The AMD Threadripper 2990X has reappeared, this time in the 3DMARK database. It is not the first time that we obtain information about the new processor presented in Computex 2018 by AMD. We are facing the processor of 32 cores and high performance of the company that will work on the chipset X399.
The new processor of AMD, the Threadripper 2990X has 32 cores and 64 threads, this being the largest number of cores that has had any processor intended for use by consumers. We already knew enough data about this new processor, it will have a TDP of 250 W, a data cache L1 of 32 KB x 32, a cache L1 of instructions of 64 KB x 32, a cache L2 of 521 KB x 32 and an L3 cache of 8 MB x 8.
One of the data we did not know was its maximum speed, which 3DMARK places at 3.792 MHz (3.8 GHz). With this turbo AMD settles its winning role in this market and moves away from Intel and its processor that a user on foot could not use.
Together with the information from 3DMARK we have been able to verify that the new processor has appeared listed on the Cyberport website with a price of 1509 euros. In addition, we can verify that the speeds given by 3DMARK of this new processor are not the same as those that appear in the name of the product: 3.4 GHz with a maximum speed of 4 GHz.
AMD said it would launch two new 32-core and 24-core Threadrippers, but did not disclose their names, so today’s leaks can be seen as confirmation that the Threadripper 2990X will be the name of the top model of this AMD enthusiast range.
The differences between the frequencies of the processor in the benchmark released by Cinebench and the one revealed today in 3DMARK can correspond to different processor tests. In the Cinebench we could see that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X was able to reach 4.15 GHz through OC. So, until AMD releases its specifications we know that its base speeds are between 3 GHz and 3.4 GHz and turbo between 3.8 GHz and 4 GHz.
