Last night, AMD has officially announced its Radeon RX 6000 series refresh with three new SKUs, the Radeon RX 6950...
AMD has previously teased the supposed launch for their Ryzen 9 3950X in September – which is this month, but it seems that they have decided to delay the launch to a later date.
According to the official update that was posted on the AMD community blog, the launch for the Ryzen 9 3950X has been delayed to November together with the next gen Threadripper:
“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.”
Looks like it will be another waiting game for those who have been waiting for the Ryzen 9 3950X since its official announcement at E3 2019. It’s not entirely bad news, especially for those who are looking forward to the upgrade but currently on a tight situation because you have already allocated your budget for the newly launched gadgets. Not to mention that there will more options for you to consider for – What will you go for? The Ryzen 9 3950X or the new powerhouse next gen Threadripper?
