AMD has released a statement regarding the availability of its heavily anticipated Ryzen 9 3950X and third-gen Threadripper chips. Both of these products will be launching on an unspecified date in November.
The community blog post mentions “strong demand,” which alludes to potential supply issues. The Ryzen 9 3950X has essentially been delayed, as it was originally slated to launch this month.
We are focusing on meeting the strong demand for our 3rd generation AMD Ryzen processors in the market and now plan to launch both the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and initial members of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor family in volume this November. We are confident that when enthusiasts get their hands on the world’s first 16-core mainstream desktop processor and our next-generation of high-end desktop processors, the wait will be well worth it.
