AMD’s third-generation Reelon Threadripper processor (hereinafter referred to as Ryzen TR) has been released for several days, with the 24-core ThreadRipper 3960X and the 32-core ThreadRipper 3970X version selling for $10699, $15299. Next year there will be a 64-core 12-threaded Ryon Threadripper 3990X processor on the market, the price has not been announced, imagine.
For the Ryzen TR III, AMD previously published the core photo of the processor, from the photo, TR 3970X is a group of 4 CPU cores, 1 group of IO core, theoretically up to 32 core 64 threads, no possibility of opening the core, while the Ryzen TR 3960X is each group of units to open 6 cores, a total of 24 core 48 threads.
How exactly is the Ryzen TR processor made up? Robert Hallock, AMD’s Director of Technology Marketing, has released detailed data on the Ryzen TR III processor, as follows:
The underlying parameters of the Ryzen TR 3970X/3960X are no longer repeated, the main differences are the core number, frequency, L2 cache, and others such as 128MB L3 cache, TDP 280W, TRX40 slot, etc. are the same.
Players who have seen the AMD 7nm Zen2 architecture should know that this generation of processors is a small chip design for chiplets, divided into CPU core (CCD), IO Core (IOD), which is made of TSMC 7nm process, and the gf GF Gf 12nm process.
Specifically, the Ryzen TR 3970X has four CCD cores, each with eight CPU cores, a CCD core area of 74mm2, with 3.9 billion transistors integrated, and an IOD core of 416mm2 with 8.34 billion transistors.
As a result, the total area of the Ryzen TR III processor is 712mm2, with a total of 23.94 billion transistors.
This is only the CPU part, the chipset part of the TRX40 is actually an IOD core, using the GF 14nm process manufactured, TDP up to 15W, although AMD did not disclose its specific specifications.
