AMD names 24-core Zen2 CPU as Ryzen Threadripper 3960X

Today a well-known leaker – APISAK – spotted, what appears to be, the first entry of the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series in the AoTS database.

The first thing that comes to mind when looking at the leaked TR 3000 naming schema is: are they increasing core count for lower SKUs in the lineup? If they are, it likely means that we are going to see 3980X and 3990X SKUs with 32+ cores (otherwise this naming change wouldn’t really make much sense).

Yesterday, a leak from the AMD Master Product list has emerged, where the manufacturer confirmed Threadripper going up to 280W. This is the same TDP as recently launched EPYC 7H12 with 64-cores. Although the entry in the Master List was clearly tagged as “32C” (32 cores).

It does, however, seem unlikely that 32-core Threadripper based on Zen2 architecture would require more power than 2990WX based on Zen+. That said, we suspect that this TDP will be adopted by more TR 3000 processors.
