MSI may have accidentally leaked AMD’s flagship 3rd Gen Threadripper. A monitor with a 16×8 grid of logical processors in Windows 10’s Task Manager could be seen in the company’s now-removed Creator TRX40 motherboard video, which alludes to a CPU with 128 threads (and 64 cores). That sounds a lot like the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. According to Wccftech, it’ll debut in January 2020 for $2999.

For comparison, the Ryzen Threadripper 3970X features 64 threads and the TRX40 creator doesn’t feature two sockets so it is definitely a single chip that features 128 threads. There is also no possibility that this could just be the 2nd Generation EPYC chip as those are designed around the server platform and there have been failed attempts before to booth EPYC chips on the HEDT X399 platform.
