4.5GHz. However, TSAIK has made extraordinary overclocks with the Ryzen hardware, achieving a mind-boggling 5.752 GHz clock speed on all 32 cores using a liquid nitrogen cooling system on the Threadripper 3970X. This means an increase of approximately 55% to the basic 3.7 GHz clock speed. Successful overclocking was done using the MSI TRX40 Creator motherboard at 1.1V.
Threadripper 3970X and Threadripper 3960X perform head-to-head with Intel processors in light-threaded applications and outperform heavy-threaded applications. Like the previous Ryzen 3000 family, the 3rd generation Threadripper family is a force to consider and demonstrates the outstanding performance of AMD’s 7nm Zen 2 architecture.
For high-end computers, Threadripper 3960X comes from processors for $ 1,399; The Threadripper 3970X is available for $ 1,999. The Threadripper 3990X with 64 cores and 128 threads will be added to the series in 2020.
