AMD Launches 12-Core Ryzen 9 3900-X Which is Cheaper than Intel’s Top of the Line i9 9920X

AMD CEO Lisa Su announced the new Ryzen 9 12-core CPUs in a keynote in Taipei. Even though the event starts officially from tomorrow, the CEO announced the launch of new Ryzen 9 12-core CPUs with model number 3900-X. Surprisingly, these new CPUs are cheaper than Intel’s best Core i9 9920X processor, which is the top of the line processor as of now from Intel. COMPUTEX 2019 is officially starting tomorrow, but in the advanced keynote, Lisa Su took pleasure to announce a new lineup of CPUs from AMD.

The new Ryzen 9 3900-X is a desktop processor with a 7-nm chip inside it. The processor is from the third-generation lineup from AMD of Ryzen series CPUs. The processor comes with 12-cores and 24-threads support and will go on sale from July 7th with the price tag of $499 only. The price of Ryzen 9 3900-X is almost half the price of its nearest competitor, which is Intel’s Core i9 9920X processor, which retails at around $1,189/- in the United States markets. This is surprising to see AMD is giving fierce competition to Intel in Processor segment with affordable pricing and astonishing configurations.

Not just the Ryzen 9 series CPUs, but AMD also announced that the first NAVI GPU chips would be the part of AMD Radeon RX 7500 series of Graphics processor units. The new NAVI GPUs with AMD Radeon RX 7500 series won’t be available till July, as the company has yet to announce the product itself. But, if the product does come with competitive pricing, then the market giant NVIDIA has to come up with something different. Currently, AMD did not share any specifications, configurations, or pricing details about the Radeon RX 7500 series, but they are expected to announce the same at E3 2019, which is scheduled just a few weeks from now.
